Rånåsfoss power station, situated in the municipality of Nes, east of Viken in Norway, is a special building for several reasons. It tells a long history that visitors will soon be able to learn about at a museum in the same building. The Vintage windows that preserve original character of the building, and thus its history, were supplied by Sapa through fabricator NorDan.
When Olav Kyrres Gate 22 was in need of renovation there was a clear desire to do this sympathetically. Some parts of the building had to be preserved, while new elements such as a glazed facade would enhance the project. The result was a more open and welcoming space that also reflects a lot of history. Sapa supplied the glazed roof and facade for the project through the fabricator, Time Aluminium AS.
Næringslivets Hus was one of the first buildings in Stavanger to have glazed exterior walls. When the time came to renovate the building there was one clear ambition: to ensure there was no obvious difference between the new and the old exterior. Sapa supplied the aluminium windows and glazed facades for the project through Time Aluminium AS.
The brief was to transform the former supermarket into a modern and welcoming shopping centre that would bring vibrancy to the quarter and the town as a whole. The Galleria Gallionen project in Uddevalla involved many different aspects, from restoration to commercial values and urban planning. By carefully converting the building into a more contemporary commercial centre by using large areas of glazing, the site has gained a new lease of life and a totally new appearance. The glazing elements were all supplied by Sapa through its fabricator, Preconal.
Do you remember your math teacher? Or do you remember the actual classroom? According to modern studies, the environment is just as important as the teacher when it comes to education. Health, concentration and results are all factors with major improvement thanks to a modern environment containing lots of natural light. A successful example of this is the S-house in Halmstad University, and the building achieved the certification Miljöbyggnad Silver.
There are many reasons why we should always think of restoration when it comes to “new” projects. One is the historical value of a building, we can learn a lot from old buildings in terms of history, architecture, design and the old way of living. Another reason is sustainability. We must be considerate to the resources we already have, and make sure we contribute to a circular economy.
