“We have a responsibility to contribute to developing and preparing solutions that can promote sustainable development and boost the productivity of refurbishment projects. At NCC, we regard digital refurbishment as a significant means by which to achieve this. Accordingly, Hørgården is an important project, in which we will have the opportunity to gain useful experience of digitalization, all the way from project engineering to execution of the project itself,” says Dennis Nielsen, Head of Energy Refurbishment at NCC Construction Denmark.

Modern, innovative residences for the elderly
The Hørgården residential care facility was built in 1974 and comprises three five-story buildings which, after extensive refurbishment, will become a modern residential home for the elderly, with 189 new units. An existing connection between the floors in the three buildings will be expanded to include a middle building that will link all the floors. In addition, NCC will build an activity center, central kitchen and office premises.

When the building is completed, it will fulfil the energy requirements for 2020. The focus is on new technology and sustainable solutions, as well as better work environment for personnel at the facility. When everything is completed, the residents will have modern, healthy, spacious and light housing units.

Digitalization in project optimization
NCC and the consulting team, JJW Architects and Holmsgaard Ingeniører, have spent the past year optimizing the project together with the 3B housing company. This has resulted in the final project proposal that has now been signed by NCC and the 3B housing company.

NCC is the turnkey contractor for the refurbishment of Hørgården, a project that is scheduled to commence in March 2015 and be executed in three phases. One building at a time will be completed and put in use before work on the next building commences. The refurbishment is scheduled to be completed by March 2019. The order will be registered during the first quarter of 2015 in the NCC Construction Denmark business area.
