Modular Skylights provide daylight and ensure ventilation and smoke exhaust

With BREEAM's highest environmental classification, «BREEAM Outstanding», the building will go down in history as an international model project. At the same time, its outstanding architecture resonates with Vestre’s industrial history. The factory is designed as a large plus sign seen from above, hence the name "The Plus." The building structure is built according to passive house standards with a supporting structure of mass timber. The structure itself is built with low-carbon concrete and recycled steel reinforcements. Together with good thermal insulation values and roof lights that help minimize energy loss, "The Plus" exceeds the Paris Agreement’s goals by reducing energy consumption by as much as 90%. This is entirely in line with the goals and ambitions Vestre A/S had for the building. "The Plus" is truly an integral part of nature. The trees that were cut down to make room for the building have been incorporated into the building's construction. When it comes to biodiversity, Vestre, with the help of a hired ecologist, has simply lifted the forest floor onto the roof of "The Plus." There, among the forest's flora and fauna, there are around 900 solar panels in perfect harmony with the Modular Skylights from VELUX Commercial.
