Statnett and Veidekke have completed an interaction phase to develop the project that now has been forwarded to execution. The administration building at Sunndalsøra is around 3,300 m2 in size and has been developed in five construction stages in the period from 1978 to 2008. Both building and technical standards are from the relevant years of construction, with some minor upgrades along the way.

The building’s technical standard fails to meet current regulatory requirements, including requirements to energy efficiency, air quality, universal design and external security measures. Furthermore, space efficiency and flexibility in the building is considered to be low as a result of the building’s staggered construction stages and extensive use of cubicles. Surfaces, windows and roofing are characterised by wear and have significantly exceeded their life expectancy.

The buildings will be redeveloped such that they meet Statnett’s future needs, and will be completely renovated to meet current requirements and standards (TEK 17).

Construction starts in February and is scheduled for completion in mid-2024. The commission is included in Veidekke’s order book for the fourth quarter of 2022.
