The future waterworks will be constructed as an oblong building in a beautiful nature area near Køge Creek and will be specially adapted to suit the surroundings. To reduce the visual volume, the building will be divided into smaller units.
The facade that greets guests and employees is made of recycled bricks. This helps to highlight the connection to the existing waterworks and the houses that are already located on the site, while at the same time, giving the building a warm and welcoming look. The other facade surfaces will be made from fiber concrete and thermally modified ash wood, which will be installed vertically to give the longest possible lifespan.
Sustainability is a key focal point for the waterworks at Regnemark. In the design phase, emphasis has been placed on using materials with a long shelf life and low CO2 emissions, just as there is a focus on minimizing energy consumption. The waterworks is the first of its kind to be registered for the Voluntary Sustainability Class, where limits have been set for how much CO2 new buildings may emit, and from which learnings will ultimately contribute to the shaping of future legislation.
