07.09.2021 - 17:29

Veidekke has been commissioned by OBOS Nye Hjem AS and Nordr AS to continue construction work as part of the Løren Botaniske residential project in Oslo. The commission encompasses the construction of two blocks of apartments housing 91 residential units in total, an underground car park and outdoor works as part of a design and build contract worth approximately NOK 235 million excluding VAT. The project aims to be environmentally certified in accordance with the BREEAM NOR Good standard.

This is a new order relating to the already-commenced Løren Botaniske residential project. The two buildings comprising seven storeys will be adjacent to a courtyard with extensive green and cultivable outdoor areas with a greenhouse and food plants that will allow the residents to harvest fruit and berries. Most of the buildings will also have roof terraces with furnished areas and the opportunity to grow herbs and vegetables, for example. When completed, the entire Løren Botaniske project will comprise 385 apartments in seven detached buildings, a kindergarten and some retail premises.

‘It is both happy news and a boost to our confidence to be entrusted with starting work sooner than originally scheduled and bringing forward the completion date on these homes. Of course, it also gives us the opportunity to ensure excellent levels of continuity on this project, which is one of our biggest phased housing projects. This commission comprises a total of seven buildings, and the full commission at Løren Botaniske is worth almost NOK 1 billion excluding VAT to us sat Veidekke,’ says Anders W. Haugen, Director of Veidekke Bygg Oslo.

The project will be carried out as a fossil-free construction site. Construction work will begin with immediate effect and is scheduled for completion by summer 2023. More information about the project: www.obos.no/lorenbotaniske.no

The contract is included in Veidekke's order backlog for Q2 2021.
