    Health & Comfort

    This buildingis the first project where it is investigated what impact in terms of reduced unwanted chemical presence does Landstingsfasigheter in Värmland achieve through theirwork and at what increased expenditure? 

    We canestablish that through active environmental choices approximately 800 kg of phthalates have not been released and that the benefit to the environment is not insignificant. In addition, we know that we did not have to use 1598kg PVC plastic by choosing a different superior plastic. These savings have been made at a cost that is less than 0.33% of the total of the building construction portion of the project of 1250 sqm.


    From a health perspective it will always be more important to control chemicals people come into direct contact with than those witch people will not have contact with. Control of exposure to indoor surfaces will be more important than outdoor exposure from facades or roofs. Emissions that take place outdoors will be diluted and have a lower concentration than if in doors. From a property owner's perspective, it is equally important to keep track of a substance whether it is outdoors, indoors or in small amounts, if the property owner at some time in the future might be required to sanitize in regards to aparticular substance.


    How do the environmental requirements work with production? Environmental demands work very well within modern building criteria, as no contractor wants to use materials that are dangerous. Both the contractor and the developer want a long durability and high function, no one wants buildings that will need to be sanitized or that their premises make people unwell.
