Højgaard & Schultz

After a series of smaller tasks in Denmark got Højgaard & Schultz one of Europe’s largest construction tasks: construction of the port in Gdynia, Poland. The work went on for almost 10 years from 1925 to 1935, and led to many new tasks both internationally as nationally.
Doing World War II the company was involved in several different building projects in Germany and occupied Poland, where the workforce were concentration camp prisoners and other forced labor. Højgaard & Schultz established fund in 2002 with three million us $ to the compensation to the survivors of forced labour.
In 1952 Danish Arctic Contractors, which today is known as Greenland Contractors, created as a partnership of 7 construction companies, Monberg Thorsen and Højgaard & Schultz represented the two. The work was mainly concentrated around the Thule base in Greenland.
Højgaard & Schultz was also contractor of the northern high-rises on Bellahøj, who stood ready to move in the same year. Bellahøj was among the first element construction in Denmark.
In the years 1980-84 Monberg Thorsen and Højgaard & Schultz in cooperation built Farø bridges, consisting of a low bridge plus a high bridge with a total length of 3,322 meters. Højgaard & Schultz stood for building the distinctive pylons. Monberg Thorsen stood for the superstructure.
1989-1998 and 1995-2000 the two companies collaborated again on the Great Belt Bridge and Oresund Bridge. In 2000 the wind farm Middelgrundens Vindmøllepark was established.
