Veidekke ASA: New assignment in Ski
Veidekke Logistikkbygg, the group’s specialist logistics entity, has signed a contract with Veidekke Eiendom, the group’s property development operation, relating to the construction of a combined warehouse and logistics facility at Berghagan in Ski municipality. The primary lessee will be Truck & Trailer Industri AS (TTI). The contract is valued at approximately NOK 125 million excluding value added tax.
“We hope that this will be the first of many collaborations between Veidekke’s property development and logistics operations. The assignment is very much in keeping with our focus on developing and building non-residential buildings as design and build contractor. We look forward to taking on this task, and to fruitful and stimulating cooperation,” says Roar Kristiansen, general manager of Veidekke Logistikkbygg AS.
“Logistics facilities projects are an important long-term element in Veidekke’s strategy for its commercial property development business. This is why we are intensifying our search for new sites in attractive locations which we can develop into logistics-related facilities,” says Veidekke Eiendom’s acquisitions manager Thomas Nielsen.
The new building at Berghagan in Langhus in Ski municipality will total approximately 11,500 m2 gross, and will be built by Veidekke’s logistics operation in cooperation with Veidekke’s Oslo and Follo-based construction operations. Work is due to start immediately, and will proceed in two phases. Project completion is scheduled for the spring of 2020.
