Safe and stimulating environments

Hemsö develops and manages environments that provide the conditions for everyone on our premises to be safe, evolve and grow to their full potential.

Environments with the right conditions

Demographic trends show that the population is growing and getting older, thus increasing the need for buildings for education and elderly care.

Stimulating learning environments

By creating modern, safe and secure schools and preschools, students and staff can focus on learning and development. Hemsö guides its customers when it is time to develop a modern school where areas can be shared, schoolyards are safe and energy use is optimised. When a building is constructed, there are often many requirements and wishes from the operators. Hemsö is a reliable partner in this process.

The schoolyard lift

We have developed Skolgårdslyftet, a concept that aims to create safe schoolyards with areas for both play and rest.

Hemsö has made an inventory of its portfolio of preschool and school playgrounds and has carried out 50 school playground upgrades over five years. Research shows that a well-designed schoolyard benefits children and young people’s learning and performance.

Attractive living environments

A safe and secure nursing home should be accessible and welcoming for both residents and staff. It should be a place where older people feel respected and safe. As a property owner, we take our responsibility to ensure that our buildings are sustainable and maintain good standards for the people in them.

The nursing home of the future

The most important thing for the very oldest people in our nursing homes is safe care and assistance, but also that little bit extra that adds the finishing touch to everyday life. Together with the staff, residents and their relatives, we are driving the development of the nursing home of the future.

Hemsö is implementing several digitalisation projects to further improve the environment for our tenants, including the Internetlyftet initiative, which provides fast and robust internet access in our nursing homes.

Intergenerational meetings

Hemsö strongly believes in generational buildings that enable meetings between young and old.
