Design and ConstructionEdit
The Copenhagen-based practice Dissing+Weitling, as well as Norman Fosters studio in London were responsible for designing the hotel. It was constructed by Sjælsø. The furniture was bought from Paustian House and many eco-friendly solutions were integrated into the hotel construction. The construction started in 2007 and ended in 2009. The hotel opened on 16 November that same year.
Besides being the first carbon dioxide neutral hotel in Denmark, Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is also the first Danish hotel to sign the United Nations Global Compact, implementing socially responsible policies. The hotel gets its energy from renewable sources, including Northern Europe's largest solar park integrated into the hotel’s façade, it uses Denmark's first groundwater-based cooling and heating system.
