Topping-out ceremony at new, iconic office building in Copenhagen

A topping-out ceremony was held today at PLH Arkitekter’s new, innovative office building in Nordhavn, Copenhagen. With its eye-catching design and location on one of the most central main roads leading to the center of the Danish capital, the new office building will become a significant landmark for the city.

From the S-train at Nordhavn Station or from cars or bicycles on Kalkbrænderihavnsgade, commuters and travelers have recently been able to follow how a new office building has taken shape day by day.

As the building has now reached its full six floor height, a topping-out ceremony was held today with the participation of PLH Arkitekter's CEO Søren Mølbak.

"The new office building at Marmormolen is a project we are incredibly proud to be a part of. Seen from the outside, the building becomes a remarkable sight with a 23-meter-long skywalk that connects the eastern and western parts of the building. Inside the building, employees and guests will be greeted by the best in modern office construction with a strong focus on quality, comfort, flexibility and sustainability," says Søren Mølbak.

Beneath the skywalk, which soars five stories above ground, an intimate, newly designed public square will create a corridor from the street to the harbor and serve as a recreational area for employees and visitors.

The building can become a workplace for up to 560 employees and will offer flexible office spaces and common areas for work, meetings and collaboration.

A focus on sustainability and well-being

Sustainability and green solutions are considered in all aspects of the building's life cycle, from the initial design phase to construction and operation. In addition to reducing energy consumption and minimizing the carbon footprint, the building's sustainable profile provides noticeable benefits for people both inside and outside.

Among other things, the format of the windows has been enlarged, there is extra ceiling height throughout and several common areas are double height. Thus, lots of natural daylight flows into the building, which increases employee well-being, lowers energy costs and gives the building an open and transparent exterior.

The construction is set to achieve the sustainability certification DGNB Gold.
