  • Creating the Zero Energy Buildings of the Future

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The new regional headquarters of Region Skåne is one of the most energy efficient buildings in Sweden. This represents one further step in the direction of energy efficiency – planning and constructing the energy efficient buildings of the future. Now the process to build a new center for forensic medicine in the city of Trelleborg has been started.

  • Passive houses in Beckomberga

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    In the northern parts of Bromma, two so called ”passive-houses” are being built. Passive houses are particulary isolated, with an efficient heat recycling system and energy-efficient windows. They need 50% less energy compared to conventional multi-dwelling buildings.
