Rejlers responsible for electrical design as Vasakronan creates Gothenburg's new landmark
Rejlers has been commissioned to lead the electrical design work for property company Vasakronan’s development of the Kromet block, a future new landmark in Gothenburg. The Kromet block is the next cornerstone in the Lilla Bommen district, which is rapidly being developed to transform it into a vibrant and colourful neighbourhood with a focus on sustainability. Rejlers will be responsible for designing the block's electrical, telecommunications, control, safety and photovoltaic systems during the programme phase.
Vasakronan's development of the Lilla Bommen district in Gothenburg is now under way and Kromet is a key part of this exciting new district which is set to emerge over the coming years. Production is expected to commence in 2021 and 2024, with the building being developed as a mix of offices, housing and public activities, vibrant streets and attractive meeting places. Kromet is situated adjacent to the river next to Hisingsbron's new stronghold, a future landmark which, through its interaction with Läppstiftet, forms a portal motif towards the new Hisingsbron. The design of the building is innovative and resembles the crown of a tree. There is a strong focus on sustainability with construction and façades in wood, the use of recycled building materials and an LEED sustainability certification.
“Rejlers offers us a highly skilled team with extensive experience of designing electrical and telecommunications system in complex projects set against our ambitious goals,” says Stefan Eriksson, Project Manager at Vasakronan.
Rejlers and Vasakronan have worked together for many years on numerous projects in the past. In this project, the partnership is based on a high degree of digitalisation and knowledge transfer, via 3D models and digital platforms.
“We are very pleased with the vote of confidence to be part of the project team which is responsible for designing the block. It is an innovative and sustainable property which will contribute to the urban development of Gothenburg,” says Jonas Holmstedt, Head of the Buildings Division at Rejlers.
