Oslo is one of the quickest growing cities in Europe, so in addition to working with a significant backlog of rehabilitation the company also works with development of new houses and buildings, to meet different needs of the city districts.

The city of Oslo has passed an urban environmental development plan with aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 % within 2030. Buildings contribute to 40 % of the total use of energy, materials and CO2 emissions on the European level. In that context, Boligbygg as a large public building owner needs to adopt its excising apartments into more highly energy efficient, low emission buildings. Being one out of three public building companies owned by the city of Oslo, Boligbygg has a large network of building owners and thus a high potential for replicating successful results from the project. The property portfolio consists of social housing apartments, housing for elderly and housing for people with disabilities. In addition Boligbygg also provides some dwellings for youth and owns the city’s residents for priests. The primary mandate is to provide safe and proper housing to all of its residents.
