We are pleased to announce that Sergelhusen’s LEED certification was completed (Platinum and with a world-class ranking). There are only two other properties in the world that have reached higher scores according to LEED v4 / v4.1 BDC (Building Design and Construction) which is the latest and most comprehensive version of LEED.
KG Constructions have designed, produced, transported and installed ~4 800 sq. meters of unitised and almost 1 000 sq. meters of stick curtain walling systems. The facade cladding was made out of re-used stone that was previously used in the building before re-construction.
The Sergel houses, which consist of three different buildings totaling 60,000 sq. meters, reached 90 points out of 110 possible for the house that runs along Sveavägen and 89 points for the buildings that run along Malmskillnadsgatan and Hamngatan. There is only one other project in the world that has reached higher scores, a property in Dubai.
Sergelhusen is one of Stockholm’s largest development projects in modern times and has been developed with a strong focus on both environmental and social sustainability. The project is in many ways groundbreaking, which is also the explanation for the high rating the project has now received. Among other things, concrete frames have been preserved and innovative energy solutions have been installed. Smart power control also reduces the load on the electricity grid.
