Granuldisk has been selected as a supplier of potwashing machines for a prestigious project with BREEAM certification.
The project is the Hedlunda preschool in Umeå, northern Sweden. Granuldisk offers potwashing machines using its own granule technology which have been selected according to BAT principles (Best Available Technology).
The company is also represented as part of the BREEAM project Tour CB21 – Paris La Défense in France.
The BREEAM project involving Hedlunda preschool in Umeå will be Sweden’s most northerly passive building, and the aim is to achieve a rating of ‘very good’ in its BREEAM certification. Emphasis on energy efficiency is characteristic of passive buildings.
Technical consultants at SWECO have adopted a holistic approach to the entire project design and planning stage and opted to focus on potwashing, as this is a major consumer of energy.
Selecting a granule potwashing machine means that energy consumption can be reduced considerably.
“All equipment has been selected according to BAT principles. This means that we assess and analyse the life cycles for each unit and select the best technology in respect of ecology and energy efficiency,” says Thomas Greindl, certified passive building architect at SWECO.
Granuldisk is already represented in CB21 Tower, which is situated in Europe’s top business district, La Defénse in Paris, which has been refurbished according to the BREEAM environmental standard.
There are two kitchens there which have both been fitted with granule potwashing machines from Granuldisk.
