Among the features contributing to the comfort of patients and doctors are NEVA Z-90 blinds in agate grey with silver accessories with tones of bronze. We are delivering 825 blinds for the first phase of construction, which are to be installed into the façade between the window panes and therefore will face high temperatures during summer. That is why we have added special Geiger T90 motors, which can handle temperature ranges as wide as -20°C to 90°C.
The architect took the environment and the building’s energy demands into account when designing the Malmö hospital, striving to attain an environmental building certificate.
The first patients will probably be accepted in 2025.
The highlights of the hospital include glass elements and greenery – the complex is situated within a city park and several façades are complemented by vertical and horizontal greenery.
