‘During 2019, we noted a solid increase in sales against the previous year in both Norway and Sweden. In Norway, we have enjoyed success on several projects in both Oslo and Trondheim.

During the 1st quarter of 2020, a new stage of sales will begin at Middelthunet (94 units), while the first stages at Løren Botaniske (70 units) in Oslo and the wooden house project Cederhusen i Hagastaden in Stockholm (60 units) will also launch. These will all be important contributing factors to activities over the course of the year, according to Porsmyr.
