Is the project still active: Yes
Comments: Initially, the project owner corporation considered a DBFOM delivery, but it was determined to not provide the level of value necessary for a successful project after conducting a risk analysis. It was determined it would be difficult to find experienced operators due to the unique nature of the facility—an elite Nordic sports training center
