FOR THE FOYER, WINNER OF THE SWEDEN GREEN BUILDING AWARDS
The foyer is an office building situated next door to the central station in Malmö, Sweden. In the autumn of 2019, the Group company Veg Tech installed sedum roofs and created the Foyer’s roof garden with including root protection, drainage layers to various Swedish plants from the wild to attract pollinators. The roof garden, also called a biotope roof, has well-planned areas with different corridors and living areas where benches and armchairs invite to a coffee break and networking for those who work and live in the building. The foyer was named winner of the cate- gory BREEAM building of the year in the autumn of 2020.
This is the jury’s motivation: With a central location in Malmö, the property owner’s ambition was to create a green and inviting neighborhood with several meeting places where people enjoy working and living. The characteristic of the Foyer is a committed cooperation between client and contractor, with a strong focus on building an organization together that supports the implementation and follow-up of the certification.
