Advansia, part of AFRY, has signed an advisory contract with The Norwegian public broadcaster NRK for the development of their new headquarters in Oslo. The vision for the new headquarters is to develop a creative world-class media house.

The assignment includes the delivery of project management and support, user involvement and, through the architects of AFRY Ark Studio, room and function program. Advansia offers advisory services within project management, digitalization, and security, and has been responsible for leading the execution of many of Norway’s largest and most complex projects.

"We evaluated proposals from four highly competent consultancy teams based on three award criteria. Advansia's team was overall assessed as the best candidate. The team is highly competent and solution-oriented, and they complement each other very well," says Andreas Norvik, CFO of NRK.

Christopher Klepsland, Country Manager for AFRY in Norway and CEO of Advansia, believes this is one of the most prestigious assignments in 2024.

"We are passionate about projects that allow us to utilize our full range of expertise. It is particularly motivating when they carry such significant importance for society. At Advansia, we are at our best when working on large and complex projects, contributing to something meaningful for the entire nation," says Klepsland.

The new headquarters is a pioneering project for sustainability, aligning with NRK's aim to halve its climate footprint by 2030. The headquarters will be an arena for interaction, offering an open and inclusive environment for staff, guests, and the wider community. Additionally, robust security measures will be implemented to uphold NRK's preparedness obligations.

"We are excited to collaborate with Advansia in realizing our vision of developing a creative world-class media house," says Norvik.

The contract covers the programming and pre-project phase, with an option for the implementation phase. The order value for Advansia is not disclosed.
