Steel frame for exceptional building

The new headquarters of financial services group DnB NOR in downtown Oslo, has an exceptional appearance as a result of their honeycombed and multi-portal structures.

The structure of the frame was designed by Ruukki in close cooperation with Spenncon. Ruukki was responsible for the structural design, manufacture, installation and fire protection of the steel frame. Furthermore, the project was the first Norwegian one to utilise Ruukki’s large-diameter RD piles that are installed by drilling.

“In this architecturally diverse 17-story building, the compatibility of the steel frame with other structures places special demands on the design of the steel frame structures. We have every confidence in Ruukki’s ability to manage demanding projects such as this one” – Project Manager Øystein O. Ylvisåker, representative for the customer, Oslos S Utvikling AS.
