If you had to do it again?
Modify the medical equipment so that it does´t need to be any static dissipative
floors in the building.
Building users opinion
The people working are very satisfyed, they have had a lot of visits from other hospitals. The goal have been that the newborn child shall not be separated from parents during the hospital stay and all parents should be offered a room directly adjacent to the point of care and that
no contagion of multiresistant bacteria shall be possible. Due to the architecture it is possible for the parent to stay close and also to get a room close to the outside and the inside of the clinic.

Landstinget in Värmland has long acted consciously to choose and regulate the “best” environmentally friendly products in construction. In its buildings Landstinget does not wish to build in material which it subsequently may have to sanitize or retrofit later or which might cause illness. By controlling the selec- tion of materials and managing output, risks and pro- blems can be minimized reducing later stage impact to the environment.
What impact in terms of reduced unwanted chemi- cal presence does Landstingsfasigheter in Värmland achieve through their work and at what increased expenditure?
The difference between building with environmental or without environmental requirements but with the same functional requirements is in the present case estimated to 201249 SEK. The total cost for the con- struction was 59,229 thousand SEK, the subsequent increase in building environmentally consciously was 0.33% of the total budget, excluding equipment for this project. At the sime time there was a reduction of through active environmetal choices approximately 800 kg (787-915 kg) of phthalates have not been released and that the benefit to the environment is not insignificant. In ad- dition, we know that we did not have to use 1598kg PVC plastic by choosing a different superior plastic.
All premature infants in care in the region will directly benefit through reduced exposure to chemicals at the same time as the entrepreneurs will learn to think on the environment in other projects.

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)
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.
