NCC to build hotel in Oslo

| Source: NCC AB
NCC is to build a hotel that will be developed by Union Property Capital AS. The
project, Karl Johans gate 12, which will be implemented in the form of an NCC
Partnering contract, is worth SEK 250 million. The hotel will be operated by
Nordic Choice Hotels.
“This is the second hotel that we will have built in central Oslo in a short
period of time. It demonstrates our competitiveness when it comes to advanced
building and refurbishment projects,” says Håkon Tjomsland, President of NCC
Construction in Norway.

During recent years, NCC has refurbished and built the oldest part of Oslo
Central Station, Østbanehallen. Nordic Choice Hotels is also the tenant for that

The Karl Johans gate 12 building and refurbishment project comprises a property
at Kirkegata 34 and large parts of the property at Karl Johans gate 12. The two
buildings, which both date back to the 1800s, will be joined together. In total,
the project comprises 9,600 square meters of gross floor area on eight stories.
The hotel will have 181 rooms, a bar/café and a large restaurant.

During a three-month design phase, builders, a building developer, project
managers, the tenant and NCC have worked together. As a result of this design
work, the project has been further developed and a joint understanding of the
requirements, challenges and solutions has been created.

“The contract is an NCC partnering agreement, which entails close cooperation
between all parties during the entire period of construction. All of the parties
have been involved to help ensure that the quality of the end product will be as
good as possible,” says Nils Christensen, Department Manager at NCC Construction
in Norway.

Construction will comply with the Norwegian building standard, TEK 10, based on
energy-efficiency class C.
