The new cultural centre will be located next to Steinkjerelva in the centre of Steinkjer and will comprise 9,000 m2, including an existing building of 1,300 m2 in Strandvegen 4 that will be renovated. The state of the art cineplex will have four cinemas from 40 to 210 seats, and the large hall of 870 m2 will be possible to use for several different activities. There will also be several smaller rooms for concerts and shows, in addition to an art gallery, restaurant and museum.  

“We are very proud of being handed the contract to build the new cultural centre. This will be an important building that will mean a lot to a large number of people in Steinkjer, and we appreciate the confidence shown in us. Construction work will be carried out by Veidekke and our subsidiary Grande Entreprenør, along with other local partners,” says district manager Ståle Brovold of Veidekke Bygg Trøndelag.

“Building the new cultural centre in Steinkjer has been planned for a long time, and it is an important project for us as the client, for all future users and for the town of Steinkjer. We are therefore looking forward to entering the next stage of the project, and to good collaboration with Veidekke and their partners,” says Ingunn Ramdal, project manager for Steinkjerbygg AS.

Now an interaction phase will start almost immediately, while construction work is scheduled to start after Easter with completion in the summer of 2023.
