Abels Hus is bringing the Teknobyen office and research complex nearer completion, as only phase 5 remains.
The first new building in Teknobyen, the Teknobyen Innovation Centre – also designed by NSW – was completed in 2002.
Abels Hus is rapidly changing its external appearance, as the cladding panels are now being hoisted in place in record time. The prefabricated aluminum and glass panels have been produced in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The panels arrive on site as wall elements, complete with external and internal finishes and with integrated glass elements. The planning module of 0,6 m has enabled the production of a variety of panels, providing a good mix of solids and voids in the façade. All elements apart from the corner units are 2,4 m wide and stretch the full floor height. This way of assembly facilitates a water and weather tight enclosure much faster than traditional building.
