IDOM opens its commercial office in Sweden
Sustainable offices which focus on the health wellbeing of its occupants
IDOM has opened its commercial office in Sweden in Epic Malmö, one of the greenest and most sustainable buildings in Scandinavia. In March 2021, the technical magazine Byggindustrin called it the best office building in the country in 2021.
The building has obtained the LEED sustainability certification and the highest classification level, PLATINUM.
At Epic Malmö, a lot of work has been done with the reuse and recycling of materials, making it one of the first large projects of this type in Sweden. For example:
- 77,195 recycled PET bottles have been turned into sound absorbing fabric, behind the wooden panel in the atrium
- 35,221 meters of window frames and beams from demolition projects were reused
- 16 tons of concrete from the Copenhagen metro was used for the ground
- 17 tons of bricks from Epic’s own facade became the tiles
Additionally, it received the WELL certification for how the built environment affects the people who are in it to promote health, through resources such as vegetation and stairs that invite movement.
