Three JAJA Projects Featured on Low CO2 Emission List

We are very happy to see three of our projects on BUILD – Department of the Built Environment 4til1 planet’s cases with low CO2 emissions. The three projects are MINI CO2 Multi-storey House in Wood and the two Almenbolig+ projects Wooden Houses Jyllinge and Store Solvænget.

Based on a ‘standardized variation’, Almenbolig+ represents an efficient prefabricated system allows great flexibility in design possibilities and is designed with great attention to economy and production.

Tømmergården, Jyllinge represents 35 wooden houses ranging between 95-130 m². The houses are divided into seven clusters containing five homes each, clad in black-stained oak. Caracterised by their distinctive large roofs, the houses slope down in relation to the surrounding green landscape. Go to the project page

Store Solvænget contains 66 family homes in 2-4 storeys and range in size from 56 – 108 m2. Designed in four blocks, they surround a shared courtyard environment and feature small private gardens and roof terraces, as well as a community centre. Go to Almenbolig+ project page.

The Almenbolig + projects are made in collaboration with ONV, KABScandi BygCOWI,

Serving as a model of how the construction industry can reduce its carbon emissions, the Mini CO2 project introduces new solutions to optimizing wood’s many properties.

With the project, we combine the benefits of using a column/beam system with the use of prefabrication. Our column wall elements make it possible to place a whole column row with one lift instead of four (and without adjusting various plasterboard walls afterwards). The ribbed decks developed for the project ensure, the beams are raised together with a thin CLT board and acoustic ceiling insulation with a finished plasterboard ceiling underneath. This way, it is ready for the upper floor construction and painting of the ceilings.
