In 2013, Adven converted Kista One, one of the largest office buildings in the Stockholm suburb of Kista, from district to local geothermal heating and cooling. Adven’s role in the project was to convert the property from traditional heating to green geothermal heating. Areim’s ambition has been to lower their energy consumption and to keep long-term control over their energy costs.

As a result of the switch of energy source, the building energy input has now been reduced by up to 75 percent and has given Areim the possibility to keep a good overview over their energy costs.

Thanks to the changing of energy source, as of February 2014, Kista One has achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ) certification Gold. The demand of the environmental property certifications is rising and is crucial for increasing property value and to attract large tenants.
