It was finally announced today that Ringsaker municipality is able to sign the contract with Veidekke for the construction of a new nursing home in Moelv that will achieve the Passivhaus Standard. The commission is a design and build contract with a value of NOK 250 million, excluding VAT.

The new Moelv Nursing Home will provide 60 nursing home places, a day centre, a canteen, sensory gardens and plentiful communal spaces. Energy wells have been selected to provide heating and cooling for the facility, while there will also be extensive use of wood both internally and externally to complement the use of environmentally-friendly concrete in the project. The total usable area will amount to 6,200 m 2 spread over three storeys, and the building will be connected to the Moelv Residential and Activity Centre.

“We are so grateful for this commission and delighted that we will have the opportunity to progress this project. Working in partnership with the municipality of Ringsaker, we are going to build a sustainable, future-oriented nursing home that will benefit its residents, their loved ones and staff,” says Geirmund Østvold, District Manager for Veidekke Bygg Indre Østland.

Preparatory works will begin in January while groundworks are scheduled to commence in March. Construction work begin in May, with planned completion by the end of 2023.
