On Thursday 27 October, the municipality of Växjö awarded this year's prize in the categories Wooden Construction and Construction. Micropower Group, together with three other actors, was nominated for this year's Construction Award for our battery factory in the Nylanda area, Växjö.
Unfortunately, there was no award for Micropower, and instead we send a big congratulations to BiWi Bygg, who took home the Construction Award for their semi-detached house in Öja. Congratulations.
Micropower is proud and grateful for the nomination and would like to thank Växjö municipality and also the actors around us who made the battery factory possible, i.a. Arkitektbolaget (architect) and GBJ Bygg (construction contractor).
"Beneficial when, in connection with industrial exploitations, you choose to work with design, site adaptation and material selection, which is unusual today. The office building has good proportions, scale, material feel and attraction. Low ceilings with sedum, abundant green plantings that feel wild and free, beautiful pond with rainwater which is also followed up with the interior. You feel both welcome and valuable in this environment. Large-scale volumes are difficult to manage, but here it is done in a way that is attractive and for more companies to follow.”
