Veidekke: New assignment in Ålesund

Veidekke has been commissioned by Sunnmøre parkering AS to build a parking facility at Ålesund Hospital. The parking facility will have a gross area of 18,000 m2 across five floors with well over 600 parking spaces. The contract is a design and build contract valued at NOK 200 million excluding VAT.

"This is a great project in line with Ålesund Hospital’s development plan. It contributes to better conditions for users of the hospital and safeguards the universal pedestrian link between the new public transport hub along Borgundvegen to the hospital's main entrance. And we are of course happy to get to know a new customer and look forward to the partnership," says district manager Stig Mork of Veidekke Bygg Møre og Romsdal.

The building’s main structure will consist of columns and slabs made of low-carbon concrete elements. These are supplied by Veidekke Prefab, which recently won Veidekke's Scandinavian environmental award for supplying the most climate-friendly concrete products as standard. The façade is of perforated steel sheets in combination with fields of glass and open areas with railings. The parking facility should be perceived as inviting, safe and navigable, and despite its significant volume, it will be adapted to the surrounding buildings and landscape.

"Sunnmøre Parkering is pleased to award the assignment to a forward-looking organisation such as Veidekke. Here, there has been quality at every level from the first day of the partnership, including with architect Margarida Pais Arkitektur. We are pleased that climate-friendly concrete products are used as standard in the parking facility. We are also pleased with the technical solutions that will be used in the building, and look forward to opening it for use in two years,” says general manager Roar Salen of Sunnmøre Parkering.

Construction work is set to start in February 2024 with completion scheduled for November 2025. The commission is included in Veidekke’s order book for the fourth quarter.
