  • KKA uses BIM Revit for all projects. When designing in 3D, the quality and the collaboration with other consultants is streamlined. To date we have completed over twenty projects using BIM software. Other programs we use are Google SketchUp, AutoCAD, 3dStudioMAX, Derob-LTH. All software is of the latest version and from original software providers.

    Due to our high profile in sustainability, Autodesk has chosen us as a “Cleantech Partner” which means that we will support them in their efforts to develop Revit.

  • In the early design phase many decisions are made that affect a project’s energy consumption. A poor volume factor and a design concept with generous glazed areas can be difficult and costly to improve in the later stages of the design. Therefore we often make energy calculations ourselves in the early stages of our projects. KKA uses the following software for our energy calculations:
    Derob-LTH 2.0; one of the most accurate software products on the market. Developed by Texas University and Lund University. It makes dynamic simulations in 3D environment for all types of buildings throughout the world.

    Energihuskalkyl; a basic program where we make quick calculations of the energy usage and effect for buildings in Sweden. It is used to certify Swedish Passive Houses.

  • A Passive house is an extremely well insulated building that is mostly heated by energy already available in the building. People and household appliances generate large amounts of energy. KKA has designed approximately twenty passive houses, of which five are built.

    Joakim Kaminsky is a SITAC certified Passive House Builder at the advanced level.

  • BREEAM BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) is the leading and most widely deployed sustainability certification in the world, for buildings and urban plans. It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building’s environmental performance.

    Kjellgren Kaminsky Architcture is the first architectural firm in Sweden that has designed a renovated building as a certified BREEAM project with the level of: Very Good.

    Fredrik Kjellgren is responsible for project planning with BREEAM certification.
