“We’re looking forward to starting construction of Nye Fylkets Hus. There are not many exclusively office buildings that are built in our area, and we are therefore very pleased to be selected as contractor in partnership with Veidekke Bygg in Trondheim who have great experience with such projects. The combined expertise of the team from Grande and Veidekke in the field of environment and sustainability tipped the project in our favour, and we are really proud of that,” says general manager Morten Hynne of Grande Entreprenør.

Fylkets hus will have a central location just next to the railway station in Steinkjer. The building will comprise 7,000 m2 across eight storeys in addition to a basement and will be environmentally certified as Very Good according to the BREEAM-NOR manual v6.0 standard. Bane NOR Eiendom, Trøndelag County Municipality and Utstillingsplassen Eiendom are behind the company Steinkjer Fylkeshus AS.

“We’re looking forward to starting the first construction stage at Steinkjer station. We have great faith in a good and constructive collaboration with a competent contractor with a local foothold. It is particularly pleasing to realise projects in the difficult times we are experiencing with extraordinary price growth and supply issues,” says head of section Dag Haugdal with Bane NOR Eiendom region Midt/Nord.  

Construction work starts in March, and completion is scheduled for December 2024. This contract is included in Veidekke's order book for the first quarter of 2023.
