13/03-2018 19:23:40: (VEI) Veidekke to build Levre School in Bærum
Bærum Municipality has awarded Veidekke the contract to build the new Levre
Primary School. The contract was won in a price and design competition with a
subsequent collaboration phase. The turnkey contract is worth NOK 236 million
The new Levre School is being built for four parallel classes per year group,
and will be prepared for future expansion in order to accommodate growth in the
municipality. Rooms and spaces have been designed with multiple uses in mind,
which will provide flexibility for different teaching methods. In addition to
the bright and modern teaching facilities, the school is also designed to be a
good local community facility. The sports hall, assembly hall, serving kitchen,
music room, rehearsal space etc. are located to be easily accessible from the
foyer outside of school hours. The outdoor spaces are designed to stimulate
activity, learning and social gathering, well-suited to events and recreation
for the local community.
The project has clear environmental ambitions. A solar cell installation will be
integrated with the facade on parts of the building, and district heating will
be used for drying and heating during the construction period. In collaboration
with the municipality, a new tool for the monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions
during the construction project will be tested. This will enable the most
environmentally friendly selection of materials and solutions.
- Throughout the collaboration period, the project is being further developed in
close collaboration with Bærum Municipality. The project group has worked
closely with both the client and the school to ensure that the school and
outdoor areas are in line with the wishes, needs and requirements of the
customer and users. Building good educational facilities with clear
environmental ambitions is something that we place great value in, says Erik
Økland, head of the department for public buildings. We thank Bærum Municipality
for the trust, the good collaboration so far, and we look forward to getting
started with this exciting project, concludes Økland.
Demolition of the old Levre School started in February, and the construction of
the new school starts at the beginning of May 2018. The handover to Bærum
Municipality is in May 2020. Veidekke will then operate and maintain the school
for five years.
