DEVELOPMENT OF OSlOFJORD CONVENTION CENTER

Extensive development will be taking place at the Oslofjord Convention Center up until 2021, and Oslofjord Property is the project builder. The Brunstad Foundation, as site owner, follows the ongoing construction project with great interest.

The architects Niels Torp won the architectural competition with their “Sun, wind and stars” proposal, and this shaped plans for a hotel city, a new and an environmentally friendly infrastructure, underground parking, and beautiful open park areas.

The project includes:

  • 16 new hotel buildings (1600 suites)     
  • Activity facilities and outdoor activity park, totaling 17 000 m2     
  • Swimming facilities that also include training facilities and indoor playgrounds, totaling 5 000 m2     
  • Extensive work with outdoor areas and the construction of new park facilities     
  • Underground parking with 1 500 parking places.
  • Upgrading of existing Conference Center     
  • Technical infrastructure and roads 
  • Priority-based projects for the Municipality     
  • Total investment: 3.7 BNOK.
  • Construction of bathing area with beach, pier, freshwater showers, toilets and parks at Rossnessodden  
  • Construction of coastal trail along the whole of Olsåsen and up to Brunstadveien where it connects to the trail network at Trælsodden     
  • Construction of a hiking and cycle path from RV 303 towards the coastal trail    
  • Improved crossing at RV 303 and at Sjuestokveien     
  • Expanded Skjærsnesveien
  • Extensive excavation to replace many components in the municipal sewage system. Just over 4 kilometers of new main drainage pipeline has been laid in the ground, as well as a completely new pumping station that ensures that the waste water is transferred to Vårnes treatment plant. This is good news for the environment – and for swimmers in Melsomvik.
