Veidekke ASA: To build for Entra in Trondheim
Veidekke has been awarded the contract to erect a nine storey, environmentally-certified office building in Trondheim city centre. The client is Entra ASA, and the largest tenant will be the Tax Administration. This is a turnkey construction contract valued at NOK 223 million, excluding VAT.
The building will be certified in accordance with the BREEAM-NOR Excellent environmental standard with A energy labelling. The project will have a central location in Holtermanns veg close to the Lerkendal stadium. The office building will comprise 11,500 m2across nine floors and a basement.
The façades will be anodised aluminium, with large glass surfaces on the ground and first floors facing a courtyard on ground level with opportunities for outdoor dining. The ground floor will have a staff restaurant, coffee bar and customer service point for visitors to the Tax Administration. The basement will have a large number of parking spaces for bicycles with a bicycle wash and changing facilities.
The office floors will be functional, flexible and efficient with a modern expression and robust materials. Future-oriented technical solutions, ample ceiling heights and rational load-bearing structures will allow the building to adapt to its users. The Tax Administration will be the main tenant in the building, and will occupy the lower five floors.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the Tax Administration’s employees to the new building in the axis of knowledge at Elgeseter in Trondheim. The planning and construction of the new building in Holtermannsveg is a major project for Entra and important for developments in this city district,” says Director of Project Development Per Ola Ulseth of Entra.
“We would like to thank Entra for the confidence they have shown in us and for the contract. Developing and building future-oriented environmental buildings is something we really appreciate doing. Veidekke and the Tax Administration also have a countrywide agreement where we cooperate in the struggle against crime in the building and construction industry. This makes it all the more fitting that the Tax Administration will occupy the building,” says District Manager Ståle Brovold of Veidekke.
Construction has already started, and the building is scheduled for completion in January 2020.
