Kopparhammaren 2, Norrköping
Klövern together with Linköping University have signed an agreement to develop and rebuild Kopparhammaren 2 which is located next to Motala Ström in the industrial landscape in Norrköping.
The building's gross area includes refurbishment of approximately 1,800 square meters and new construction of approximately 1,650 square meters, the project also includes an optional space of about 1,800 square meters where the climate shell will be improved.
The property consists of several buildings. Closest to Grytstorget is house 33 which is from the early 1800s. House 32, in the middle, is also a 1800 century house that after a fire in the 1950s, was raised by one floor. House 32 will be rebuilt and the facade improved. House 33 is optional space for the university and will only be rebuilt on the outside. The third building, house 31 became in September 2010, exposed to a fire. The burnt down building was one of the oldest in the industrial landscape. On the old foundation, new construction will be made with slightly increased volume than the original building. The new building along with the refurbishment will become an important part of the university's new spread around the stream with the Campus Bridge as the unifying link.
Kopparhammaren 2 will be an eco-building in more ways than one. The ambition is to get the property classified as Miljöbyggnad Gold for the newly built part and Miljöbyggnad Silver for the refurbished part. Miljöbyggnad is the classification that is best adapted to Swedish conditions and means that you have to meet a number of criteria, among other things, it is about energy consumption and indoor climate.
Solar panels are not a requirement but are still included in the plans for the newly built part of Kopparhammaren. Sedum roof - a modern equivalent of the old-time sod roofs - are included in the plans for the rebuilt part. The advantages of sedum roofs is that the greenhouse effect decreases with vegetation that converts carbon dioxide into oxygen. The roof also function as a buffer against rain water, which is absorbed by the earth. In addition, the ceiling becomes a nice surface in the industrial landscape where it is otherwise difficult to obtain greenery. Another bonus effect is that the roof also has a cooling effect in the summer. Ground was broken on Aug. 23, 2013. The premises are expected to be ready for occupancy in the beginning of the semester in autumn 2014.
