The Marble Pier

The Marble Pier is a jointly-delivered project by Ramboll and Henning Larsen for AP Pension. 

At eight storeys and 36 meters tall, and covering 28,000 square metres, the Marble Pier will be one of the largest timber buildings ever constructed in Denmark and home to some of the most sustainable offices built with existing technology. 

The building will save 9,500 tonnes carbon emissions, as compared with a similar building made of concrete. Of that, 3,000 tonnes are avoided emission by using timber instead of concrete, and 6,500 tonnes emissions are sequestered by the timber. 

Ramboll and Henning Larsen Architects, alongside the contractor Hoffmann, are the sole project designers for the Marble Pier, responsible for the multidisciplinary project from concept to construction and full life cycle assessment. 

The Marble Pier is expected to receive the highest possible sustainability accreditations for buildings, namely, LEED, DGNB Platinum and Diamond; and the well-being certification WELL Platinum. 

Located in a pier side development in Copenhagen, Denmark, construction of the Marble Pier began in 2021 and is expected to be completed by 2024. 

The construction sector accounts for 40% of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Ramboll is one of the leading engineering firms working with timber, helping lower the carbon footprint of conventional construction and sequestering carbon in buildings.
