One of the largest development projects in Norway, the Økern Portal, is using Hydro’s Circal 75R aluminium as facade material in its new, innovative office building. At least 75% of the aluminium in Circal 75R is recycled metal that was previously used in other products. Mr Egil Hogna, EVP responsible for Hydro Extruded Solutions said that “Our customers in the building and construction sector are really focusing on sustainability. They want material and solutions that can help them meet their sustainability targets. With Circal 75R, we provide aluminium with a carbon footprint that fits well with the most demanding sustainability requirements.”

The Økern Portal is owned by Oslo Pensjonsforsikring, with Stema responsible for project management and Vedal Entreprenør as project lead and main contractor in a design and build contract. The project is scheduled for completion in 2021. The ambition is to create a sustainable community, offering office locations side by side with restaurants and cultural experiences.

The lead architect is Dark Arkitekter, with Staticus as facade producer.
