Veidekke: Building more homes at Jarlsø in Tønsberg

Veidekke has signed yet another agreement with Jarlsø Eiendom – this time to build 33 apartments and associated underground parking as part of the Jarlsø Fjordpark project in the municipality of Tønsberg. The contract is a design and build contract valued at NOK 112 million excluding VAT.

“We are very grateful for the commission and for the fresh vote of confidence from Jarlsø Eiendom. The fjordpark, situated in the middle of the island of Jarlsø, will be the third project we have worked on together in recent years. Good architecture and quality combined with the unique location have helped make the island an attractive residential area for many,” says Lars N. Hjertås, District Manager at Veidekke Bygg Vestfold og Telemark.

Jarlsø Eiendom has been working to develop the residential area on the island of Jarlsø not far from Tønsberg for a number of years. Thanks to the immediate proximity of the fjord, residents can benefit from the archipelago and sea in their own back yard. Following the construction of the bridge that saw the island become accessible to the public, work began in 2007, and to date some 318 apartments have been completed. The Fjordparken project comprises 33 apartments ranging from 53m2 to 160m2 in area, as well as underground car parking, communal roof terraces, spa facilities and a fitness room.

“We are delighted to be continuing the development of Jarlsø in partnership with Veidekke. We are well aware of what matters to our customers, and we are pleased to have been able to offer that in this project which has been very well received by the market,” says Stian Røed of Jarlsø Eiendom.

The key to realising the project in a period of rising construction costs has been the excellent cooperation between Jarlsø Eiendom, KB arkitekter and Veidekke. Together, they have found solutions that combine to accommodate the needs of apartment buyers, ensure the design remains appealing, and that there is a good construction process in place.

Construction work has already started and handover is due by the end of 2024. More information on the project is available at https://jarlsoe.no/
