IPC delivers first East Iceland building

Iceland Prime Contractor has received an allocation of lots for 151 apartments in Bakkagerdi Place in the East Iceland town of Reydarfjördur.  In collaboration with the Fjardabyggd municipality, IPC has made changes to the previous physical plan of the neighbourhood with the aim of condensing the settlement and offering increased diversity as regards the types of homes available. 

 

According to the currently valid plans, Bakkagerdi Place will contain 55 single-family homes, 44 apartments in row houses and duplexes, and 52 apartments in multiple-family dwellings.  The apartment buildings will be 2-3 storeys tall, each containing 5 to 16 units.   In the neighbouring town of Egilsstadir, IPC has been allocated lots for 123 apartments in Votihvammur Dell.  The company has planned a diverse, sheltered residential neighbourhood lying between Eyvindará river and the current settlement.  The plan for the area calls for five clusters of buildings and twelve separate lots. 

 

The clusters will form a common central area with a playground and outdoor recreation plot, and each cluster will have its own parking lot.  Eyvindará river lies at the northern edge of Votihvammur Dell. The southern bank of the river will be fortified and rebuilt, and the riverfront area will be devoted to outdoor recreation.  Plans also call for a network of walkways that will traverse the neighbourhood and connect with the walkways in the current residential area.  

 

One playground will be located in the new neighbourhood, and it will be linked to nearby lots by means of walkways. Street and road construction are scheduled to begin this November. The new neighbourhood will contain 10 single-family homes, 41 apartments in row houses and duplexes, and 72 flats in multiple-family apartment buildings.  The multiple-family dwellings will be three storeys tall, with 12 apartments in each.
