Ellebo Garden Rooms, Ballerup, Denmark
When KAB (a Copenhagen non-profit public housing authority) hired Ramboll to plan a complete renovation of the housing area “Ellebo”, Ramboll advised KAB to prescribe a SiteCover solution already in the tender material. Keeping water out of the existing flats, as new flats were added on the roof, was essential for the project to succeed.
There is an average of 40 weather delay days a year in Denmark, where it is impossible to work on site. Weather delay days are expensive for the client, especially on a construction project like this, that runs for 2½ years and through multiple winters. With SiteCover we can work 365 days a year.

First of all we save expenses on rental cranes. Sitecover comes with 2 build-in cranes, each with a lifting capacity of 12 ton. Secondly, the cover does not only allow us to work in any kind of weather, it also saves us the expenses of heating and drying out the construction after exposure to rain or snow.
