Mass testing is underway after 32 people have been infected at the construction site of Petter Stordalen’s new hotel in Oslo.
“The last thing I have information about is that there are 32 confirmed infection cases, but there may be more.
“Mass testing is now underway in all the companies involved where the infection has been proven,” communications manager Grete Sivertsen in Aspelin Ramm told Børsen.
Aspelin Ramm and Stordalen-owned Strawberry Brothers own the building, with 50% each.
On a daily basis, about 250 workers work on the construction site.
The work continues
Project manager Erik Tveit in Hent (the main contractor for the construction project) says the work continues with reduced staffing due to infection and quarantine.
“It is too early to say whether this will affect construction, but efforts are being made to avoid delays,” Tveit said.
The scheduled opening is September 2022.
Aspelin Ramm is also the developer of Pressens hus in Oslo, where there was a recent infection outbreak. At least 37 people at the construction site were infected at the end of January.
