“We are very pleased to extend our good cooperation with GC Rieber Eiendom from the construction of hotel Viken Brygge (Moxy Bergen) which will be the nearest neighbour. The project has very high environmental ambitions, which of course is what we prefer to build. We really appreciate the commission,” says district manager Thor Småbrekke of Veidekke Bygg Bergen.

The project is called Fenderen and is uniquely located on the waterfront in the heart of Solheimsviken in Bergen. The building will be in solid wood and will have three floors and a basement totalling approximately 7,800 m2 with an energy mix of solar cells, electricity, district heating and seawater. The design and choice of material have been made to ensure sustainability throughout the entire life of the building, from construction to the possibility of remodelling and reusing building parts upon demolition, and the building will be classified in accordance with the BREEAM Outstanding (Paris Proof) standard.

- Fenderen is the third solid wood building for GC Rieber Eiendom and is being built in the innovation district in Solheimsviken. We see it as an important part of our social mission to bring together actors from academia, service providers, business clusters, public administration and start-ups, and create good working conditions and meeting places for the employees, says managing director Tor Instanes of CG Rieber Eiendom.

The start-up of the construction and groundworks is planned for May/June with completion scheduled for March 2026. Read more about the project here.
