Veitvet School is an elementary school situated in Bjerke, around 6 km northeast of central Oslo. Prior to the project, the existing 1950s school was not optimal for modern teaching, was energy inefficient and could not meet the demand for school places in the neighborhood, with space for around 500 students. An entirely new school was built adjacent to the old building that provides modern learning facilities for up to 840 pupils from grade 1 to grade 10. The school accommodates 80 teachers.
Skanska won a competition overseen by the Norwegian government program FutureBuilt to finance, develop, build and maintain the Veitvet School over a 25-year period as part of a PPP. Oslo municipality has agreed to lease the school over this period with the option of extending the contract with Skanska for a further 15 years until 2055. The Veitvet School is one of 50 FutureBuilt pilot projects aimed at minimizing lifecycle carbon emissions from energy, materials and transport, as well as promoting healthy cities. lasix tablet usage
The US$ 44 million newly built school consists of 11,424 m2 of floor space in total, including three different wings of the main school for different age groups, a 2,000 m2 multi-purpose hall and a 400 m2 club house. The school includes an auditorium, library, and various classrooms, some with specialist facilities, such as for music, ceramics and woodwork. Veitvet School has over 30,000 m2 of grounds and the project has retained and enhanced green spaces and sports facilities for athletics, basketball and tennis. The new school was ready for the start of the 2015 school term in August, and the old school was demolished shortly after.
As Skanska was involved from the outset and will maintain the school over the long-term, energy efficiency and indoor environment have been in focus from the very start of project planning. The project received a US$ 400,000 passive house grant from Enova, which is a government company that promotes energy efficiency and renewable energy. Veitvet School was designed to BREEAM-NOR Very Good certification. BREEAM is a voluntary green building measurement rating that was established by the Building Research Establishment in the UK. indian brand names of viagra
