Sørild Friidretsklubb (Sørild Athletics club) and JBU have been working together since 2013 to establish an indoor athletics hall with multipurpose facilities situated on Campus Grimstad.

The hall is a multipurpose hall comprising of ca. 5300 m2 with emphasis on spaces for all athletic disciplines but also suitable for ball sports and other forms of sports in the middle area (multipurpose court). A service area will also be established with club facilities, social room, changing room and other facilities. The hall will have seating for approximately 600 spectators and it will be possible to arrange competitions in athletics.

As the only hall of its kind between Sandnes and Bærum, the project will be a lift for athletics in the entire region. contributing in the establishment of such a sports facility locally is consistent with JBU’s vision “Pride in development” and the company’s long-term engagement for the development of the Campus area in Grimstad.

One of the core factors that makes this project is that the surrounding public authorities (the municipalities of Grimstad, Arendal and Kristiansand along with the County councils of East and West Agder) have chosen to support the project with financial contribution. Further costs shall be financed through lottery funds, program investment funds, equity, bank loan and contributions from industry.

Current status:

  • Sørild Friidretsklubb shall own and operate the hall

  • J.B. Ugland Eiendomsutvikling has deen the developer of the project in tight partnership with Sørild.

  • J.B. Ugland Entreprenør shall have project management in conjunction with the construction on behalf of the client Sørild.

  • Detailed zoning plans for the plot have been submitted for municipal processing

  • Final preparations are ongoing for the planned construction start, April 2016
