Head of Property Development Norge, NCC Property Development
We are developing office space totaling 60,000 m2 in Valle Hovin. The five buildings will have very good exposure towards the motorway E6, plus a central location in Oslo close to the public transport hub of Helsfyr.
Valle Wood was the first phase of the project. This was at the time of completion Norway's largest commercial building in cross laminated timber! The material choice gives a natural Nordic feel that establishes an identity for the building itself and the surrounding area.
Work started in 2017, and Valle Wood was completed in the summer of 2019. Inside Valle Wood you will find a with space for co-working and start-ups, plus meeting rooms, conference facilities and various catering and service provision.
The facilities in Valle Wood, combined with the experiences at the stadium and new housing, not to mention a delightful outdoor space in the square, will make Valle attractive for both business and leisure.
The building will stand adjacent to the new football stadium for Oslo club Vålerenga, which was completed in the fall of 2017. Along with new housing in the area, this makes Valle an exciting new destination with a great buzz and a high level of activity.
Whether you come at it from the east, west, north or south, the routes to Valle are numerous and not particularly long. It is barely 500 meters from Helsfyr, where you will find one of Oslo's largest public transport hubs, with buses, metro and airport buses.
If you choose to cycle to work, a fantastic new cycle path runs right past, and Valle will has modern cycle parking indoors. Valle has everything in place for a flexible and easy working day.
The buildings will be certified in accordance with BREEAM, the world's most demanding environmental certification system, which takes a holistic view of the building's entire ecocycle.
Tenants who choose an eco-certified office show that they are taking responsibility for sustainable development. Environmental consideration also has a positive impact on profitability in the form of lower energy costs, a strong brand and healthy, happy employees.
Efficient premises mean lower costs per employee, less of an impact on the environment and lower consumption of energy and resources. Valle has flexible buildings with many options to adapt the premises to the needs of the business, in terms of size, content and layout. The buildings and floors can easily be divided up for multiple tenants. In an age that demands a capacity for rapid restructuring, it is important that the office space is also open to change.
The considerable flexibility of the spaces allows room for reorganization and future growth or a reduction in the number of employees. The ability to influence the design of your own premises makes it easier to create an environment that allows space for the personal growth of each individual employee. What will the workplace of the future look like for your business? That is something we can discover together.
