Norway’s national stadium and home of Vaalerenga IF will soon go through its last redevelopment phase. Works worth NOK 180 million (€24 million, $32 million) are to be carried out by Veidekke ASA with first ones expected already in October. The stadium should be ready within one year.

Capacity increase won’t be a large one with the stadium receiving just 3,000 seats on the west stand’s new 2nd tier. But infrastructure behind it will be more impressive – 2 floors are to be added to the already 4-floor structure. 5th floor will have 160 office workspaces and the next one a significant VIP zone and conference/banqueting halls.

The new steel structure of the roof is to weigh some 800 tons and will be of the same height as other stand covers.
