Lyngården, Trondheim

NCC is building the Lyngården eco-building for KLP Eiendom Trondheim at a value of NOK 205 million.

The property is being built as a Passive House with BREEAM “Very Good” certification and will be Trondheim’s first office block built to the new TEK17 regulations. Work on the 14,000 square meter project, worth NOK 205 million, began in September 2017 and is scheduled for completion in spring 2019. The market is watching this build with considerable interest. 55 percent of the offices have been leased out to tenants Schneider Electric Norge, Microchip Technology Norway and NCC.

Long client relationship

Lyngården is the third eco-building that NCC has constructed for KLP Eiendom, with the beacon of environmental development “Abels Hus” delivered to the property company in March 2017. It was clear from this project that NCC had the requisite expertise for Lyngården in Moholt. Securing this latest contract can thus be seen as a result of the particularly good relationship that NCC and KLP established in the earlier project, the form of collaboration and NCC’s approach of getting the client and other players involved in the planning phase early on.

Norway’s BREEAM specialists?

NCC is among Northern Europe’s leading construction and property companies when it comes to developing sustainable projects, and has built or is currently building a number of BREEAM-certified properties. In addition to the energy requirements set out in the TEK17 regulations, Lyngården is being planned and constructed to achieve the BREEAM standard “Very Good”. The building, which is designed as a Passive House, is also set to achieve an A grade for its energy profile.
