Property Developer, NCC Property Development
In the heart of Hagastaden we have developed two world class retail and office buildings. The latest one is certified as “Outstanding” in accordance with the world’s most stringent environmental-certification system, BREEAM. These two buildings have the right location, the right work environment and one of them will I a few years have a metro station downstairs. They also contribute to new destination Norra Stationsgatan.
Well planned premises conducive to healthier employees and improved performance. Being active in an environmentally certified property generates credibility both internally and externally. The results for this are stronger customer relations, proud employees and an edge in the fight for new talents. Torsplan is a world class work environment and has won several awards.
Having the right office is a success factor. A modern office that is adapted to the business activities that will be pursued is becoming both a company’s face to the world and a place where employees can perform efficiently. People who feel good at work have lower sickness absence rates, perform better and thus generate more profit for the company. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly important to offer an inspiring work environment in the right location to attract and retain the best employees. Consequently, it is not unusual that ever more companies regard the office as a tool of business strategy.
The premises at Torsplan are spacious and open, with plenty of daylight. The two light courts bring light all the way into the building. The building is highly adaptable, featuring floors with no columns and other well-founded solutions that increase flexibility. For example, all the conduits are hidden in the ceiling. Fixtures and conduits are led directly down to the individual workstation or room, and are just as conveniently movable. Sprinkler nozzles are attached to pivoted arms, so as not to limit the possibilities in terms of wall placements and floor plans. This allows for the optimal utilization of every single square meter.
The surfaces are easily furnished since there are no traditional radiators. The building’s energy-efficient system provides heating and cooling from the ceiling. Before you move into Torsplan, the office will be built to match your wishes and requirements in close cooperation with us. The process is called Future Office by NCC. We work together systematically so that no important issues fall between the cracks when the new office is to be designed.
Proceed along Torsgatan and you will soon find yourself in the midst of Vasastan's restaurants and shops; proceed north through the new Norrtull Park and you will be in the vicinity of both the beautiful nature of Haga Park and the waters of Brunnsviken. Torsplan Phase Two is adjacent to the completed Torsplan Phase One, where Coffeehouse by George, the Max hamburger franchise, Liins Wok House restaurant, Hemköp supermarket, Systembolaget (state liquor store) and Lloyds Pharmacy are located. In Torsplan Phase Two both SATS gym and Restaurang Toro will move in during late 2016.
Two to three floors of services and retail activities are planned for Torsplan Phase Two. The stores will become a natural hub for residents, workers and visitors from Hagastaden and Vasastaden. It will be just as much a place for meetings and social activities, as for day-to-day purchases – something that generates a pulse in this part of the city and that makes daily life easier for those who work there.
New and expanded transport links will make it convenient to travel to and from Torsplan. The Greater Stockholm Public Transport Company is developing an access point to the metro line in Torsplan itself, with entrances from the ground level and escalators down from the parking garage. The new metro station will be inaugurated in 2020.
A short walk will take you to St. Eriksplan, where the metro system’s green line and bus number 4 and other routes can be accessed. You can also easily walk or cycle to Karolinska Hospital and the University area. Similarly, you can walk or cycle to Roslagstull, Kungsholmen or Odenplan. The E4 Expressway, Solnavägen and St. Eriksgatan are also in the vicinity of Torsplan.
By choosing environmentally certified premises, you assume responsibility for promoting sustainable development. Your environmental responsibility generates profitability in the form of lower energy costs, a stronger brand and satisfied, thriving employees at peak performance.
Environmental objectives are more important than ever for Torsplan. Through its environmental certification at the highest BREEAM level of Outstanding, Torsplan will be one of the leading properties in the world in terms of environmental performance and work environment. The certification is objective evidence that the property maintains high quality and genuinely lives up to stringent environmental objectives.
BREEAM adopts a holistic approach to the building and the surrounding environment. Achieving certification entails that the property has been evaluated in relation to a number of established benchmark values, with energy and water consumption, indoor climate, pollution, transport, building materials, waste management and property-management processes as just a few of the aspects that are assessed.
The building’s energy consumption will also be certified through GreenBuilding. Such certification is objective evidence that the property maintains high quality and genuinely lives up to the stringent environmental objectives. Torsplan ticks all of the boxes necessary for you, as a tenant, to work in a climate-friendly manner. For example electricity, heating and cooling are individually metered. The high technological standard generates low operating costs, flexible premises and a comfortable indoor climate. Similarly, the environmental certification means that the indoor environment is healthy for you and your co-workers.
A move to Torsplan represents a stance in favor of sustainability, thus enhancing your company’s brand. A move to Torsplan means that your organization will also be Outstanding.
