Sørenga in Oslo is being developed with over 100 000 m2 of new build between 2009 and 2016. As part of the Bjørvika city centre area the development must comply with strict environmental criteria within 15 different urban sustainability issues, including energy use, climate gas emissions, water, waste, materials, local climate and vegetation.

Context is the environmental coordinator for the entire Sørenga development. The work spans from establishing environmental goals and management plans for the individual projects, workshops and consultancy to the design teams, to the development of environmental indicators and requirements in tenders, as well as following up the environmental indicators throughout the construction period.

Context has also been commissioned independently as architect and building physics specialist on several projects within Sørenga.

Client: Sørenga Utvikling KS

Responsible Partner: Rolf Hagen

The gallery shows 'Sørenga 3' - a collaboration between achitecture firms Jarmund Vigsnæs Arkitekter MNAL, 4B Arkitekter AS and Context AS. Sørenga 3 was a candidate for the Oslo City Architecture prize (Oslo Bys Arkitekturpris) in 2013. This building was also featured in the Nordic Pavilion under the Venice Biennale in 2016.
