Bacchus is the start of a new, living district in the Swedish town of Falkenberg. It is being built on an artificial peninsula once created to produce and store Sweden’s needs of wine and liquor. The plan is for a total of 140 contemporary apartments in 4 buildings in a unique location by the neighboring sea. In addition, a brand new hall for paddle tennis is being build. Bacchus symbolizes an innovative Falkenberg.
Stable indoor climate regardless of the weather
The apartment buildings in the new district of Bacchus were designed with the sea as a source of inspiration. The sea breeze can be soothing and relaxing – if you’re outdoors. Once indoors, however, you need a stable climate with low energy consumption and maximum comfort. Living right next to the sea can often mean drastic changes in the climate, which in turn places high demands on the climate systems of the residential buildings. The art is to maintain a perfect indoor climate regardless of weather.
Another challenge was the rebuilding of an older building into a hall for paddle tennis which meant that a new solution for ventilation was required. If the fan rooms are small and the entryways are narrow, as was the case here, it is important to find the right competence and the right products.
Customer's needs in focus
Swegon got to participate at an early stage and then from project start to commissioning. Many site visits were made together with the customer to ensure that all requirements and needs were met. During the visits, measurements were made and we began planning for the difficult intransport to the paddle tennis hall. Thanks to preliminary work, we were able to identify where the major challenges existed and present proposals accordingly. Swegon's technical department could then support during installation and commissioning, which gave full control in all stages. A solution with surface-efficient and high-performance units, high operational reliability and with the customer's needs in focus – That is Swegon's way of working.
