Healthy materials and lifetime cost important at New Karolinska Hospital

New Karolinska, Sweden One of the largest construction projects in Europe is the building of the Stockholm hospital New Karolinska. The project was started in 2010 and will continue until 2018. The assignment of the hospital is to provide highly specialized healthcare and conduct basic research, patient-focused clinical research and education. The automatic doors that ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided to New Karolinska ensures energy savings and a pro-longed lifetime by a well-suited service scheme. This state-of-the-art hospital has high demands on energy efficiency as well as high demands on the materials used in products and building materials. PVC is one example of substances that need to be avoided. When selecting products to be used in the hospital, the full lifecycle is also taken into consideration and suppliers need to adhere to the demands to be eligible. Energy savings with well-maintained automatic doors When ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided automatic door solutions to the hospital, service of the doors was central together with delivering doors that fulfill the healthy material requirements. By a well-suited service scheme, energy saving applications of automatic doors are maintained and a pro-longed lifetime of the products are ensured. Pro-longed product lifetime with regular maintenance To have service properly done is essential to keep the energy saving properties of the doors, as well as to ensure continuous and safe operation of the door and thus New Karolinska's operation. The hospital can also count on that partnering with ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems means a lower life cycle cost due to the fact that the products will have a longer lifetime when they are being serviced regularly. Throughout the products lifetime also preventive maintenance will be conducted. This means that parts will be changed before they break. Also upgrades are available to prevent from having to change the whole product.
