BREEAM Excellent benchmark for Swedish office

The NCC Koggen 2 project in Sweden has been achieved BREEAM Excellent – reportedly the highest level received by an office building in the Nordic region.

Koggen 2 in Malmö features a carefully selected structural system and climate shell. Using geothermal heating, it has an energy consumption of 34 kWh per sq m, nearly half of the requirements in Boverket´s Building Regulations.

The building also has a green roof, with a special selection of plants to increase biological diversity.

The Koggen 2 property, comprising 8,100 sq m of space distributed on six storeys, was sold to Vasakronan in 2012. The premises are included in the Future Office by NCC offering, a Nordic concept aimed at creating attractive and sustainable workplaces for customers.

NCC senior vice-president corporate sustainability Christina Lindbäck said: “The certification is the result of NCC’s proactive ambition to become the leading company in the environmental area.

“All our commercial buildings have to achieve at least the BREEAM Very Good level. Earlier this year, NCC achieved the highest BREEAM certification for an industrial building in Sweden and the Nordic region.

“Being first to achieve Excellent for an office property is without doubt an “excellent” continuation of our environmental journey.”
