Degree of Freedom has designed the timber construction for the Lunner healthcare building in Harestua on behalf of Aaneslands Limtre, the supplier of the glulam and CLT structure.
The building contains 48 institutional places and twelve care homes in addition to a café, a conservatory, a fitness room, a sensory garden, a kitchen, and activity rooms.
The new building will answer diverse needs in the provision of health and care services. This will provide increased quality and improve patient and user safety.
This modern building will also help the municipality to provide a service that is better adapted to an individual’s needs. It will give a boost to the sector and contribute to a future-oriented and comprehensive offer to the municipality’s residents.
In the preliminary stage, the architect studied the possibility of using timber as the main building material. The use of timber is advantageous both in terms of price, construction time, indoor environment, and CO2 footprint. Therefore, the support system is mainly made of timber, with a number of exposed walls. In addition, it supports the area’s identity and expression. The buildings are designed to meet the energy requirements in TEK 17 and achieve energy label A.
Degree of Freedom has, in addition to performing regular structural engineering tasks, prepared a complete BIM model for the load-bearing structure with the degree of detail LOD/MMI-400. This means that all timber details are incorporated in the model, including tolerances, so that the timber supplier can fabricate directly from the model.
