The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) has built a multimedia house in Ørestad in Copenhagen. COWI acted as client adviser to DR.

A new beginning

DR’s facilities for producing television and radio were previously spread throughout Copenhagen and its suburbs.

In an effort to streamline and prepare the organisation for future challenges in a highly competitive media market, DR decided to relocate to a new multimedia house in Ørestad, a new neighbourhood in Copenhagen.

The project comprises 125,000 m² in total with studios, workshops, administration and editorial offices, and storage facilities for more than 3000 employees. The project further includes a state-of-the-art concert hall designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

Interdisciplinary consultancy

The initial planning of the project started i 1999. The new multimedia house for DR was completed in 2007-2008.

COWI’s services comprise among other things:

• Building programme
• Planning and execution of interna
tional architectural competitions
• Environmental management
• Supervision during design, construction and handing-over.
