Kiruna's move25. august 2020
Husvik has been proud subcontractor, delivered timber prefabricated infill wall elements. This type of element is excellent thermal insulation which is increasingly stringent requirements for energy-efficient buildings. The prefabricated infill wall element system speeds up assembling on-site.
Husvik standard assembling service includes the montage of our elements, but this time Husvik professional montage team was monitoring the local assembling team for the montage process.
Kiruna located 145 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Swedish town of almost 22900 inhabitants is known to be home to one of the world’s largest iron mines – supplying 90% of Europe’s needs. To survive, the city needs to move away. It is a gradual and continuous work, which has already raised many questions on both the architectural and social fronts.
The new masterplan will utilize resources efficiently, harnessing the enormous amounts of waste heat generated by the mining activity, combined with wind turbines to generate energy and recycling infrastructure to reduce freight and waste. More about Kiruna: Research Book; The Arctic & Kiruna:
