Brøndby Boligselskab and Lejerbo have appointed Sweco’s team of architects and engineers specializing in public housing as overall advisers on the renovation of the housing association’s four high-rise buildings in Brøndby Stand. The renovation is part of the comprehensive plan HP4, which will develop the Brøndby Strand Parks into a coherent and vibrant district.
Sweco are, among other things, responsible for planning and coordinating the renovation of the departments’ combined four high-rise buildings on 16 floors through all project phases. The associated nearby outdoor areas and parking garages must also be renovated.
Brøndby Strand is one of the most important works of Danish welfare architecture. With the renovation, Sweco must lift the high-rise buildings with respect for both the residents’ wishes and the resident democratic process, the original architecture and ensure the greatest possible value within the financial framework.
The renovation of the four high-rise buildings under Brøndby Boligselskab includes, among other things, energy renovation of facades and roofs, replacement of installations and technical systems as well as furnishing of common areas/lobbies and nearby outdoor areas with a focus on increased safety and quality.
