FACTS

Project: Refurbishment of HMN headquarters

Role: Architect

Size: DKK 7.2 million

Location: Gladsaxe

Client: HMN Naturgas A/S

Lead architect: Mads Stenbæk Jakobsen

Currently, HMN Naturgas is housed in two buildings on Gladsaxe Ringvej, no. 11 and no. 13. Both are used as office buildings and are structurally integrated with a large storage and workshop area of roughly 4,000 m².

The project brings together all office facilities into one building – Gladsaxevej 11 – and updates the layout with flexible, open-plan offices where daylight and lighting are more prominent features.

As part of the relocation process, naturally related departments are brought together. Sales, exhibition and customer service are refurbished on the ground floor with good customer access. The management gets its own floor in an open-plan office with supplementary quiet areas and meeting rooms.

The conversion process also includes an operational control centre, IT systems and offices in general.

The entire project was carried out in close dialogue with user representatives who partnered with Sweco to monitor it all the way into the implementation phase.
