Scandic Hotels has signed an agreement for a new hotel in Ski outside of Oslo in Norway. The property is expected to open its door in 2026.
The new hotel will be centrally located beside the train station and with 15 floors, it will be a new landmark in the city. It will feature 200 rooms as well as meeting facilities and a rooftop bar with panoramic views of the city.
According to Scandic’s state of mind, the rooms will be designed with circularity in mind and parts of the room interiors will be environmentally certified or made from recycled materials, most of which can be reused or recycled during renovations.
Furthermore, the hotel will also be constructed according to a high environmental and technical standard with the goal to be certified according to BREEM Excellent, one of the highest levels in environmental certification for buildings.
Sustainability is at the heart of every Scandic Hotels project, and this new one is no exception to the rule. Soon as it will be open, it will be ecolabeled according to the Nordic Ecolabel’s new, tougher environmental requirements.
We are very happy to have had this opportunity to open a new Scandic hotel in Ski. This agreement will strengthen our position in the region surrounding Oslo, which is undergoing rapid development, and at the same time create an exciting new meeting place for people who live and work in the city.
Asle Prestegard, Head of Scandic Hotels Norway
We see great potential for hotels at public transport hubs. Together with Scandic, we are developing a hotel property that will have a high environmental performance and we’re extremely happy that Ski is being added to the list of cities where we’re establishing hotels.
