FOJAB opens office in Gothenburg

FOJAB opens an office in Gothenburg on March 1. The office manager is Fredrik Kjellgren who started and ran the sustainability profile Kjellgren Kaminsky.

FOJAB is one of Sweden's leading architectural firms with around 150 employees. The head office is located in Malmö and there are also offices in Stockholm and Helsingborg. The recruitment of Fredrik Kjellgren will be the starting point for the new Gothenburg office.

- We have won a number of competitions in western Sweden in recent years and feel that we need a stronger local presence. Gothenburg is an exciting market where a lot is happening, and there is an awareness of architectural quality that is driven by the municipality. We believe we can contribute to the city's ambitions - even more so now with Fredrik's help," says CEO Daniel Nord.

Fredrik Kjellgren started Gothenburg-based Kjellgren Kaminsky in 2007, an office that was already strong in sustainability with a focus on certifications, energy-efficient buildings and recycling. Fredrik is an architect and interior designer with experience from furniture to urban planning from early to late stages in Sweden and the Nordics. Two years after selling his company, he now chooses to join FOJAB.

- FOJAB has completed some fantastic projects; large complex buildings with high architectural standards and attention to detail. I feel that we share the same values, we have the same ideas about architecture, how to work together and how to run a business. There is room here to drive the development of both operations, new offices and new projects," says Fredrik Kjellgren.

- Fredrik is a strong architect and a pioneer in sustainability. His experience and drive in this area are very important to us. In addition, he has successfully built up an office before. We are so happy that he is joining us," says CEO Daniel Nord.

The ambition for the Gothenburg office is to grow gradually with a focus on high architectural quality, strong competence and a really good mix of people who want to create joy in their work.

- Of course, it can be perceived as cocky that we are expanding in the middle of a recession and declining construction market, but we see strong development and potential in Gothenburg and western Sweden. We are rigging the organization now so that we are ready when things turn around," says CEO Daniel Nord.
