Sustainability and green
We have focused on creating a building that is sustainable in the long-term. This involves all aspects from timeless architecture to sustainable materials and flexible layouts. Furthermore, the building must fit into a larger context; it should be a piece of the puzzle in a city district to be developed and brought to life.
A sustainable meeting place
The City of Malmö wants to focus on sustainability at several levels. In addition to using sustainable methods and materials in the construction of the building, the actual purpose of the building is important. The aim is to create a meeting place for people, culture and the business community, thereby also promoting the social sustainability aspect.
The building’s prime location also allows the visitors to travel there using sustainable means of transportation. The activities pursued in the building will attract visitors from throughout the region.
Tyfonen property block LEED certified
The Tyfonen property block will be LEED certified. LEED is an internationally recognized environmental certification system that supports resource-efficient and environmentally sustainable construction.
A general assessment is made of the building’s environmental properties as part of an overall approach aimed at creating a sustainable building. Areas studied include how to reduce energy and water use, carbon emissions and hazardous waste.
Green Workplace is Skanska’s own environmental rating system for construction sites. For the Tyfonen property block, this entails a higher degree of waste sorting, reduced energy consumption for lighting and heating and water-saving showers.
Its location close to central station and other means of public transport enables visitors to travel to the building in an environmentally compatible manner. The building’s tenants will be able to borrow bicycles and parking spaces with recharging facilities for electric cars will be installed.
