Uninterrupted Construction Operations

Customer Case Facts

The construction site of the new headquarters for Novo Nordisk in Bagsvaerd was suffering from costly machine breakdowns – a case for Ramirent to solve.

Novo Nordisk and MT Højgaard
Novo Nordisk; a global healthcare company that manufactures and markets pharmaceutical products, is building new headquarters in Bagsvaerd, Denmark. The construction manager of the building project is the construction, civil engineering and refurbishment company MT Højgaard.

High Requirements For Energy Efficient And High Quality Machine Equipment
Novo Nordisk wanted to bring together around 1,100 employees in two new buildings with a total floor area of over 50,000 m2. The first sod was cut in August 2011 and the new headquarters is planned to be ready for use at the end of 2013. MT Højgaard has rented all the equipment from Ramirent during the building project.

“Novo Nordisk made a point of choosing energy efficient solutions to reduce the energy consumption. It was therefore important to work with a rental company that could match the high requirements for energy efficient and high quality machine equipment”, says Karsten Bæhrentzen, Project Manager at MTHøjgaard.

Optimizing The Rented Equipment And Services At Each Stage
MT Højgaard has rented a wide range of equipment from Ramirent; everything from heavy machinery to power and heating systems.

“MT Højgaard has, apart from renting all the equipment, fully used our site services including planning, erection, dismantling and transport of the scaffolding and weather covers. Together with the Safety Department in Denmark, we have been providing equipment and safety training for the use of equipment”, says René Tietze Sales Manager at Ramirent in Denmark.

Optimizing the equipment and services was an important part of the progress for Ramirent. “We have had a close follow up going through rental status to ensure that we provide the equipment accordingly to our customers demands”, says René Tietze.


Fun Partner That Improves Uptime
The benefits of renting the equipment from Ramirent were evident to MT Højgaard. “We are truly happy with the service they provided. Ramirent has great knowledge about rental equipment and we have had an open and honest dialogue throughout the project. They have been visiting us frequently at the construction site and helped us with any issues related to the rental equipment. Whenever we have needed a piece of equipment or machinery Ramirent has been providing us fast and easy, and if they were out of stock they offered us an alternative solution. Ramirent is great at finding alternative solutions. In fact, I have already recommended Ramirent to other companies!” says Karsten Bærentzen.

“Also I would like to give a thumbs up for Ramirent’s social engagement outside the construction site. My daughter and I participated in an event organized by Ramirent, biking around a lake and then going to a concert. I really enjoyed getting to know the Ramirent staff and had a great time!”
