The project involves the construction of a new elementary school and a new recreation center with, among other things, a swimming pool. In addition, Peab will renovate existing administration and school buildings. The agreement also includes demolition of existing primary school and sports hall.

"We are very happy. This contract was important to us, and we appreciate the customer's trust. Building community institutions is an important task for a company like Peab, with our vision of being the Nordic community builder," says Peab's regional manager Gro Skaar Knutsen.

The new school and rec center will be built in solid wood. The project starts immediately, and the handover takes place step by step. In August 2020 the school will be completed, in June 2021 the multi-hall will be handed over and in August 2021 the outdoor work will be completed.
