NCC to construct sports arena in Oslo
The City of Oslo’s Municipal Undertaking for Culture and Sports Facilities will commission NCC to build the Nye Jordal Amfi sports arena in Oslo, Norway. The order is worth SEK 445 million.
Jordal Amfi was originally built for the Olympic Games in 1952 and is one of Norway’s most well-known sport arenas.
“We are very pleased to have been awarded the contract to construct a new sports arena in the City of Oslo, and we are looking forward to starting the project,” says Marianne Brudevold Eek, Head of Department, NCC Civil Engineering, Infrastructure in Norway.
The construction site will be CO2 neutral during the execution of the project, which is in line with NCC’s strategy of offering superior sustainable solutions.
“At NCC, we have made substantial progress in the ‘green shift’ and can offer private and public developers a number of sustainable solutions and certifications,” says Marianne Brudevold Eek.
NCC has extensive experience of building sports and cultural arenas in the Oslo area, having constructed Bislett Stadion, Oslo Spektrum and Telenor Arena, among others.
Nye Jordal Amfi will be an ice hockey arena for elite and recreational sports in Oslo, and will be designed as a modern arena for sports and public events, and also feature restaurants, cafes and conference facilities.
The order is registered in the NCC Infrastructure business area in the fourth quarter of 2016.
