50 council houses in low energy class 2015
The consulting company ALECTIA has won the project Møllebankerne in Borup, which includes 50 newly-built council houses for the housing association Boligselskabet Sjælland. The building is in low energy class 2015, indoor climate class A and the project has been won together with the turnkey contractor NCC Construction Danmark A/S and the architects Arkitema with a total tender price of DKK 72 millions.
The residential housing Møllebankerne in Borup at Køge consists of 50 council houses that will be built in low energy class 2015 and indoor climate class A. A heat pump system will be installed, where the heat is collected from a soil heating system, and in the community house solar cells will be installed.
The residents of the council houses will be part of a larger community, where the close and low terraced houses will form a wriggling movement encircling a large, shared green garden where the community house will be placed.
The houses are gathered in smaller groups of 5 houses, which are mutually displaced. In that way you are close to the community and you can choose the community in the shared garden or in the community house. Furthermore, a high degree of privacy and individuality is achieved in the private houses.
The houses look inviting with a simple white-washed façade with large windows that have been pulled slightly back from the façade. The white and inviting expression forms a good contrast to the coloured parts between the window sections on ground floor as well as on first floor.

In their report the jury wrote:
“The disposal of the site is distinctive and unique – most of the houses are placed along the border/on the margin. The open space in the middle is large and well-organized…….The project presents a very satisfactory Be10 calculation, just like the line loss is specified on a detailed drawing. The heat pumps are placed in the technical control room for the common supply of 2 housing blocks. There is one heat pump for room heat and another for domestic hot water. The houses are supplied with individual ventilation plants with noise reduction and with the heavy constructions, based on back walls of sand-lime bricks as well as windows with solar protection, a satisfactory indoor climate is anticipated. The community house has 20 m2 of solar cells ensuring the compliance of the energy frame with low energy class 2015.
