Veidekke ASA: To build a multipurpose hall for Oslo municipality

Veidekke's subsidiary Seby AS and Oslobygg KF have signed a contract for the construction of a new multipurpose hall at Dælenenga in the Grünerløkka district of Oslo. The project has high environmental ambitions for both the finished building and the construction phase. This will be a design and build contract worth almost NOK 250 million, excluding VAT.

Dælenenga multipurpose hall will have approximately 6,100 m 2 over four floors, including a full-scale sports hall with grandstands, changing rooms, offices and an entire floor for combat sports. The hall is located in the same place where the existing clubhouse stands today, and demolition of the old clubhouse is part of the commission. The multipurpose hall is planned to primarily be used by the school during the day and for sports purposes in the evening.

“We look forward to embarking on this exciting project for Oslobygg. Sustainable solutions in all phases of a construction project are fully in line with Seby's environmental ambitions. It is also motivating to build a socially beneficial building that has been long-awaited by Grünerløkka's residents,” says Bjørn Ove Liavaag, General Manager of Seby AS.

Greenhouse gas emissions from the new building will be reduced by 50% compared to a reference project. This will be a fossil-free building site where district heating is also used as an energy source during the construction phase and the building is being constructed to passive building standard with solar cells on the roof.

The project will comply with the strict requirements adopted by the City of Oslo to ensure the use of apprentices and to combat work-related crime and social dumping. Construction is scheduled to start in November 2021 with completion scheduled for December 2023. Read more about the project here.
