Castellum builds world’s first climate-neutral police building
Castellum will construct an office building in central Örebro for the Swedish Police Authority. The building will be constructed entirely of wood and certified in compliance with the new Sweden Green Building Councils (SGBC) certification: NollCO2. A primary objective is for the building to have net-zero CO2 emissions throughout its lifetime. The project is calculated to cost approx. MSEK 225 – including acquired building rights of MSEK 15 – and the investment will result in an annual leasing income of MSEK 15.
“It feels really good to win the confidence of the architectural firm, the municipality and our tenants – the Swedish Police – to construct a unique office building that is one of the very first climate-neutral projects to achieve the tough new NollCO2 certification. We’re now taking a major step in the right direction to build more climate-smart while we contribute to a more sustainable community,” says Henrik Saxborn, CEO at Castellum AB.
Niclas Hallgren, Deputy Regional Police Chief in Bergslagen, looks forward to the day the new premises become reality:
“The new police station makes us better equipped for the future. Workplace environment will be improved for our staff, and ultimately this will also benefit our fellow citizens. It feels extra great that the new premises will create minimal impact on the environment,” says Niclas Hallgren.
