A worn and not very functional school and an increased demand for school places, made it most expedient to build a new elementary school in Nordstrand in Oslo.
The old school from 1959, which was extended several times over the years, was laid across the hilly site which is characterized by steep peaks.
– Increased population growth and a very poor condition was behind the decision to build a new school, where LCC-analysis formed the basis for the decision on demolishing and rebuilding. The new school can accommodate 840 students, approximately 200 more than at the old school, says project manager Nina Rønning in Undervisningsbygg Oslo KF.
