Document Details:

The Veitvet School project is being built as a PPP and consists of a new elementary and middle school for grades 1 to 10, including a multi-use hall. The private partner (Skanska) will develop, construct and take care of maintenance the next 25 years, and has signed a contract with the Oslo municipality for leasing the school over the same period, with a possible prolongation. The Veivet School project follows a low carbon strategy and seeks to achieve a minimum of 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to a conventional building of today´s standard. The location of Veitvet School is favourable with respect to low greenhouse gas emissions from transport (proximity to public transport). Other low carbon features are proximity to public transport, limited parking places and reserved parking for electric cars with charging points, good facilities for the use of bicycles, as well as a careful selection of robust materials based on their greenhouse gas emissions.
