Gottlieb Paludan Architects provides architectural expertise on a new climate-friendly waterworks and softener plant that will secure Frederiksberg’s future drinking water supply.
The new waterworks will replace an old worn-out plant and a softening plant will be added. The plot has a very limited size and is located in an urban context, which requires special focus on local adaptation of the building.
With the softener plant, the new waterworks will lower the water’s hardness from 22-30 dh to approx. 10 dh which will reduce limescale in water pipes and installations throughout the city. This will, in turn, lead to reduced energy consumption and thus a lower CO2 footprint.
The waterworks will be based on modern, high-quality technical solutions and will provide Frederiksberg with homogeneous, soft water from 2022. The new waterworks will be built on Frederiksberg Forsyning’s site at Stæhr Johansens Vej 38 and the project will commence in the spring of 2020.
The original heating system was also designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects in the 1970s and the firm has been responsible for all extensions and reconstructions since then.
