Acoustic solutions for BREEAM-certified buildings

How Troldtekt contributes to a BREEAM certification

Under BREEAM, points are earned for  factors such as wood from sustainable forestry and for the responsible production of the cement used in the Troldtekt acoustic panels.

Troldtekt contributes positively to the BREEAM-certification of buildings and, together with Ramboll Group, has made ready-to-use “pdf-packages” with thorough documentation for BREEAM-assessors for the relevant BREEAM-criteria.

Below, you will find a list of the BREEAM-criteria for which Troldtekt contributes with points and for which auditors can be given documentation. The list is based on BREEAM International. Be aware that some criteria require product- and project-specific data.

Please note:
Troldtekt’s documentation for the criteria listed below contains confidential information and this will therefore only be given to assessors.

Good acoustics in Norway’s Archives

Sustainability is a key element in the design of Archive House in Stavanger with a goal of creating a sustainable building with a high quality, low energy consumption, and a low CO2 footprint.

The ceilings as well as several walls are cladded with Troldtekt acoustic panels which tie the areas together, absorb noise and create the ideal quiet environment for socialising and work.

The building has been awarded BREEAM Excellent certification, evaluating the project based on environmental performance ranging from health and environment to energy, transport, material use and ecology.
