In October 2012 the project development and construction group Skanska finished their greenest building ever. Their new local office in Helsingborg is built as an energy neutral building that is filled with Fagerhult’s latest LED luminaires.
Here is a preview of what future holds for modern offices – an energy neutral building with a holistic approach on construction, maintenance and lighting. This green initiative gave a top modern office for the Skanska operations in Helsingborg, Sweden. Väla Gård is from the 19th century and its new construction suits well into the historical surrounding.
The green ambition
Skanska’s ambition was to create an energy neutral building, which means that the building itself produces the energy it needs in a yearly basis. It has sun panels on the roofs, well-thought isolation and ventilation, geothermal heating and energy efficient lighting solutions.
The unique architecture is created by Tengbom architects. Every detail is thought of such as the use of recycled material and qualified lighting technique.
Väla Gård is now on its way to be certified with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in the highest level of Platinum. That is good for the people working in the building since studies shows LEED-certified surroundings increase productivity and makes people feel better.
Natural elements give the extra touch in the building, when entering the main entrance a great wall of vegetation greets the visitors, together with the natural light that shines through the big windows. The natural light is complimented with light lines of Notor and the LED pendant Freedom over the reception.
LED for general light and conference rooms
For open office spaces, Fagerhult have developed an effective recessed LED luminaire. Multilume Flat is amongst the first LED luminaires to be more efficient than its T5 equivalent – this became an excellent choice for the general light in office spaces and conference rooms.
Our latest LED edition of architectural light can also be found in the smaller conference rooms. It is the pendant Tibi that floats in the atmosphere like a tasteful pastille.
Light only when you need it
The whole building breaths smart lighting solutions. The natural daylight is well taken care of with daylight sensors. Following the motto, light when you need it, the light adjusts itself with presence detectors to the motion in the building.
With our intelligent lighting control e-Sense you can choose from different kind of ways to save on maintenance, energy and money. This is lighting solutions that goes hand in hand with the energy effective office of the future.
