​Since the summer of 2004, Peab has been working to build Helsingborg’s new police headquarters on commission of property company Norrporten. Located near the northern entrance ramp, motorists on their way to the centre have been able to follow the progress of construction. The building has six floors and room for 600 police employees.

Lindab has delivered to its customer Danogips outer wall joints for 2,400 m2 as well as facade and partition wall joints for a surface of approx. 12,000 m2. The Construline products resistance to rain and moisture played an important role when choosing the building components. In fact, the original wooden walls were substituted for the healthier, ergonomic steel stud solution at an early stage of the planning.

The consultant Byggteknik in Skåne was responsible for project planning of lightweight construction components. “Lightweight joints have a big advantage over wood due to their insensitivity to moisture,” says Håkan Mårtensson of Byggteknik in Skåne. “That is why Peab and Norrporten worked with us to switch from the system documentation’s wood joints to lightweight steel joints.”
