Veidekke to construct terminal building at Trondheim Central Station in Norway


Veidekke has secured a contract from Bane NOR Eiendom for building a new terminal building and office block at Trondheim Central Station in Norway.

The buildings will be certified as per the BREEAM-NOR Excellent environmental standard.

This design and build contract comes with a total value of NOK722m without including VAT. It is being included in the company's order backlog for Q1 2022.

Veidekke Bygg Trøndelag regional director Torgeir Wiig said: “We are incredibly grateful to Bane NOR Eiendom for this exciting commission. Together with the client, consultants and subcontractors, we have come through a very good development phase that will guarantee a superb building and construction process. We are now looking forward to getting to work on the detailed design after the summer holidays, and starting construction in 2023.”

Across eight storeys, the new Trondheim Central Station will feature a total floor area of 17,500m2.

The terminal building will feature approximately 4,500m2, while some 13,000m2 will serve as office space.

It will be located above the tracks, and its construction process will not hamper the train services.

The parts of the building that will span the rails will be constructed on a modular basis, thereby enabling quick assembly on site.

The building across the tracks will offer a link between the city centre and the port.

Its design has considered several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Bane NOR Eiendom project director Arne Hognestad said: “Together with Veidekke, we have developed a proud that we are proud of. This is a demanding project that must be planned rigorously to ensure that trains can continue to operate as normal and that passengers are not impeded during the construction phase. We are very pleased with the support and expertise that Veidekke has provided us with to date, and we are looking forward to pursuing this project together with them.”

Construction work will commence in January next year, and the building is slated for completion by November 2025.
