Veidekke ASA: To build for Brønnøysund Register Centre
Veidekke has been awarded the contract by real estate company Søren Nielsen AS to build en environmentally certified office building that will be leased to the Brønnøysund Register Centre. This will be a design and build contract valued at approx. NOK 500 million, excluding VAT.
“It means a lot to us to win this contract, and we are grateful for the confidence shown in us and proud that we were chosen. This will be an important building for a lot of people, and its location on the quay will make it highly visible from the sea and in the town centre. In addition to extensive requirements to sustainability, energy and the environment, there are stringent security requirements for the building. This will be a unique building, and we are now looking forward to starting construction work,” says director Birte Almeland of Veidekke.
It will be an attractive, modern and efficient office building that will accommodate more than 500 employees of the Brønnøysund Register Centre. The project’s focus is on high quality and strict environmental requirements, as well as meeting the requirements of a modern, knowledge-based enterprise. The building will be certified in accordance with the BREEAM NOR “Very Good” class. The overall floor area will be almost 15,000 m2across two seven storey buildings connected by a central glass atrium. Light, air and views will create well-being and attractive meeting grounds. A canteen with a roof terrace will crown the building with a spectacular view of the open sea and Vega.
“In partnership with client Søren Nielsen AS and RATIO architects, we at Veidekke and our subsidiary Block Berge Bygg have worked on the project since June 2017. Additionally, DNF AS has participated as technical contractor for the entire development phase. Now we’re looking forward to starting the next stage, which is detailed project engineering and then the actual construction of an attractive building that is to be completed in Brønnøysund in the summer of 2021,” says district manager Atle Monan of Veidekke.
