Stockholmshem is Stockholm's largest housing company with over 50,000 apartments. The company is building two properties with a total of 115 student apartments at Sockenplan in Enskede. The new homes are part of the city's drive to build 140,000 new homes by 2030.
Stockholmshem wants to make it easier to live climate smart and build sustainable houses for future generations. For example, the courtyard is designed with a focus on biodiversity, with plants that pollinators – bees, butterflies, bumblebees – like. They also choose to install Evertherm SEW, as it is a cost-effective solution to meet the energy and climate requirements of the properties.
In the current project, Evertherm is estimated to reduce the amount of purchased energy by more than 23 kWh/m² per year. This means that student properties meet the high climate requirements of a maximum of 55 kWh/m² per year in energy consumption.
The installation of Evertherm's recycling solution will take place in stages during construction, with the first phase starting in November 2019 and continuing until 2023.
