artificial light use
skylights built into the roof reflect sunlight into
the building using a reflective film, the first
of its kind in the world. The lanterns direct daylight
into the buildings as long as there is daylight.
In Umeň, close to the Arctic Circle, there can be
daylight around the clock. This means that nice,
soft daylight is used to its full extent and the
need for electric lighting is reduced.
the spaces with daylight from windows or skylights
the electric lighting is steered by demand, i.e.
when the available daylight drops below a given
level it is supplemented by electrical illumination.
All lighting in less frequented rooms is controlled
by motion sensors. Shortly after everyone has left
the room the lights are turned off automatically
which minimizes the waste resulting from "forgotten"
GREEN CABLES CAN BE RECYCLED
All wires and cables are so-called green cables
which means they are free of halogen and PVC and

-CONTROLLED BLOCK HEATER OUTLETS
The employee parking lot is equipped with time and
temperature-controlled block heater outlets. Starting
a warm engine results in lower hazardous emissions.
in the block heater outlets automatically control
the heaters' energy supply in relation to the outdoor
temperature. The driver sets the time when the car
is to be used again and, depending on how cold it
is, the length of time that the heater runs is adjusted
to ensure the engine is sufficiently warm when the
driver needs it. Moreover, the block heater outlets
are prepared to charge electric cars of the future.
