Swedish contractor Peab has been commissioned to build a new nursing home, called Tåsenhjemmet, in Oslo, Norway. The customer is Oslobygg KF and the contract is worth $51.3m (NOK 446 million).
The turnkey contract comprises four floors with 130 private rooms and a daycare centre built in solid wood along with a basement. The gross area will be slightly more than 14,000 sq m.
The new Tåsenhjemmet will be environmentally certified according to BREEAM Excellent and a zero emissions building. The project will also be a so-called FutureBuilt project that promotes climate neutral city development in the Oslo region.
“Tåsenhjemmet is a prestigious project for Peab. We’re proud to build this building that is so important for the residents, their families and the employees. We are also positive to the tough environmental demands placed on us by Oslobygg since they both contribute to a lower climate impact and provide Peab with valuable experience in our work to achieve our own climate goals,” said Kjetil Runningen, Peab’s region manager.
The project is expected to start in January 2022 and the home should be ready for handover in November 2023.
The project will be order registered in the fourth quarter 2021.
