Peab district manager Trygve Nilsen said: “We’re very pleased to continue our great collaboration with Harstad Municipality. Peab will make life easier for people with disabilities by building adapted housing and a daytime activity centre. This project in Harstad is very important to us.”

Construction will begin soon, with the project scheduled to be completed by April 2025.

Peab will register this contract in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Harstad Municipality project manager Raymond Knudsen was quoted by Byggeindustrien as saying: “The day centre will provide people with functional impairments with a varied range of activities in suitable premises.

“We have used Peab Bjørn Bygg on several large construction projects and know the contractor as flexible and solution-oriented, with a focus on progress and a good final product.”
