Veidekke ASA: Veidekke to build more homes for Thon in LÃ¸renskog
Veidekke EntreprenÃ¸r AS has been awarded the contract to build the second stage
of the Eventyrtunet housing project, close to LÃ¸renskog StorsenterÂ near Oslo.
Now 145 flats in three buildings will be built, in addition to the development
of infrastructure. The principal is Olav Thon Gruppen through ThongÃ¥rd AS. The
project is a turnkey contract valued at NOK 250 million excluding VAT.
"The Eventyrtunet housing project is divided into three stages. We started
building the first 89 flats in the summer of 2012. While these are being
completed, we have now started the second construction stage. This comprises
145 flats with a total floor area of 16,500 m(2). These are distributed over
three buildings varying from four to seven storeys over a communal parking
cellar," says Odd Arne Lian, head of department with Veidekke.
The flats will range in size from 28 to 140 m(2), and all residents will have
access to a car-free park-like outdoor area with lawns and plants. Eventyrtunet
is centrally located in LÃ¸renskog municipality, 15 minutes from downtown Oslo
and less than 10 minutes from LillestrÃ¸m.
The buildings will have pile foundations directly on bedrock. They will be built
in concrete with faÃ§ades of plaster, wood and glass/windows. Work is to be
completed by the second quarter of 2015.
