Something for everyone in the built environment

Included in Trondheim's 2020 city plan objectives is becoming an internationally known Technology and Knowledge City, which University development and the built environment are a large part of. Sustainability and smart solutions are a very dominant part of the urban landscape.

Something for everyone in the built environment

Trondheim, located on the river Nidelva, has a population of 193,000, making it the third largest city in Norway.

The city was built on a series of docklands and includes an artificial harbour. The docks have been converted into residential waterfront areas, commercial and cultural spaces, and include transportation hubs.

One of the newest and most exciting projects in this field is the Powerhouse Brattørkaia, the World’s Northernmost energy-positive building, a collaboration of industry partners Entra, Skanska, ZERO, Snøhetta and Asplan Viak. The building produces over twice as much energy as it consumes daily, which is supplied to the neighbouring buildings, electric buses, cars and boats through a micro grid. The development has received the BREEAM Outstanding Certification, which is the highest possible ranking by the world’s leading sustainability assessment method, taking into consideration the environmental, social and economic performance.

Svartlamoen is an interesting experimental ecological building district, full of unique timber housing, ranging from student halls to self-built family homes. Other notable student housing projects are the Moholt Timber Towers, completed by MDH and winner of many sustainability awards, and Teknobyen by MEK Architects, winner of the Trondheim Europan 9 Award, among others.

Trondheim is also known for its wonderful level of local cuisine, as well as historically notable vernacular waterside warehouses.
