Industrial building – Fortum Oslo Varme
- Investor: Fortum Oslo Varme AS
- Main contractor: BundeBygg AS
- Architectural design: Arkitektene Astrup og Hellern
Fortum Oslo Varme is the owner and operator of the district heating network in the City of Oslo, Norway. The company has a total of 11 heating plants, one of which is in the Haradsrud district of Oslo. A new administrative building was completed next to the existing heating plant in 2018. Ruukki supplied the Ruukki Design Cor-Ten S7 façade profiles for the building. The scope of order also included support for installation and detail planning.
”We wanted the new building to both enhance the appearance of the production facilities and to blend in well with the existing buildings in the vicinity,” says Jan Morten Trønnes, head of production at Fortum Oslo Varme.
“We chose Cor-Ten because of its natural color, the façade is also easy to care for. Now all the buildings on the site have their own character and at the same time create a pleasant combination,” explains Åke Letting, from architects Astrup og Helleren, who designed the building.
