BAM to build school on Carlsberg site

18 Nov 15 BAM Danmark has been appointed for the design and construction of the new European School in Copenhagen.

Danish brewer Carlsberg owns the site, which is being completely redeveloped. The project has a contract value of over €40m (£28m) and the client is developer Carlsberg Byen.

The former Carlsberg brewery complex is situated close to Copenhagen’s city centre. Carlsberg moved its beer production to Jutland in 2008, except for Jacobsen House Brewery, where special beers are brewed.

The 30ha area is being redeveloped into Carlsberg City, based on a masterplan by the Danish architecture agency Entasis. Historic buildings are being preserved in the new district, which is also providing houses, shops, cultural and facilities, offices and an educational campus with a new railway station.

The European School will have seven storeys, including two underground floors, with a total area of 14,000m2. The building will accommodate 900 students, divided into primary and secondary education, and includes teaching and practice rooms, an auditorium, a sports hall and other facilities. The two-floor basement has 270 parking spaces and extends below an adjacent parcel, where another building wil be developed.

BAM Danmark expects to hand over the project to the city of Copenhagen in August 2018.
