Nordic construction company NCC has secured a SEK 900 mln (€80 mln) contract to build a new head office for Danish state-owned energy company Energinet.
The new office will be located outside Fredericia on Denmark's Jutland peninsula, adjacent to Energinet's existing offices.
The 27,000 m2 building will more than double the size of the existing headquarters and house 900 workspaces as well as conference rooms. It will feature an open design similar to the current building, with an atrium as a central gathering place, a canteen, access to courtyards, and a furnished terrace.
Catarina Molén-Runnäs, head of NCC buildings Nordics, said: ‘NCC, in partnership with architects and advisers, has produced a well thought-out and detailed proposal for a modern and efficient office building that will seamlessly connect with the existing office. It is gratifying that Energinet chose our solution and we look forward to constructing this solid building.’
Marianne Hansen, member of the evaluation committee and director of group finance and business support at Energinet, added: ‘We are looking forward to moving into a responsibly constructed building where sustainability is measurable and felt in everyday life. We are also excited to have enough space for our growing team of skilled employees who will contribute to Denmark's green transition.’
Sustainability will be a key focus, with sustainable construction materials, including wood floors and pillars, contributing to a comfortable indoor climate.
NCC's experience from projects like the WoodHub office in Odense will be incorporated into the construction.
To further solidify its commitment to sustainability, the building will be certified under the DGNB Gold standard.
The project team also includes C.F. Møller Architects and Artelia, who will be responsible for the concept and drawings.
Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2024 and be completed by 2026.
