Veidekke ASA: Building new car parking at Stavanger Airport, Sola

Veidekke has won the competition and now signed a contract with Avinor to rebuild the parking garage at Stavanger Airport, Sola, after the fire almost two years ago. This is a design and build contract with a value of NOK 360 million, excluding VAT.

The new car park will have a 65,000 m 2 floor area over five floors and accommodate approximately 2,300 cars, just like the previous parking garage that suffered the extensive fire in January 2020. But unlike the previous car park, the new one is divided into two fire sections and fully covered by sprinklers, making this one of Norway’s most fireproof parking garages.

“Veidekke is happy and proud to have won the competition for this assignment, where we were rated best on both price and quality. We are very grateful for the confidence placed in us, and look forward to carrying out the project together with Avinor and Veidekke’s subsidiary Block Berge Bygg,” says Frode Friestad, District Manager at Veidekke Bygg Stavanger.

The old parking garage is currently being demolished and Veidekke starts building work in January. Planned completion is May 2023, with opening in June 2023.
