3stepIT Norway expands to new premises with a focus on sustainability
APRIL 2021, OSLO, NORWAY: 3stepIT is growing and has collaborated with Höegh Eiendom, a green real estate development company, to open an environmentally conscious refurbishing centre in Ski, Norway.
The new facilities support our continuous growth – sustainably. We will be finding environmentally friendly solutions to completely renovate the 3,600 sqm premises for long-term use. We are already residents of Ski and are looking forward to making a further positive contribution to the area’s business park.
"We are very pleased with the green and future-oriented agreement with Höegh Eiendom. We look forward to contributing to the process of converting the warehouse building in Glynitveien into multi-function premises fit for our business." says Peer William Velde, Country Manager of 3stepIT Norway.
We share a passion for sustainable development with Höegh Eiendom and improving our facilities is an ongoing priority. The hands-on process to renovate and reuse this building gives us many opportunities for upgrades. For example, our current facilities in Ski are already powered by 100% green electricity and together with Höegh Eiendom, we have planned a large solar plant that will help us take a step further in our new location.
The renovated refurbishing centre is set to open in August of 2021 and is a crucial extension to our office in Oslo, which we also lease from Höegh Eiendom.
”It is very positive that 3stepIT wants to continue the good cooperation in both Oslo and Ski. The project we are going to carry out together is completely in line with our commitment to sustainability, where we want to develop the buildings we already have and adapt them to new functions." says Thea Martine Blyverket, Rental Manager at Höegh Eiendom.
