Oslo municipality has demolished the current nursing home in the Nordstrand district and is building a new one that is planned to accommodate 130 residents and a day centre for visitors. One of the main goals of Omsorgsbygg is to build, operate and manage environmentally friendly buildings with a world-class indoor climate. With that as a backdrop, Lambertseterhjemmet will be built with an emission-free construction site, with the goal of becoming an energy-positive building, as well as being environmentally certified to a minimum BREEAM-NOR Excellent. Degree of Freedom has the role of structural engineers throughout all phases of the project.
The project includes the construction of a new nursing home that will house 130 living spaces spread over 4-6 floors, and a day centre with complete outdoor deliveries and infrastructure aimed for visitors and the local community.
The Lambertseter nursing home will be adapted for small residential groups in a clear physical environment with a large degree of social activity. The project will create attractive and user-friendly outdoor areas that can be enjoyed by the residents, including roof areas that can be used for recreation and management of rainwater and production of renewable energy. There is a sensory garden on the ground floor, as well as outdoor and living areas on each floor. In addition, two square outdoor areas will be established.
The nursing home has been designed and is being built in accordance with the municipality’s environmental ambitions, including an energy-positive building, BREEAM-NOR Excellent and a fossil-free construction site).
The construction started in 2020 and is aimed to be completed in 2022.
