The project comprises 101,000 square meters, with the largest portion,
nearly 60,000 square meters, being a new campus for the University
College Copenhagen, UCC, which will concentrate all of its operations in
Carlsberg Byen. When completed, more than 10,000 students and 800
employees will work in the area.
In addition to the educational premises, the project comprises 6,500
square meters of retail space, 3,500 square meters of office space,
15,000 square meters of residential space and nearly 20,000 square
meters of basement space.
Carlsberg Byen will be built on Carlsberg’s former brewery area in
western Copenhagen. Plans call for a total of 567,000 square meters to
be built in the area in the coming 15 to 20 years.
"I am delighted that we will be involved in building and developing the
first phase of the Carlsberg Byen area,” says Klaus Kaae, President of
NCC Construction Danmark A/S.
NCC has longstanding experience of developing former brewery areas in
Copenhagen. From the start in 1998, NCC has been involved and developed
Tuborg’s former production area in Hellerup into a vibrant area
comprising residences, offices and stores.
"The first phase of the development of Carlsberg Byen will essentially
realize our vision of creating a vibrant city district with a mix of
stores, housing, offices and cultural operations, which will also
benefit residents and investors in 25 years’ time,” says Lars Holten,
president of the development company, Carlsberg Byen.
Project planning of Carlsberg Byen has already commenced and
construction is scheduled to start in summer 2013. The first phase of
the project is scheduled for completion at mid-2016 and the entire
project will be delivered in early 2017.
The Carlsberg Byen order will be registered in the NCC Construction
Denmark business area during the first quarter of 2013.
