Veidekke ASA: To build apartments for Smedvig in Lillehammer
Smedvig Eiendom AS has signed a contract with Veidekke to build Mesnakvartalet in the centre of Lillehammer. The contract to build the 107 apartments with underground parking, in addition to renovation of existing commercial buildings, is valued at NOK 387 million excluding VAT.
Mesnakvartalet is close to the pedestrian street in the centre of Lillehammer, and is a good fit with the old wooden buildings in the area. The Mesna River runs next to the property, and it is a short distance from schools, gyms, shops, cultural activities and public transport. The homes will comprise light and pleasant 1- to 3-bedroom apartments in three different buildings up to seven storeys in height.
The residential project has been developed in close cooperation between Smedvig Eiendom, Lund + Slaatto Arkitekter and Veidekke Entreprenør. Construction starts in July/August 2018, and the project is scheduled for completion in 2020. Employment numbers on the part of Veidekke are expected to be around 30 - 35 own employees for a period of two years. There will also be significant work for local subcontractors and suppliers in connection with the contract.
