More about this product

In the early 2000s, the renowned German engineering company Siemens decided to modernize their Head Office in Ballerup, outside Copenhagen, Denmark. An overhaul of the existing office building was quickly deemed too expensive, so plans for an entirely new building came into play.

The new Siemens Head Office was inaugurated in 2014 and utilized all the latest Siemens technology. But the centerpiece of the new building is the awe-inspiring atrium. The large atrium ridgelight solution consists of six rows of VELUX Modular Skylights which ensure an abundance of daylight, resulting in a bright and pleasant space for employees to congregate.

John Finnich Pedersen, Director of Communication at Siemens is especially proud of how they strive for sustainable energy solutions has made the Danish Head Office a guiding light within the company. The building is LEED qualified with a gold rating. With this new office facility, Siemens has fulfilled all its demands in terms of how a modern building should work.”

Documenting the daylight effect helped Siemens achieve LEED certification. LEED stands for Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design, it is a way to ensure the quality of the building. The certification is based on five categories, which include information about location, water consumption, energy consumption, materials, and resources, as well as the indoor climate.

One of the LEED parameters involves the volume of daylight in the building. An effect which can be notoriously difficult to predict. To help document daylight levels, VELUX has a number of Building Simulation Tools, which can be used to simulate the impact of VELUX Modular Skylights.
