The design of the new headquarters of the Danish transport and logistics company, DSV, focuses on sustainability as well as creating a high level of indoor comfort. Over 900 m2 of skylights were included into the project to create an impressive atrium in the centre of the building.
The main contractor for the building was HS Hansen A/S, and they chose to partner with the VELUX Group for the atrium. The VELUX Modular Skylights system was able to guarantee the exact amount of daylight and ventilation that DSV were looking for in their new headquarters – but it also gave an element of speed, which was vital to the project.
“We wanted to find a partner that could seal off the building quickly, and even though the planning prior to the installation of the 420 VELUX Modular Skylights took more than four months, the atrium was installed in just 15 working days”, says John Hansen, project leader at HS Hansen A/S. Sealing off the building quickly protects the inside from the elements and allows the builders to continue working – even in inclement weather.
