Kristiansand municipality and Veidekke today signed a contract for the
construction of Wilds Minne school, which will accommodate 500 primary level
students. With high environmental ambitions, the project will emphasise reuse,
environmental benefits and innovation. The value of the collaborative design and
build contract is NOK 376 million excl. VAT.

The new Wilds Minne school will comprise an area of approx. 6,000 m[2], in
addition to a 3,500 m[2] multi-purpose facility with commercial premises on the
ground floor. The 500 students and 60 school staff will be able to enjoy a
stunning outdoor area and a school building constructed with extensive use of
massive wood and environmentally friendly solutions.

"After long and strong collaboration with Kristiansand municipality and the
other parties involved in the development of this sustainable and solid school
project, we are happy to see the political process concluded, and excited to
finally be able to start construction. We appreciate being entrusted with the
assignment," says Atle Monan, district manager at Veidekke Construction Agder.
