The newly renovated congress center opened in November 2018 and offers 23 conference rooms, a congress hall with room for 990 people, and banquet facilities for 700 diners. Borås is located in southern Sweden, in the middle of Scandinavia, and the Congress House will function as a meeting place for the many international visitors to the city.

One of the challenges on site was the size and capacity of the kitchen, to be able to cook for 1000 guests. Renovation often proves to be more challenging than building completely new houses, and in this case the kitchen has a particularly low ceiling height, which limited the implementation of the kitchen ventilation. Careful design and optimization of the dimensions of the room were important factors for a well-functioning positioning of the hood, while maintaining the working-height at a suitable level.

“We are satisfied with the great contact and the products are of really good quality.”

Our professional kitchen ventilation solutions were chosen for their efficiency; the degree of grease removal and cleaning ability that met the high requirements. The ventilation contractor, Bertil Hansen, Elektrokyl Energiteknik AB, felt that he received support from both Climecon and our Swedish distributor Bevent Rasch. “We are satisfied with results of the large scale project and the products are of really good quality,” says Bertil.

Tomas Jeppson from Bevent Rasch stated that the client was also particularly pleased with how easy the equipment was to install. Project management and communication during construction were also praised. “Climecon set up a portal where we could communicate the solutions, and the platform provided the parties with a common basis for efficient version management and for looking at the latest designs,” says ventilation consultant Per Andersson from Entreprenadplanering AB.
