The new office will be a six-story wooden building comprising approximately 31,000 square meters with a focus on sustainability with an order value of approximately SEK880 million. Construction will commence in 2022 and the project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2025.

NCC and the Danish Building and Property Agency signed a contract back in July 2021, and financing for the project has now been approved by the Finance Committee of the Danish parliament.

Signe Primdal Lyndrup, deputy director of the Danish Building and Property Agency, said, “NCC has a strong offering and we are really looking forward to the cooperation. This is an exciting project in which we, NCC and the rest of the construction industry can gain valuable experience from and that will serve as a modern framework for government workplaces in Odense.” 

In addition to the functionality and flexibility requirements, a crucial requirement for the project was that the load-bearing structure had to be made of wood. The project will be implemented with a strong emphasis on reducing the environmental impact in connection with the actual construction work and the subsequent operation by, for example, minimising energy consumption.

Catarina Molén-Runnäs, business area manager of NCC Building Nordics, said, “NCC has constructed several buildings out of wood around the Nordic region, and that experience was crucial for this assignment. The Agency’s new office is an extremely interesting project and a milestone for the development of sustainable solutions in the Danish construction industry. We look forward to the start of construction.”
