Sustainability/ Targeting a BREEAM NOR Excellent and WELL Gold certification
K8 is a dynamic scheme for boosting the city of Stavanger’s ambitions for future urban developments. Located in the city’s central business district, K8 is a mixed-use office tower that will create a new benchmark for sustainable and creative work environments in Stavanger. Targeting BREEAM NOR Excellent and WELL Gold certifications, the project introduces a new public centre; a transformation of the existing park; and a new 16-floor tower containing 15,000-square-metres of flexible space for offices, restaurants, exhibitions, and conferences. The ground and top floors will be open to the public, ensuring a new unique meeting place in the city.
