    The Älvsbacka Bridge in Skellefteå is one of many pedestrian bridges constructed by Martinsons since the late 1980s and an innovative example of wood construction. It takes advantage of the environmental and other benefits from greater use of wood in building projects. Pedestrian bridges cause less inconvenience to traffic, as they reduce the number of pedestrian crossings. The wooden Älvsbacka Bridge in Skellefteå also provides several further advantages over other types of bridge:
    • A high level of prefabrication, which makes for quick assembly.

  • Green Zone is a unique pioneering project, proving that it’s possible to create an almost waste-free environment even when building and operating services like a car wash and petrol station. The synergy-based solutions for air, light, energy and water make Green Zone a centre for learning about circular sustainability. Green Zone in Umeå was the first of its kind when it was established in 2000, and it’s still a role model when it comes to energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and a circular approach.

  • Objective

    The municipality of Örnsköldsvik has a long given priority to sustainable and energy efficient building. The expertise regarding energy efficiency and alternative energy sources are great and we have benefited from the expertise available internally in the municipality and held by planners, designers and installers when new building erected. In Ornskoldsvik, we have recently built schools, nursing homes, swimming pools and office buildings. All along, the minimization of energy has been an important issue.
