The sustainable vision for Egedal Town Hall and Health Centre
has been to create a healthy, inspiring environment for both
employees and visitors. The users should feel comfortable in all
parts of the building through good, natural daylight conditions and
use of healthy indoor eco-labelled materials.
During the design process, detailed daylight simulations have
been carried out with a view to place the different functions most
optimally in relation to the sun and daylight. This means that all
fixed workstations are provided with ample daylight, which is
important for the users' experience of the indoor climate.
The building geometry, flexibility and use of daylight reduce
the energy consumption without use of technology. This strategy
results in a building with an energy consumption that meets the
requirements for low-energy class 2015 according to Danish building
regulations. With a 100 m2 solar cell system, the total energy
consumption is reduced to 24.3 kWh/m2/year, which makes the
building meet the energy requirements for low-energy class 2020.
Egedal Town Hall and Health Centre will thus become a sustainable
showpiece in public building.
