Veidekke is to build the first of five office buildings in the Quadrum project in the centre of Kristiansand for Bane NOR Eiendom after working on its design throughout 2019. This is a design and build construction contract valued at approx. NOK 150 million, excluding VAT and with options.
Bane Nor Eiendom established Quadrum AS to develop five buildings on the 'triangle site' between Kristiansand station, the E39 road and the Kvadraturen city district, with excellent views toward the fjord and the surrounding landscape. The goal is that this hub development will become one of the most important landmarks for urban development in South Norway.
The first construction stage that Veidekke will build, the E building, will comprise approx. 6,500 m 2 of office premises on eight floors and 1,700 m 2 of basement space. The site has an attractive exposure towards the fjord and the Kvadraturen city district, and the scale of the building indicates that it will be a prominent and noteworthy reference building in the heart of Kristiansand. The contract with Veidekke also includes options for outdoor work and groundworks with pipes and cables.
'After enjoying a lengthy and good partnership with Bane NOR Eiendom on the design work, we are now grateful and proud to have won the actual construction contract as well. We have extensive expertise on commercial buildings of this type in Veidekke, and we are particularly excited to erect a landmark building that is so central and visible to everyone in our city,' says district manager Atle Monan of Veidekke.
Building is scheduled to start in June with completion in December 2021. More information on the Quadrum project: https://quadrum.no/forste-bygg/
