The 16,500 sqm building is divided onto seven stories and all the loadbearing construction is made of wood. The façade consists of a combination of glass, Norwegian slate and photovoltaic cells. Green roofs are combined with advanced stormwater beds covered in greenery on the entrance level. The slate has a low climate impact because of its reusability, low energy use during extraction and low need of maintenance.
The energy supply for the building consists of innovative and thoughtful solutions which has lowered the energy consumption to 15 % of the standard Swedish building code. Photovoltaics on the façade and roof provide electricity for the building and the residual is stored in batteries that can later be used in a power failure. Geothermal energy regulates the indoor climate. Sky-high sustainability goals have been set throughout the process.
