The large Nordic financial company, Nordea, is moving into its brand new Danish headquarters located in the modern Ørestaden area of Copenhagen. The renowned Danish architectural company, Henning Larsen Architects, was responsible for the design of the building and the area surrounding it. Great emphasis has been placed on the functionality of the building and on making the area outside a pleasant park. Ørestaden is a fairly new area of Copenhagen, which has quickly become known for fascinating architecture.
Vetrotech supplied over 1'600m2 of Contraflam Lite Structure EW30 solutions. Among other things, Vetrotech's glass was used to realize the stunning and light-flooded atriums of the building, which are surrounded by an impressive installation of fire-resistant glass all the way up to the 6th floor.
"The Nordea project had strict requirements for documentation of sound reduction values. At Vetrotech, the presence of documentation is always crucial, and therefore we could swiftly provide sound reports calculated by our mother company, Saint-Gobain."
