Here is one of our recent renovation projects – SAS Frösundavik Office Building in Sweden. It serves as the head office of Scandinavian Airlines and the SAS Group. The refurbishment optimised the entire building in terms of energy and improved its carbon footprint. The property, is BREEAM certified and expects its tenants to cooperate in the sustainable use of the property in terms of green leases.
To bring thermal and visual comfort up to contemporary standards, the glazing was completely replaced. 3500m2 of glass was supplied by us. This highly selective solar coating Xtreme70/33 on extra-white Diamant creates a pleasantly bright atmosphere and a significantly improver indoor climate inside the building. Diamant is a unique extra clear glass which is valued for its attractive appearance and optical qualities. The low iron content produces a higher light transmittance and truly reduces the green tint inherent of ordinary glass.
During this renovation, around 50 tonnes of glass were recycled.
SAS head office history
The building was built from 1985 through 1987 and renovated in 2022. On it’s 55,000m2 it has seven separate building blocks with a street, covered by a glass roof, connecting the corridors. The street is lined with shops and cafes. During the years there were many variations where to locate the SAS head office. Around 2010 portions of the building were leased to other companies due to reductions on SAS staffing. So they had to reduce their space in the building.
