      A boost for Grimstad

      A new public library is being built in the centre of Grimstad. It will open in December 2017. 

      The new library joins the old premises to a new extension on of the city's finest plots of land. New park areas will be established around the library and, together, the project will provide a big boost to the city of Grimstad. 

      In the project, AF has demolished and removed old, heavy structures and replaced them with modern and more environmentally friendly solutions.
