Caverion has signed a contract with the general contractor Skanska AS to deliver Total Technical Solutions covering all building systems for a new office building in the Norwegian Maritime Competence Center in Ålesund, Norway. The delivery includes the disciplines of Heating and Sanitation, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Electricity, Cooling, Automation, Information and Communication Services, and Security. In addition to Project Execution, Caverion is responsible for the Advisory Services, Design & Engineering and Project Management. The value of the contract is approximately EUR 5.3 million.
Caverion’s own patented solution, ClimaCeil, will be installed in the building. The solution, which ensures a good indoor climate in an energy efficient manner, 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 alterations that may occur during a building’s life cycle.
The new building, NMK2, which is an extension to an existing business park, will include 15,000 square meters over seven floors, and a basement with parking. NMK2 will be connected to a district heating network, which will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The building will only use 115 kWh per square meter per year.
“We have a good cooperation with Caverion, and are both working together to deliver the best possible building for the end client,” says Roar Alstad, Project Manager at Skanska.
“We are excited to put our expertise in Life Cycle Solutions to use in such an exciting project, where modern technical solutions will ensure that the environmental impact will be minimised,” says Knut Gaaserud, Executive Vice President & CEO division Denmark-Norway of Caverion.
Caverion’s delivery will be completed in October 2017.
Skanska belongs to Caverion’s general contractor client segment.
