The renovation of Egedalsvænge in Kokkedal comprised façades and roofing for 18 residential blocks, the upgrading of homes in four stairways, and the renovation of 59 stairwells including the installation of lifts.
Renovation, Residential construction
During the renovation, MT Højgaard remained in close contact with local residents. This kept any worries and difficulties to a minimum, so that daily life could continue to run smoothly while the renovation was taking place.
In addition to the 18 residential blocks and the 59 stairwells, MT Højgaard also upgraded the courtyards, replaced the lighting in stairwells and undertook a range of electrical and plumbing work. Furthermore, we carried out damp proofing and insulation as well as drainage and sewerage work.
Before the installation of the new façades, the existing façades underwent environmental rehabilitation.
MT Højgaard also renovated the outside areas in the courtyard of Egedalsvænget.
Industrialised building components and prefabrication
Before we began the assembly of the new façades, we undertook extensive environmental management, in particular on lead and pcb in the existing façades.
We renovated Egedalsvænge using industrialised building components and a high level of pre-fabrication of façade elements, balconies, oriels, klimaskorstene and ventilation rooms.
Among other things, the renovation of Egedalsvænge included façades and roofs of 18 apartment blocks.
As part of our efforts to make Egedalsvænge more sustainable, we installed ’klimaskorstene’ to replace the existing skylights, and we established a new rainwater system as well as solar systems on south facing roofs. In addition, the renovation of façades and roofs resulted in both energy savings and energy improvements.
