The design of the new headquarters of the Danish transport and logistics company, DSV, focuses on sustainability as well as creating a high level of indoor comfort. Over 900 m2 of skylights were included into the project to create an impressive atrium in the centre of the building.
The main contractor for the building was HS Hansen A/S, and they chose to partner with the VELUX Group for the atrium. The VELUX Modular Skylights system was able to guarantee the exact amount of daylight and ventilation that DSV were looking for in their new headquarters, but it also gave an element of speed, which was vital to the project.
According to John Hansen, the project leader, even though the planning prior to the installation of the 420 VELUX Modular Skylights took more than four months, the atrium was installed in just 15 working days.
