Hørsholm Library

The new roof on Hørsholm Bibliotek (a library) consists of the climate-friendly DERBICOLOR Olivine membrane that helps to neutralize CO2, thus reducing global warming. It is the first time in Denmark that we have put Olivine in this volume, and since the renovation includes roof insulation quality and highly efficient solar cells, the overall result is a very environmentally friendly roof.

A better house than planned

Bjarne Rasmussen from the company Drivhuseffekten has been project manager at Hørsholm Bibliotek, and he was excited to collaborate with Primatag: - We know each other, and it has been characterized by cooperation - the result is a quality building, where we combine several different types of energy renovation: solar panels, insulation and eco-friendly DERBICOLOR Olivine membrane. Hørsholm Municipality is very pleased with the outcome, because they got a better solution than they had first imagined. The quality of the products and the less stress means that the roof lives longer, and in addition Hørsholm Municipality has gained a better annual production of the solar power plant than it originally was written in the conditions. We have selected and installed high-tech solar cells that are among the best in the world, and therefore produce more electricity.

Future-proof solutions

Both the roofer and the solar cell supplier emphasize that the construction period at Hørsholm Bibliotek has progressed very satisfactorily for all parties so that there both have been time for getting a decent and green project, while there has been thinking long term: - At the renovation is has been the developer’s interest to think far ahead. Hørsholm Bibliotek has used the best insulation on the market. In this type of projects you will usually use a traditional roofing coating, but when you can get a solution from Derbigum with proven durability and that simultaneously captures and neutralizes CO2, why not choose the environmentally friendly DERBICOLOR Olivine roof? In combination with solar cells, Hørsholm Bibliotek received a zero-energy result, because they will make money on the total energy account after ten years. So I have no doubt that we will come to see highly efficient energy renovations more and more in the future.
