Caverion has signed a contract with general contractor Skanska Husfabrikken AS to install all building systems, including heating and sanitation, ventilation and air conditioning, electricity, ICT, security and automation systems for a temporary school building in Bergen, Norway. The value of the project is approximately EUR 2 million and it covers design and engineering, project management and execution. The work on site is already underway and will be completed in July 2015.
The total surface area of the new building is 5, 000 m2 and will accommodate 400 students. The project is complex as it is a modular construction, to be produced in Steinkjer and transported to Bergen by ship. With good project management know-how Caverion is able to complete the work within a short time frame. Caverion’s production will take place partly at the factory and in part at the construction site.
The building, to be situated at the Lynghaug Middle School, will stand for 10–15 years. It will serve as a replacement for several schools in Bergen area when permanent school buildings are being renovated due to problems with the indoor air quality.
Bergen Municipality, real estate developer, wanted Caverion’s own patented ClimaCeil for the project.
“ClimaCeil will raise the quality of the building and ensure a good indoor environment for the students,” says Project Manager Geir Garlid of Bergen Municipality.
ClimaCeil gathers technical installations in one place, including ventilation, electrical and ICT cables, sprinklers and pipes. Moreover, ClimaCeil can easily be adapted to construction modules, meaning substantial savings on building costs.
