The Norwegian Properties Group celebrated 10 years in Pattaya with a party at its VN Residence 2 condominium on Pratamnak Soi 5.
Gudmund Eiksund, managing director, hosted the Feb. 28 thank-you party for more than 200 customers and community leaders.
In his welcome speech, Eiksund said that his company did more than survive, “We also grew … and today we are well prepared to face the future.”
He said the company began with the construction of a small housing development with just nine homes and a pool. The 25 million baht project ended up costing 35 million baht. No money was made, but experience was gained.

The second project – Villa Norway 2 – was a success. It was followed by the VN Residence 1 with 20 apartments, then VN Residence 2.
He said the company’s next project will be a “five-star condominium” called 5th Avenue on Pratamnak Soi 4.
“This is for us is a big project with 10,000 sq. meters of land, consisting of 73 apartments from 50-300 sq. meters,” Eiksund said.
He thanked all the residents, employees and suppliers, as well as friends and supporters.
Norwegian Properties Group was established in 2004 by a family of Norwegian property specialists. Their goal was to supply a number of quality walk-up condominiums in Pattaya at reasonable costs.
