Taking responsibility with sustainable building materials  

The construction industry is evolving, and environmental requirements are becoming increasingly important, especially when choosing building materials.  

While Norway has several BREEAM- certified projects in Norway, it hasn’t stopped them from getting more, and the office building at Otto Nielsens Vei is the first BREEAM- Excellent project in the city of Trondheim.  

BREEAM(Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) is one of the world’s leading sustainability assessment certification because it looks at the entire built environment lifecycle. It promotes the protection of natural resources and focuses on wellbeing.

An office with high confidentiality  

The office building is home to many companies, but Nordic Semiconductor had some special requests. They needed a space that offered confidentiality because they develop and test their new technology in-house.

Design for different areas  

The office design needed to accommodate different working environments, so Arcasa arkitekter, an Oslo based architectural company, designed the space to include offices of various sizes, meeting rooms and an open office. To create the privacy Nordic Semiconductor wanted, Arcasa arkitekter opted to use Rockfon Blanka dB42 because of its high sound-insulating and sound-absorbing properties and Rockfon Tropic because of its smooth, attractive surface with good sound absorption. 

Rockfon Blanka dB42 has been replaced by Rockfon Blanka dB 43 in our assortment.
