Modernization and expansion of Højboskolen. This is an extensive project where communication spaces, common areas, classrooms are just some of the areas that the school will open in 2023. The team behind the project is NERD architects with COWI as the qualification process. The project is running in stages and is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
About this project
With the new extension, Højboskolen will become a large school with everything from beautiful bright classrooms, communication rooms, to common areas with beautiful decor. The extension is a completely new construction, and the renovation takes place in the same construction period which runs over 3 years (2020 – 2023). The project has been mentioned in several media due to its size and the ambitions for the school to be seen as a meeting point for many new students as well as existing students.

Lumega has been responsible for most of the lighting for the project. The comprehensive installation will include our energy efficient NS60 LED luminaire, which with integrated smart sensor technology ensures a significant energy saving compared to fluorescent tubes. With Lumega’s solution, the lamps talk to each other and keep the necessary lux-level. They make sure to measure the daylight incidence. In addition, we have included wireless switches in the delivery, which can communicate directly with the lamps’ smart sensor system. It is important for Lumega to have a close dialogue with the electrical contractor to ensure that the installation of the lighting fixtures is as simple as possible. Therefore, we have included Winsta Wago connectors and have our factory install this. Thus, the electrical contractor saves significant time during installation and keeps the numbers positive. Lumega supplies almost 800 lighting fixtures in three stages.
Lighting for schools
There are many older schools that need new lighting. The older fluorescent tubes can disturb the attention of the students. With the latest LED technology, Lumega can create a better well-being of students and teachers, but at the same time increase comfort significantly. It has been proven that with circadian lighting, the work efficiency can be raised up to 19%. This also means that the attention increases significantly.
Lumega is always ready with the latest LED technology for your construction project and with 7 years of experience in lighting for schools, we can help with everything from professional design, planning and optimization in relation to energy efficiency, management principles etc. All in respect of existing electrical installation, so the smallest interventions can be made.
