Länsförsäkringar Office building complex, Västerås, Sweden
Länsförsäkringar Office building complex
The building complex owned by the local insurance alliance, Länförsäkringar Bergslagen, is located at the prime spot in central Västerås. The building complex’ 28.000 m2 combine together a variety of businesses; several shops, a law firm, a bank and other traditional offices – and even a dentist’s office. Even though the requirements of such different businesses usually differ somewhat, one thing is always the same: a pleasant indoor climate is a must to ensure a comfortable working environment.
In the past there had been some problems with the cooling system in use which consisted of traditional climate beams. The tenants had complained about drafts and condensation on the premises. With so many different activities under one roof, there is also a need to keep the spaces open for renovations and other alterations, but with the traditional system in use such is difficult to realise. Thus, when it came the time to start looking for a new system to keep the complex chilled while enabling better use of the office space in general, the owners opted for the Uponor cooling system with comfort panels.
The Uponor cooling with comfort panels is easy to install and use, in both new build and renovation projects. The solution is energy-efficient, silent and blends in with the regular ceiling making it virtually invisible for the users.
“This project shows that the Uponor cooling system created with the comfort panel technology is suitable for all types of businesses,” comments Ulf Widehn from Cool Ceiling Systems Västerås, the company that installed the Uponor cooling panels to the building.
With the Uponor comfort panel cooling system installed the building is draft-free, ensuring all tenants a pleasant working environment.
Cool Ceiling Systems
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
