OSLO: NCC Construction Norway has been commissioned to construct the Abels Hus office property in Trondheim, Norway, for the property developer, KLP Eiendom. The order is worth SEK 295 million.
The Abels Hus project represents the fourth of five phases in the expansion of Trondheim’s technology village. Abels Hus will be a flexible office property with a high environmental standard. The property will be environmentally classified as Excellent according to Breeam-NOR, with a Class A energy label.
We are delighted to have signed this agreement with one of Norway’s largest and most professional property developers. Thanks to our collaboration early in the project, we have been able to develop innovative and sustainable solutions,” says Håkon Tjomsland, Business Area Manager for NCC Construction Norway.
Development of the project has been in progress for six months, in which construction companies, architects, advisors and subcontractors, together with NCC, have cooperated in NCC Project Studio. This cooperation enabled an increase in the number of office workplaces, a reduction in construction costs and the implementation of additional environmental and energy-efficient solutions. Abels Hus will also be fitted with a roof of sedum (stonecrop). Sedum absorbs dust and air pollution, and also reduces drainage to the sewage network. Sedum will also have a positive impact on the biological diversity.
The Abels Hus project encompasses a gross area of 19,000 square meters, and comprises six floors as well as a basement for parking and storage. The office premises will have a flexible layout, with space for up to 800 workplaces.
The project is scheduled for completion in March 2017. The order will be registered during the first quarter of 2015 in the NCC Construction Norway business area.
The NCC Project Studio concept utilizes the collective expertise of all partners in order to jointly design the optimal end solution. Starting in August 2014, the team has focused on optimizing the premises in terms of flexibility, user-friendliness and environment.
