Building Information Modeling/ Virtual Design & Construction
Right next to the water on the small island of Universitetsholmen in central Malmö, the climate-smart office property Bassängkajen is taking shape. The property, which Skanska is constructing as part of a design construct contract, will cover 16,200 square meters and comprise seven floors and a garage. The project is split into two phases the first of which covered 8,500 square meters and was completed in September 2011, with the second scheduled for completion in summer 2012.
Energy efficiency and consideration for the environment have pervaded the entire project and the Bassängkajen building was the first in the Nordic region to be pre-certified at LEED platinum level. The building is also classified as an EU GreenBuilding, meaning that its energy consumption is 25 percent lower than prevailing energy standards. To achieve the high certification requirements, the property was designed using environmentally compatible construction materials, the roofs feature sedum plants and the energy used in the building comes from renewable sources.
The environmental benefits for tenants are numerous. Aside from the comfortable indoor climate and the excellent air quality, the location of the property is strategically selected. Its proximity to Malmö central station and the City Tunnel rail link makes it an easy choice for tenants to leave their car at home and take public transport instead. The property also features ample parking for bicycles, a bicycle wheel pumping station and changing rooms aimed at encouraging the tenant to use a bicycle. It is also possible to borrow a bicycle.
During the construction process, there was a particular focus on safety – among other activities, we awarded a safety prize each month to a dedicated employee, we replaced old knives with modern and safe cutting tools and we introduced daily safety rounds.

Bassängkajen is one of Skanska’s greenest-ever office properties. The property’s energy consumption is 36 percent below the norm stipulated by Boverket (the Swedish Board of Housing Building and Planning) for newly constructed properties. Bassängkajen is classified as an EU GreenBuilding, meaning that its energy consumption is 25 percent lower than prevailing energy requirements. Bassängkajen was also the first building in the Nordic region to be pre-certified at LEED platinum level.
A number of climate-smart measures were taken to achieve the highest LEED score. For example, the building is supplied with electricity from renewable sources, only certified timber is used and great importance was assigned to the indoor climate and air quality. Much of the roof is covered in sedum plants. The plants are not only beautiful to look at, they also absorb much of the acid rain that would otherwise run into the urban water drains. The vegetation also insulates the roof against heat and cold and extends the life of the waterproof membrane.
Bassängkajen also makes it easy for the tenants to act intelligently to conserve energy. Among other features, the property is equipped with water-saving taps and toilets that help keep water consumption low. The building also has a large recycling center where paper, cardboard, plastic metal and glass can be sorted.
Bassängkajen’s proximity to Malmö central station and the City Tunnel rail link makes it easy for tenants and visitors to leave their cars at home. There is ample parking for bicycles, a bicycle wheel pumping station, showers and changing rooms for those who take their bicycle. It is also possible to borrow a bicycle. For those who choose to take the car anyway, electricity recharging stations are provided.
All new tenants are offered an energy consultation to address both small and big issues to help them become that little bit more environmentally smart. This could involve how to utilize the building in the best possible manner, how activities can be more sustainable and how to optimize the use of ecolabeled products.
The construction of Bassängkajen on the island of Universitetsholmen in central Malmö commenced in 2009 and took place over two phases. Skanska is acting as the general contractor and is in charge of project development, financing, planning, constructing and leasing. The first phase was completed in September 2011 and phase two is scheduled for completion in summer 2012. In total, the property encompasses 16,200 square meters and includes seven stories and a garage. When it is finished, Bassängkajen will be made up of two connected buildings surrounding a square courtyard.
Much of the property has been leased and many tenants have already moved into the space-saving offices. The premises are highly flexible, enabling tenants to grow, remodel or reduce floor space where necessary.
In September 2009, the first sod was turned for Malmö’s greenest office property. Foundation work commenced on an area where an old parking lot was once situated. The property has a thick in-situ cast foundation slab to withstand the groundwater pressure from below.
In order to select the right material, we have calculated the carbon footprint for the entire project per construction component. This involved computing the impact of the various parts on the external environment and selecting the material to be used accordingly. Some 12 percent of the project’s building material contains recycled material and the reinforcement bars used comprised 99 percent recycled steel.
When building Bassängkajen, great focus was devoted to the tenants who would occupy the building. It went without saying that all tenants should have access to natural daylight. Accordingly, the property was fitted with large windows allowing daylight to effectively penetrate the building.
To facilitate the construction process, the project managers were each given an iPad pre-installed with the Vela system. All of the building’s drawings and documents are stored in the system. The building information can subsequently be accessed by various individuals involved in the project, such as sub-contractors, suppliers and site supervisors. Out on the worksite, the project manager can readily enter relevant information and note any errors in the system. This data is then updated for all of those connected to the project. In this way, no one can miss out on events at the site and it is easier to follow-up any faults.
Safety was prioritized throughout the construction process and new methods were developed to enhance safety. Activities introduced included safety rounds in which all site personnel were included. We held safety meetings every afternoon at which we identified risks and carried out preventive measures. We also launched a safety award that we present to a committed employee once a month. A particular area of focus was the replacement of dangerous knives with modern and safer cutting tools.
