ØKERN PORTAL, Oslo
STATICUS is constantly maximizing the use of recycled and environmentally friendly materials. Our priorities are: choosing certified material suppliers to assure transparency and environmental quality, as well as assuring the proper return path of leftover material to avoid downcycling of base material. A recently completed façade for the Økern Portal project is in line with embodied emissions targets of LETI. This is an innovative office building with façades made of end-of-life recycled aluminium. WICONA Hydro Circal
is one of the most sustainable aluminium alloys which is currently available on the market. It is a certified alloy with a minimum content of 75% post-consumer recycled aluminium. The use of recycled aluminium in Økern Portal largely contributes to 45% of embodied carbon savings in the building envelope, reducing embodied carbon to less than 130 kgCO2/m2 of the façade in the product stage. Project is characterized by high factored (design) wind load, 1,54 kN/m2, and factored (design) snow load, 5,2 kN/m2.
