SKREI: many parties involved

When SKREI is realised, there are many parties involved. LPO architects are responsible for the new building “Otolitten”. Expology AB is working together with Museum Nord on the content of the large main exhibition in the Otolite. Asplan Viak is a landscape architect. We are proud to say that all parties are very reputable.

There are many parties involved in the actual planning and construction process for SKREI. We are proud to have had such skilled partners involved in realizing SKREI. The work done by the parties is led by Museum Nord’s project manager for SKREI and selected teams.

When SKREI is realised, it requires many parties involved in the construction industry. In addition to the above, there will eventually be many providers of services. Museum Nord’s own employees are, of course, very much involved in the work of realising SKREI.
