NCC Construction AS in Norway has signed an agreement with Linstow Eiendom AS regarding the conversion of the post office property block in Oslo into apartments and commercial premises. The agreement is worth SEK 232 million (about â¬26m).
The new property block has been named âQuadraturenâ and the assignment is NCCâs largest ever refurbishment project in Norway.
The project comprises the construction of 232 high-standard apartments, which will vary in size from 36 to 120 mÂ². In addition to 11,000 mÂ² of residential space, 15,000 mÂ² of commercial premises will be built, including a fully automatic garage.
The project will be implemented in the form of a partnering agreement and work will commence on March 1, 2005. The first phase consists of the extensive demolition work required to make the site ready for the refurbishment project. The âQuadraturenâ property block is scheduled for completion in March 2007, although tenants will be able to move into the first apartments as early as August 2006.
NCC has previously built a shopping mall in Tallinn for Linstow Eiendom and is currently in the process of renovating the Verkstedhallarna shopping mall at Aker Brygge.
