​Standing 110 metres tall, The Point will be the new landmark in Malmö, Sweden. Being built by Annehem in the Hyllie district, the building will boast some of the most spectacular office premises in Sweden. COWI has been commissioned for technical design and BREEAM certification.

​The building will be the tallest office building in the Öresund Region and is part of Point Hyllie – one of the most spectacular projects in the Skåne Region and the starting point of Malmö’s new city district, Hyllie.

The first two stages, both comprising offices, shops and restaurants, have been completed, and construction of the third, hotel stage is now under way. The fourth and final stage relates to the tallest building in Point Hyllie.

The Point is a building of 25,000 square metres over 28 floors, and occupation is planned for 2017.

Securing sustainability

COWI has been entrusted with technical design and BREEAM certification for the building. Constructing high-rise buildings in a sustainable way poses certain challenges. The key is to find the optimum technical design with regard to surface efficiency and production economy.

Moreover, The Point’s proximity to the Malmö City Tunnel also presents huge challenges when it comes to laying the foundations.

An inspiring win for COWI

“It is inspiring to be involved in what is one of Malmö’s most interesting projects right now. Also, it’s particularly nice to have won the contract thanks to the collective expertise that COWI has worldwide, especially in co-operation with our colleagues in Denmark. At the same time it is a challenging assignment, and the key is to deliver the optimum solution in terms of technical design,” says Jan Lövgren, Project Director at COWI.

“We are delighted to be entrusted with such a large, complex project in Hyllie, which is one of the Öresund Region’s most expansive districts,” says Håkan Adelwald, Senior Vice President for Buildings at COWI.

The architects for The Point are Krook & Tjäder.
