Housing development in Bjørvika
Bjørvika used to be a traffic machine. Now much of the traffic has been removed and replaced with a new and green neighbourhood on the seafront. Together with OSU, AF Gruppen has carried out several of the projects in Bispevika. (Photo: Oslo S Utvikling).

OSU thinks along new lines
Bjørvika used to be a traffic machine. Now much of the traffic has been lead underground, the concrete machine has been demolished, and a new and green neighbourhood has been developed.
When OSU was planning the development of Bispevika in Bjørvika, the largest and most recognised contractors in the industry were invited to put forward proposals for how the area best could be realised through industrialisation, digitisation, interaction, planning processes and contract structures that could provide good solutions and major reductions in construction costs.
No residual waste
In Bispevika, AF has collaborated with Norsk Gjenvinning to carry out two major
housing projects completely without residual waste. Practical systems have been established for sorting of waste, and both employees and subcontractors have been
trained to enhance their competence and awareness related to waste sorting. This high ambition resulted in 97.3 per cent of the building waste in the project being sorted for recycling – far above the regulatory requirement of 60 per cent.
