Monitoring Report 2017

The monitoring report is an appendix to the Sustainability Report and present monitors results for the requirements set for property developers, and for the City’s own work. The report is divided into two sections: one for property developers (pages 38–55), and one for public open space (pages 56–70). The requirements are based on the Stockholm Royal Seaport’s sustainability targets and include a presentation of the results for energy, the Green Space Index, waste, transport, materials and the indoor environment.

About the City of Stockholms monitoring

The City sets requirements for the planning and production of buildings and public open space in Stockholm Royal Seaport. The requirements are gathered in an action plan and the City

has developed a working process to steer, guide and ensure the quality of the requirements during planning, construction and management. The requirements are governing and monitored regularly. Any deviations must be motivated.

The developers are monitored at five different occasions, from the very early programming of building to two years after occupancy. The monitoring is conducted in close dialogue with the property developers, the Citys planners and contracts, and the data is audited by the City. Deviations are handled in accordance with the Citys procedures, and a web-based tool is used to facilitate the monitoring of property developers.

Results for property developers

Stockholm Royal Seaport is being developed and constructed in phases, from the subarea of Hjorthagen to Värtahamnen, and lastly to Loudden. Sites are allocated either directly or in competitions, and the land is either sold or transferred as a leasehold property.

The action plan that gathers all requirements is appended to each site allocation contract and development agreement and are binding. They include levels for energy performance, stormwater management and green structure, waste management, transport, indoor environment and choice of materials.

Monitoring of property developers is first carried out in conjunction with the early parallel design process. The requirements are monitored at all stages, from programme documentation until two years after occupancy, although the degree of detail varies.

The monitoring means that we are doing our utmost to evaluate our work and meet the high standards. This close dialogue with the City also helps to increase the engagement of everyone involved in the project.

Results public open space

The City Development Administration is responsible for the planning and construction of streets, squares and parks. This is carried out in close cooperation with the administrations and companies responsible for operation and maintenance. Stockholm Royal Seaport is being developed and constructed in phases. At present, 11 contracts are in various stages in different development phases.

The action plan for public open space includes climate-change adaptation, energy and ecocycle systems, transport and material choices. To create the best conditions for property developers to achieve the ambitious sustainability targets, key principles are identified at early stages, such as the integration of transport when planning the urban structure.

During the design stage, the action plans general requirements are reformulated into tender specifications. To ensure the requirements are met, continuous monitoring is carried out during the design stage, as well as regular environmental inspections during the construction stage, and some contracts are audited.
