NCC to build sustainable HQ for shipping company DFDS

The design of the building draws inspiration from the streamlined elegance of a cruise liner, both inside and out. The project’s owner is PensionDanmark.

Pension fund PensionDanmark has entered into a turnkey contract with NCC for a building that has capacity for up to 700 employees across approximately 12,500 m2 and is expected to obtain sustainability certification to DGNB’s Gold standard. The building is scheduled to be ready for occupancy in early 2022.

Requirement for sustainable construction

NCC has developed a detailed understanding of PensionDanmark’s clearly defined requirements for sustainable buildings. The result is attractive properties that are future-proofed through flexible solutions and extremely high quality standards, coupled with low maintenance and energy costs. This means that DFDS will be moving into a particularly attractive setting with the very best conditions for employee well-being, and that PensionDanmark’s members can expect solid returns on their investment for many years to come says PensionDanmark’s CEO, Torben Möger Pedersen.
We share PensionDanmark’s ambition to help create a sustainable future, and we have already constructed several DGNB-certified buildings on their behalf. This will be an unusual structure whose maritime character builds a bridge between the waterside location and DFDS’s operations. We are pleased to be building this exciting landmark says Palle Bjerre Rasmussen, Head of NCC Building Nordics in Denmark
