Veidekke is to build 52 eco-certified apartments in Lillestrøm for OBOS Nye Hjem
and Otto Olsen Boligutvikling. This is the second construction stage in the
project called Parsellen, and the commission is a design and build contract
valued at NOK 145 million excluding VAT.
"We really appreciate the renewed confidence shown in us and the good
partnership we will be a part of going forward. The homes are a part of the
extensive Kvarteret project, the new neighbourhood in Lillestrøm that will
consist of around 1,000 new apartments when completed. Sustainability is
something we are concerned with, so we greatly appreciate that Parsellen aims
for certification as Very Good according to the BREEAM-NOR environmental
standard," says Kaare Gilhus of Veidekke Bygg Oslo.
Parsellen will have 136 housing society apartments from one to five rooms in
size. This commission is for building the second stage in the project comprising
two buildings of five and six storeys above ground with 15 and 37 apartments
respectively. From the underground parking facility there will be a lift to all
apartments, and the area will be free of cars.
"We have been very pleased with our cooperation with Veidekke to date and look
forward to continuing to develop Kvarteret together with them. We will ensure
that Kvarteret will be an eco-friendly neighbourhood where the buildings are
certified according to the BREEAM-NOR Very Good environmental documentation.
With energy label B, the apartments will be energy efficient, and there is the
opportunity for green mortgages in the bank if you buy a home here," says EVP
for residential development Ingunn A. Randa with OBOS.
Kvarteret is situated on the southern side of Lillestrøm and has been known as
an area with small industry and residential neighbourhoods for a number of
years. This will now change, and much will be completely rebuilt. Residents here
will have walking distance to almost all services such as shops, restaurants,
cultural offerings and public transport, while Oslo Central Station and
Gardermoen Airport are only 10-14 minutes away by train.
Construction work has already started, and completion is scheduled from December
2024. More about the project here. (https://nye.obos.no/ny
