In Horsens, Denmark they now have a brand new VIA University College Campus at 35,000 m2 that will house 2900 students at 21 educations.

Energy optimization with balancing

BROEN supplied a package of valves, piping and fittings for the modern building and we have supported the consultant and installer in selecting the correct valves and carried out the commissioning process to make certain that the system is operating optimally from day 1 without using unnecessary energy.

Early entry to the project

”VIA Campus Horsens is a school example of how we want to make a value-based collaboration with the other parties in the construction. Communication, mutual respect and an early entry to the process have all played a vital role as to how well the project went.

Wicotec Kirkebjerg makes an early decision that they want to work with us which means that we can have a good dialogue with the consulting engineer Ramboll as to how we best equip the installation with balancing valves so that it will work in terms of controlling and balancing.

All in all the process has been perfect from my point of view for a complex construction case like VIA Campus Horsens”

”I only know BROEN for quality products and I did not experience more product errors than you would expect on large projects like this one. Minor product errors were detected before test day during the first balancing so that we could replace the valves.

I see great value in BROEN being a part of the project in the construction phase so that valve selection etc. will be correct and according to the project material. In terms of equipment I would like to point out that a meeting between consultant and supplier on behalf of the installer is very valuable for the process.

In addition to this the technical ”know how” about your products means a lot, in particular during test/commissioning where it is a great advantage that you do the balancing yourself”

”We chose to work with BROEN as we wanted a system supplier of high quality, delivery safety and competitive prices. We have only seen very few product errors and at VIA Campus in Horsens thousands have been installed.

Assembly and adaptation of pipes, valves etc. went well and in general the BROEN products are in good quality.

The cooperation with BROEN and support from them in relation to the VIA Campus construction has been amazing, in particular around balancing, testing and operation which is a large subtask at a construction project this size.

Good skills, flexibility and great technical sparring by good and decent people are keywords and theme here.

Overall, it has been a good experience to work with BROEN and it is always a nice feeling to hand over a well-functioning heating system to the customer”
