This is confirmation that our efforts have been recognized,” says Rolf Thorsen, President of NCC Property Development in Norway.

Nordic Built is a program aimed at accelerating the development of sustainable construction technologies and concepts throughout the Nordic Region.

“Participation in such an initiative is a natural step for NCC to take. We will continue to operate at the leading edge in terms of building solutions that are sound and intelligent for both people and the environment. I am delighted that an increasing number of customers want to accompany us on this journey,” says Joachim Hallengren, President of the NCC Property Development business area.

Nordic Built is funded by and under the supervision of Nordic Innovation, which in turn is an institution controlled by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
