Ensuring optimal energy use

Caverion will design, build, operate and maintain all technical systems and solutions in the property, including technical disciplines such as Heating and Sanitation, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Electricity, Security and Safety and Automation. The property will be connected to Caverion’s remote management service, which will ensure agreed conditions and optimal energy use in the building.
In addition to technical maintenance, Caverion is also responsible for managing other services related to the property through subcontracting, such as canteen, cleaning and winter maintenance.

Together these projects demonstrate that we are the leading provider in Denmark of increasingly comprehensive life cycle solutions,” says Knut Gaaserud, Executive Vice President & CEO, division Denmark-Norway of Caverion.
The project is part of public-private cooperation with the Aarhus Municipality and belongs to Caverion’s public sector client segment. The building will bring together 1,000 employees of the Aarhus Municipality. The total area of the property is approximately 20,000 m2.
