NIRAS provides consultancy on building project comprising student and youth accommodation, penthouse flats, retail and cafés.

Eksercerpladsen on the island of Amager – the former Artillerivejens Kaserne – is one of the last undeveloped sites in Ørestaden, right next to DR Byen metro station.

Property development company CALUM A/S and housing association Samvirkende Boligselskaber are the clients of the project that includes 14,500 m2 divided into private businesses, café or convenience store on the ground floor, 252 units for student and youth accommodation and ten private penthouse flats.

In charge of all engineering services

At the same time, about 3,000 m2 of basement for private parking has to be established.

NIRAS is the design engineer for all the traditional engineering services such as electricity and plumbing, but also specialist services such as indoor climate, fire safety and occupational health and safety coordination.

According to the plan, the building should be completed by the end of 2017.
