NCC has been contracted by the Norwegian Directorate of Public Construction and Property to build a new district courthouse in Tonsberg in south-eastern Norway. The order value is c. €14.7m.
The new district courthouse will cover an area of 4,715m2 and will contain 14 courtrooms, meeting rooms, waiting rooms, and office space for about 60 people.
Together with Dyrvik arkitekter, the Norwegian Directorate of Public Construction and Property and the Norwegian National Courts Administration, NCC has recently completed a seven-week phase to optimize and streamline the project before construction begins.
“We interacted very well with all parties during the planning phase, which created a solid platform for an efficient production phase. NCC handed over Drammen district court this summer, so we have an experienced and competent team that is now beginning work in Tonsberg,” said Roger Nygard, Head of NCC Building in Norway.
The building will be constructed as a passive house and meet high environmental standards. For example, all machinery used in the project will operate on electricity or biofuel, which will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions significantly compared with a conventional construction process.
Construction will begin in March 2024 and the project is scheduled to be ready for occupancy in the autumn of 2025.
