The building's climate impact can be reduced through a thoughtful design process
In a report Tove Malmqvist, researcher at KTH, states that tenant customization has an equal climate impact as operational energy consumption.
"In collaboration with Vasakronan, a detailed case study of a tenant customization project for an office has been conducted. The study reveals that the climate impact from interior refurbishment, tenant customization, and furniture replacement over the building's lifespan can be of similar magnitude as the climate impact from operational energy consumption.
The case study also revealed that the tenant customization of the building's two floors resulted in waste on the order of 70 kg per m² of renovated office space. The added materials amounted to 64 kg per m². This indicates that waste management, production, and transportation of added materials have a significant climate impact, and that interior furnishings and furniture can even have an equal climate impact as the production of new walls, floors, and ceilings.
Office spaces in attractive locations are more frequently and extensively subject to tenant customization, resulting in even higher climate impact.
The study highlights the importance of changing attitudes and fostering collaboration among architects, property owners, and tenants to increase reuse and make sustainable interior choices that align with ongoing initiatives in the EU, such as the circular economy and resource efficiency in the construction sector.
The study emphasizes that an architect can already plan a building from the beginning to reduce the building's climate impact associated with material production, whether it is integrated into the building from the start or if materials need to be replaced in later stages."
