Christmas presents for charitable purposes

Brekke & Strand Akustikk AS and AB have chosen to donate money for charitable purposes this year, rather than giving Christmas gifts to their employees.

All our colleagues suggested an organization they wanted to support and this year the choice fell on the Children’s Cancer Association (Barnekreftforeningen) and the Children’s Cancer Foundation (Barncancerfonden) in Norway and Sweden.

Hopefully we will make this a tradition in the coming years.




N-building, NTNU Gjøvik

Betonmast Innlandet recently handed over the N-building at NTNU in Gjøvik to Statsbygg. The education, laboratory, workshop and office building of almost 5000 square meters was designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter, and is an important piece to handle an increasing number of students in the city center.

Project manager Reidar Søbstad in Statsbygg is pleased with the building. He believes this has been a project where it is difficult to find something that has not worked.

– In my opinion, this has been a successful project from a to z. Betonmast Innlandet has made sure that the project has been a safe journey, and we have also had a good construction agent in Norconsult. We are now sitting with a great building that scores high in the focus areas of Statsbygg, including environment and HSE, he says.

Project Manager André Skjelstad in Betonmast Innlandet is also clearly pleased with the implementation of the project. He describes the cooperation with Statsbygg as very rewarding.

– Statsbygg has a lot of expertise and they make strict demands on us as a contractor, and we like it. We feel that the strict requirements from the developer has lifted us in important areas such as HSE, Environment and Energy, he says.
