Liquid Real Estate Awards 2008: Best overall developer, Nordic & Baltic regions
The pall that has settled in over most of Europe has weakened the growth outlook for the Nordic region, home to NCC Property Development. The Stockholm-based company is performing well and Peter Wågström, its president, says there is no lack of opportunities. Laurence Neville reports.
NCC develops a reputation beyond its core markets
Nordic firm NCC Property Development has a history dating back to 1875 but the company is firmly focused on the future. Its forward-looking approach to development has helped to win it numerous admirers in the Nordic and Baltic regions. The company topped a number of Nordic region, Finland and Norway categories in Liquid Real Estate’s 2008 poll. NCC has even gained a strong reputation globally on the basis of its regional operations: readers voted the company number three in the best global developer category.
"We spend a lot of time thinking about how people will behave in the future," explains Peter Wågström, president of NCC Property Development, which is based in Stockholm.
