Veidekke ASA: To build even more at Vollebekk
OBOS Nye Hjem and Aspelin Ramm have awarded Veidekke the contract to build Fiolen, which is the third building stage with 116 apartments, commercial premises and parking facilities at Vollebekk in eastern Oslo. This is a turnkey construction contract valued at NOK 232 million, excluding VAT.
This stage comprises a building consisting of four parts from six to eight storeys above ground. In addition to the 116 apartments, Veidekke shall erect a shell for commercial premises on the lower floors, in addition to parking, storage rooms and technical rooms in two underground storeys.
“We really appreciate the confidence shown in us, and look forward to continuing work on transforming Vollebekk from an industrial site to an attractive residential community. Here we have been a part of developing the project from the start, and together all players have been involved to ensure an optimal and integrated building process,” says director Anders W. Haugen of Veidekke Bygg Oslo.
Vollebekk is located near Risløkka in the district of Bjerke, and was for many years known as an industrial area. This is now changing thanks to a major urban development project in which large sections will be redeveloped from the ground up. The project will be a green and urban district just 13 minutes by Metro from Jernbanetorget, but at the same time close to scenic hiking areas and Lillomarka. When it is complete, the new residential project will comprise more than 800 homes in total, with some commercial premises.
Construction work starts at the end of April, with completion planned for the first half of 2021. More information about the project: www.obos.no/vollebekk
