The building, which houses more than 800 employees, stands out as a prime example of a cutting-edge and environmentally friendly building, which combines the use of renewable energy with the maximum recovery of energy.
The circular building was designed by Lars Rath of White Arkitekter A/S and occupies a natural position in the undulating terrain with respect for the surrounding landscape.
Unique combination of eco-friendly technologies
A variety of energy-conserving and environment friendly measures based on new as well as more well-known methods makes the building unique.
The geothermal system, that uses groundwater as a heat reservoir to store an entire years’ worth of heating and cooling, is the first of its kind in Denmark. The system is very effective, reducing CO2 emissions by at least seventy percent compared to traditional heating systems.
The energy needs of the headquarters are considerable – not least because all Widex hearing aids are manufactured in the building. This is why Widex has also mounted a windmill at the premises which delivers more power annually than Widex uses in total. Not only does this make the headquarters completely CO2-neutral - it also allows Widex to deliver excess power to the electricity grid, providing a CO2-free contribution to the local area.
Other features of the building, such as solar cells and rainwater collection from the roof, also contribute in making the building environmentally friendly.
