From industrial site to luxurious apartments and green meadow
The location of Tuborg Syd, which used to be an industrial site, is sure to give the new luxury apartments the best view of Copenhagen looking out over the sea on one side and a salt meadow which will be established on the other side. The project is designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg architects, and their aim was to create a design, which will stand the test of time with a robust beauty and an abundance of plant life both on roof gardens and on the facades of the buildings. The new residential area will consist of 323 apartments with a collective area of 53,500 m2 distributed on several unique buildings in a grand landscape of 100,000 m2. The buildings have great variation in heights and facade shapes creating distinctive light and shadow effect and a characteristic skyline.

New optimized delta-beams and more than 5000 facade brackets
Bakkedraget is part of Tuborg Syd and consists of three separate buildings. Bakkedraget will contain a total of 129 rental apartments distributed on 3-8 floors plus underground parking with a gross area of 18.600 m2. Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson was hired by NCC, who are the main contractors on the project, to do structural design and optimization, 3D modeling and workshop drawings/documentation for the main steel structure – delta beams and columns. In addition, K+I did 3D model and workshop drawings/documentation for the brackets supporting the concrete facade elements.
The three buildings have approximately 2,5 km of our optimized delta-beams weighing 285 tonnes plus 350 m columns weighing 30 tonnes.

The brackets alone weigh more than 63 tonnes, and the great variation in the facades means more than 5000 facade brackets with only few instances of each.

Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson has vast experience with design of steel structures and our team of steel experts has an in-depth knowledge of relevant codes of practice for design, fabrication and execution of steel structures, whether it is Eurocode, AISC or IBC. We proactively use this knowledge to ensure that our design is economically rational, simple to fabricate and safe to erect.
