Office buildings Regionens Hus Gothenburg , Sweden
Skanska Sverige AB commisioned office building Regionens Hus is one of the largest three-construction (3K) projects carried out by UPB. As part of the project, UPB provided steel, concrete and glass structures. A commission under one contract and one set of obligations means faster results and easier project management, as well as facilitates co-operation between the client and the provider.
The Green Project, that corresponds to the demands of Miljobyggnad, was begun in 2016, with architects having the idea of a "building growing out of the earth". This is why the building has a complicated and symbolic facade with gradual color transition. The special effect was gained through silk print technology for the glass, with a special pattern printed on it.
The design of the glass elements for the facade was one of the greatest challenges in the project because attention had to be concentrated both on the durability of the facade. as well as the patterns and the colors of the glass elements. Considering that ceramic-added colors on the glass change its initial tone, a lot of work was invested in creating new models and coordinating with the architects to achieve the gradual transition from one floor to another.
