MT Højgaard has constructed the AARhus housing project, designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group. We were responsible for the overall project management, pricing, design and execution. The project, which involved the building of 20 storeys, was challenging, because the design incorprates more than just standard elements and steel. We have paid particular attention to detailed planning and in terms of the concrete casting we have greatly benefitted from our in-house production.

AARhus housing project is designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group and was finished in 2019.

Homeowners had the opportunity to tailor-make their own home

Together with the client, Kilde & Mortensen, we had meetings with individual buyers where they were offered the option to choose between different types of floors, plumbing, etc. We managed this process through a self-developed tool by which we keept track of individual choices, budgets and information for craftsmen about the individual homes.

AARhus is a complex building. Therefore it comprises more than standard elements and steel.
