ChromoGenics receives order of SEK 1.7 m. from Kongsberg Municipality in Norway to deliver ConverLight glass to a school
ChromoGenics AB (publ) has signed an agreement with the construction company Skorve Entreprenör to deliver ConverLight® dynamic skylight and a state of the art glass facade solution to a new build of Vestsiden school in Norway.
The project is a new construction of Vestsiden ungdomsskola. The construction company Skorve Entreprenør AS is the total contractor for the project. Deliveries are planned to the year end 2018/2019.
The municipality of Kongsberg has a great focus on new technology, energy efficiency and indoor comfort. The Vestsiden School project is a spearhead program that introduces new technology in a number of areas. The project is supported by Enova, which is the Norwegian state's unit spurring the conversion into a low-emission society. The choice of ChromoGenics’ glass solutions has been made based on these prerequisites, as technology provides energy efficiency that becomes a part of the transition to the low-emission society.
ChromoGenics’ glass solutions simultaneously remove traditional exterior solar control systems from new buildings in a cost-effective way through reduced maintenance costs and future investment costs. The building which overlooks the river Lågen will have unobstructed views without visually disturbing or blocking awnings on sunny days.
"Another order from a municipal school at the forefront shows the need for cost-effective and energy-efficient solution that guarantees unobstructed views, indoor comfort in an environmentally friendly way. It is gratifying that Kongsberg Municipality in Norway chooses ConverLight and ChromoGenics’ glass solutions that provide increased indoor daylight while cold and heat requirements are met. Access to views and improved indoor climate contributes to the productivity of students and teachers. ConverLight and ChromoGenics’ glass solutions also contribute to green building certificates and reduced energy consumption of buildings, which increases the value of the property," says Jerker Lundgren, CEO of ChromoGenics.
