Veidekke: Building homes for Bonava in Vestby

Bonava has commissioned Veidekke to build 92 apartments in the Gartneritaket residential housing project in Vestby municipality. The contract is a design and build contract valued at NOK 250 million excluding VAT. This represents the first phase of construction in a major project that will see almost 500 Nordic eco-labelled homes built over the coming years.

“We are delighted and proud that Bonava has selected Veidekke for this sustainable and exciting housing project. We particularly appreciate every opportunity we are given to build eco-labelled homes. We are the biggest housebuilder in Eastern Norway, so kind of major project is exactly what we want to be doing. We are so grateful for the vote of confidence and look forward to a cracking partnership with Bonava,” says Head of Department Kaare Gilhus of Veidekke Bygg Oslo.

Gartneritaket will be one of the biggest independent housing projects in Vestby. Its location is very central, meaning that schools, kindergartens, the Vestby Storsenter mall and the railway station are all on the doorstep. Apartments in the first phase of construction will range from 24-114 m2 in size. The rooftop garden incorporated into the project will serve as a meeting place for residents, providing them with outdoor living space, kitchen areas with long tables and greenhouses, as well as small park areas with fruit trees located both on the roof and in the ground-level surroundings to ensure the best possible living environment.

“We are thrilled to have on board a professionally adept and competent contractor in the form of Veidekke to build on our behalf. We are receiving inquiries on a daily basis from buyers who want to buy flats in Gartneritaket. Vestby is, without doubt, a highly popular area that will grow a lot in the years ahead, in addition to offering more affordable property prices than Oslo. We are now both looking forward to seeing Veidekke’s excavators on site with us,” says Matilda Vinje, Bonava Regional Director.

Start of construction is scheduled for August with handover of the first phase slated for summer 2024. See more about the project here.
