“We are both pleased and proud to have won the competition and are grateful for the commission. Building good schools is one of the most important things we can do, and I am certain that the new Krødsherad school will be of great benefit to students, teachers and other users of the school,” says district manager Gro Brathovde with Veidekke Bygg Buskerud.

The school is being built for 320 pupils from the first to tenth grades. The first to fourth grades will be gathered around a common area on the ground floor, while the fifth to tenth grades will be located on the second level. The building will have good environmental qualities with energi class A, extensive use of wood and with the opportunity for solar panels on the roof. In addition to flexible teaching rooms, the new school will accommodate a multipurpose hall, offices and library. The new school will also be connected to the municipality building and swimming pool, and the old school will be demolished.

The final details of the project will now be further developed in an interaction phase between Krødsherad municipality, Veidekke and MDH Arkitekter. Construction is scheduled to start just before Easter with inauguration at the start of the school year in 2025.
