WCN Editorial Team 7 Jan 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM Danmark has been awarded a design and build contract for a community school in Kødbyen by the City of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The value of the contract is approximately €37m.

The new school in Kødbyen will be delivered by BAM Danmark in collaboration with Nord Architects, BBP Arkitekter, engineering consultants Norconsult and landscape architects BOGL.

This new 12,700m2 school project at Kødbyen will consist of a community school, a sports hall and cultural and leisure facilities for local residents.

Approximately 850 students will be accommodated in this school from 2024.

The City of Copenhagen stated that the BAM's project offered balance between price and quality while also embracing the vision of ‘a school in the city - the city in the school’.

The winning design of BAM is based on a school, which will be part of the urban setting of Kødbyen.

The public will be able to access the school’s yard, while its facilities can also be used for leisure activities.

The entrance hall will be the heart of the school and will serve as an open space that connects all floors and facilities.

BAM Danmark managing director Bo Svendsen said: "We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the City of Copenhagen to develop and build a large, modern school that can bring joy and will benefit many people in the immediate area around Kødbyen.

"Together with our team of engineering and architectural consultants, we have put all our efforts into developing a project that adapts to Kødbyen's existing and distinctive architecture, while at the same time meeting the requirements for many different functions for both school and leisure use. We are of course both happy and proud that the City of Copenhagen has identified our project as a winning project."
