Elioth’s contribution to the project has been exclusively focussed on the two aspects of microclimatic comfort in public spaces and the energy master planning. The project’s intention is to be in line with the highest standards of sustainability and go on with the innovative way to “make” the city, as a second step of the Hammarby initiative.

The engineering process was not a “stand alone” analysis, but it was driven threw the project beside the architectural and landscaping decision. We have this way been able to influence the massing and the park three distribution to maximize the solar passive resources and the wind protection. After a first “4 seasons” approach, we went deeper into the wind analysis for mid-seasonal situation where wind can really affect the draft temperature (Stockholm summer is “naturally comfortable” and winter is too severe to expect comfort).

The engineering approach developed during this early phase project has shown the interest for microclimatic design in order to optimize the massing and the outdoor conditions. The typology analysis will help the urban planner in defining some constraints and potential for the future building designers. Despite the northern climate, we have shown that the Swedish target for a ~65% renewable mix is possible locally going beyond the Swedish energy target for 2020 (energy production @50% renewable) but conditioning some specific investments.  One of the major inputs for the project orientation is the opportunity for a new generation low temperature district network.
