The Mall of Scandinavia will officially open in November this year. It will have 230 stores with a total area of 100,000 square metres spread over three floors, as well as several restaurants and an 11-screen cinema. The mall, which is close to the Swedish national football arena, Friends Arena in Stockholm, will be the largest shopping centre in Scandinavia.
Sustainability has been a high priority throughout the project, from design and planning to production and tenants’ leases. To meet the strict environmental requirements most of the food retailers have chosen refrigeration systems from Green & Cool.
“We didn’t have any active marketing input in this case. Many of the installers already knew of us, but in most cases it seems to have been the tenants themselves who came to the conclusion that our solutions are the best,” says Kent Hofmann, Sales Engineer at Green & Cool.
The Mall of Scandinavia is one of a handful of shopping centres in Europe to have been given an Excellent rating under the BREEAM system. The environmental assessment scheme is the most widely used in Europe and provides a comprehensive rating of the environmental performance of buildings.
