The innovation project with only half the climate impact
In a traditional new construction project, about 450 kg of CO/sqm is currently emitted. Fabege is now starting to design Parkhuset in Solna Business Park, which is expected to achieve emissions of 225 CO/sqm – this is only half the climate impact compared to a traditional new construction project.
In order to achieve a 50% reduction in the climate impact, building parts from a demolition project in Solna Business Park will be reused, for example. Together with RISE, NCC and Codesign, an investigation has been carried out to ensure that parts from the concrete framework can be reused for the construction of Parkhuset. A preliminary result of the investigation shows that approximately 3,500 sqm of hollow-core elements can be reused, which corresponds to a saving of about 300 tonnes of CO2. In addition, Parkhuset will be built with a wooden framework and with climate-smart material choices throughout the entire project. This will help us reduce emissions to 225 CO2/sqm.
- “We have just completed Scandinavia’s first zero-energy hotel – and now we are raising the bar further with one of Sweden’s most interesting new construction projects. We are aware that we and the industry as a whole have a huge task ahead of us, but at the same time we regard the transition towards a sustainable and profitable business sector with a long-term perspective as being a major opportunity,” says Stefan Dahlbo, CEO of Fabege.
