Swedish contractor Skanska has signed a contract with the southwestern Norwegian municipality of Stavanger for construction of a municipal town centre for the Storhaug district.

The 26,000 sq m Lervik Quarter will include a primary school, kindergarten, multi-purpose hall, a district service center, grocery store, offices and parking facilities.

The building will be constructed using solid wood, and the work will be undertaken at a fossil-free site, with the project aiming to achieve BREEAM Norway’s “very good” certification.

Work on the $85m project is due to begin in May and be completed before 2025.
