Confirmed start for HENT to begin construction of the New University Hospital in Narvik


HENT and the University Hospital Nord-Norge HF signed a contract one year ago for the construction of the University Hospital in Narvik. The contract was divided into two parts, a design contract and an option for construction of the project. The contract for the construction part is now formally signed and the project can thus commence. The project is a so-called Interaction Contract, which means that the project is carried out with a joint interaction organization, in which the developer (Sykehusbygg HF) and the contractor (HENT) together participates in the development of the project. The contract was already part of HENT's order book.

The project includes construction to complete interior design. In total, the building will consist of 26,860 square meters, and will be completed in the spring of 2024. The total contract value amounts to NOK 1.2 billion. The contract was already part of HENT's order book.

We are pleased that HENT can now start construction of the New University Hospital by the confirmed agreements between the parties. HENT won the contract in strong competition with other contractors and their experience from similar projects were important factors that UNN (Universitetssjukhuset Nord-Norge) took into consideration. It is also a message of strength that HENT once again wins a project for a public customer, says Peter Wallin, Chairman of HENT.
