NCC to build green offices in Oslo for SEK 255 millionApr 20, 2012 10:28 BST
NCC Construction Norway has been commissioned to construct an environmentally certified office in Oslo on behalf of WatriumEiendom. The project, in an amount of about SEK 255 million, will commence in the summer and will be registered among orders in the second quarter of 2012.
The office is to be eco-classified in accordance with the BREEAM rating of “Excellent”. It will also be constructed to achieve an energy classification of “A” and meet all the requirements for a passive building. The office will have features such as energy wells with heat pumps and solar cells on the roof, and will be constructed using material that is thermally inert, thus reducing the need for heating and cooling.
The office will have a total of 9,500 square meters of floor space on two floors, with parking space totaling of 4,000 square meters.
“Expertise encompassing various environmental and energy classifications is in increasing demand in the market. We have invested in accumulating competencies in this area and have now received two assignments with environmental profiles within a short period of time,” says District Manager Marius Tunstad at NCC Construction Norway.
NCC has utilized Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) in the project planning process, which is a method whereby 3D models are used to visualize, integrate and automate the various components that are implemented during a construction project, such as project engineering, costing, production scheduling and purchasing.
The project will be implemented as a turnkey contract and finished in October 2013.
