C.F. Møller receives a royal award for fine results in Sweden
31.5.2017 | On 30 May, the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Esben Lunde Larsen, awarded the Danish Export Association's Diploma and HRH Prince Henrik's Medal of Honour to C.F. Møller's subsidiary in Sweden. The architectural practice received the award for fine export results in the Swedish market, where C.F. Møller is behind several innovative and sustainable construction projects.
Since it was established in 2007, C.F. Møller's office in Sweden has achieved a number of interesting projects, drawing on both Danish and Swedish experience, which has generated revenue growth. Among other things, the company has implemented several sustainable solutions in the city of Stockholm.
"For example, C.F. Møller has designed Värtahamnen's new ferry terminal, the Värtaterminal, which is the central hub for Sweden's ferry links to Finland and the Baltic countries. The result is a floating transition between central Stockholm and the port area with cranes and warehouse halls, e.g using the terminal's roof as a green landscape, with a promenade, which also creates a whole new quarter of the city," says Ambassador Ove Ullerup from the Danish Embassy in Sweden.
Sustainability and cooperation safeguarding the future
In future, C.F. Møller will continue its sustainable approach to winning projects in Sweden and the rest of the world.
"We'll continue the positive development, drawing on experience from our strong portfolio within landscape, urban development and architecture. We work according to a set of Nordic values, whereby our offices in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the UK share experience across national borders to create synergy and use the best experience as the basis for modern and innovative architecture," says Mårten Leringe, architect, partner and CEO at C.F. Møller in Stockholm
C.F. Møller has several projects on the way in Sweden. They include a number of residential projects with focus on sustainable timber construction, where the company also contributes to research in the area under the "Tall Timber Buildings" project in collaboration with Lineé University in Växjö.
