Solseilet in Tromso is another project of STATICUS where hybrid façade system was installed. More than 30% of embodied carbon content of the façade was cut through the use of hybrid units (wood/Al). Average embodied carbon content of hybrid units resulted in around 160 kgCO2/m2_facade.
The housing project is located close to Storgatbakken in the center of Tromsø and includes a 13-storey high-rise block, a terraced
house and a corner courtyard. It is the tallest apartment building in Tromsø, and the second tallest in the building in the whole city. In about 7 months, a total of 576 unitized façade elements were installed. Staticus area of works was 3 433 m2.
Overall building envelope U-value is 0,59 W/m2K.
Apart from that project is characterized by high wind loads: pressure 1,62 kN/m2 and suction -2,07 kN/m2.
