BIM – Digital transformation in practice

By Henrik Bengtsson, February 07 2018

While the term digitalisation often comes across as a bit abstract, the digital transformation in companies like Lindab is both real and concrete. Building information modelling, BIM, for example is a methodology that is revolutionizing the way new buildings are planned and constructed.

Constructing a modern building is a complex process full of potential pitfalls. If the various members in a project fail to find a common understanding, the entire venture risks taking more time than expected and costing more money than estimated. This is true regardless if we are talking about the construction of a private house, a school or a commercial building.

A certified step towards sustainability

By Torbjörn Bruzelius, January 31 2018

Lindab has managed to fulfil the highest criteria and is now certified by Eurovent for our duct systems Lindab Safe and Lindab Safe Click. I hope this recognition of our work will raise the overall production standards of ventilation and take us one step closer to a more sustainable future.

According to the EU, buildings are responsible for 40 per cent of all energy consumption in the member states. Ventilation is one important contributing factor and in any building, whether it be a school, a commercial property or a private house, the ventilation system constitutes approximately 30 per cent of the total energy consumption. Even though ventilation requires energy to work, poorly functioning systems often lead to unnecessarily high consumption. Duct systems that have not been assembled in a correct manner or fittings that do not fit are reoccurring problems that result in air leakage and high costs.

Lower your energy consumption using ultrasound

By Torbjörn Bruzelius, October 04 2017

Ventilation constitutes 30 per cent of a building’s total energy consumption. Investing in a ventilation system using new ultrasound technology will help you cut operating costs and help reach the EU’s target of reducing energy consumption by 20 per cent by 2020.

If we are to limit human impact on the Earth’s climate, several things need to be done. In 2007, EU leaders agreed on a set of goals. One of these was to reduce energy consumption in the member states by 20 per cent by the year 2020.

The increased focus on climate has inspired companies and industries to start developing new solutions that will help reach the targets. Lindab is no exception and by working to minimize air leakage and to optimize the ventilation systems we can make a lasting difference.

Let nature improve your indoor climate

By Martin Wiebicke, September 13 2017

Rising energy costs are increasing the demand for alternative energy sources, and is also proving to be a driving force for innovation. In the competitive market of air conditioning systems a new highly effective way of handling ventilation, cooling and heating is currently challenging traditional solutions.

Having a comfortable indoor climate is essential to the well-being of most people. Regardless if it’s a hot summer day or a freezing winter day, if we are working in the office or spending time at home, we all want comfortable room temperatures.

Chilled beams - a cool solution for hot summer days

By Martin Wiebicke, June 29 2017

During summertime, the cost of cooling rises. Installing active chilled beams in your building helps you cut costs. Since chilled beam systems are maintenance free, the installation will also save you money over time.

While most of us appreciate the warmer temperatures during this time of the year, no one likes to pay the electrical bill after a hot summer. In most cases the cost of cooling a residential building or an office increases in the summertime. For a larger company, that means big money.

Who are the unnoticed heroes protecting your health?

By Egon Venko, April 27 2017

They should be as small and thin as possible, and carefully hidden so that no one notices them. Nevertheless, they constantly prevent us from breathing polluted air in our homes and workplaces.

With these components being hidden, we also tend to forget maintaining them. Or occasionally replacing them whenever they’ve been worn out. But just as they have a tremendous positive impact on our health when functioning properly, not replacing ineffective ones has a negative impact – on both the energy bill and the indoor air quality.   

But what are these small, yet essential parts, that goes unnoticed? Well, it’s the air filtration. Hidden in your ventilation system. Day in and day out, these brave little soldiers protect you from breathing polluted air – providing fresh air to indoor areas, and enabling you to stay healthy and sound.

Money floods out of our buildings

By Johan Rasmussen, February 28 2017

You hear about it all the time. The excessive energy consumption in the modern world, and the impact this has on our planet. Suddenly, global warming isn’t some rare thing that only meteorologists talk about; on the contrary, it’s something that everyone can relate to. Nowadays, we all understand (well, except some billionaire presidents) that it’s an urgent matter for us to turn things around and reduce our consumption of natural resources.

What does ultra sound and Internet of Things has to do with ventilation?

By Torbjörn Bruzelius, November 30 2016

Airflow_UltraSound_640.jpg

The mankind has experienced tremendous evolutions throughout the history. We got from horses to cars, from theatre to television, from letters to telephone and from records to streaming. Now another evolution takes place within the ventilations industry and even though the headline of this blog may seem like a difficult question, the answer is much more logical and valuable than it may seem at first. Over the past 5 years, the world has seen an increasing number of energy efficiency polices. These, combined with an increasing focus on indoor air quality, raise a demand for new technologies that can help optimize air quality and at the same time reduce energy consumption in buildings. This is where ultrasound and Internet of Things (IOT) becomes part of the picture.

What is BIM?

By Jan Behrens, August 19 2016

There are probably as many perceptions of Building Information Modelling (BIM), as there are BIM users – or aspirants. Why is that? Probably because the all-embracing idea of BIM relates to so many different stakeholders and provide specific benefits to each of them. So, what really is BIM?
