Skien high school

Skanska Norway has signed a contract with Telemark County Council for the construction of the new Skien high school. The contract has a value of 461 million NOK before tax, and the construction starts in the autumn of this year. The school will, according to the press release, be ready in the autumn of 2018.

In June 2015, Skanska was chosen as the county’s collaboration partner to develop the new high school. The original proposal was rejected at the the county council on June 8 2016. The county council decided that if Skanska in a short time managed to deliver a revised offer within the financial envelope that the county council had set, the county council could either go for the revised offer or send the construction of the school out on a new tender, according to the press release.
On Telemark County’s website it states that the school will be built for 1,050 students, and that the financial framework is NOK 618 million (in 2013).
