World’s Largest indoor gokart-track is built in Taastrup, Denmark
Gråkjær will be building 10.000 m2 go-kart track for Racehall near Copenhagen. It will have room for lots of fun – and care for the environment.
Racehall has signed a contract with Gråkjær about construction of the worlds largest indoor go-kart track. Racehall already owns the largest indoor go-kart track in Northern Europe (measured by driving area). It is located in Aarhus. With its 10.050 m2 the new hall in Copenhagen will be over 33% bigger than the one in Aarhus and is also bigger than race tracks in the rest of the world.
Racehall will be located in Høje Taastrup. “We have chosen this location in Høje Taastrup, as we get a central location – close to Copenhagen and close to both highway and public transportation” says Flemming Thomsen, Project manager at Racehall CPH.
“At Racehall there will be fun and action for everyone – both children and adults and companies as well. Besides the go kart track we will have a restaurant and conference facilities in the building. “We will have opportunity to use the hall for a long range of arrangements” Flemming Thomsen continues.
Thought of environment and energy
Gråkjær constructs 10.050 m2 arched roof hall formed by gluelam beams and with façade in sandwich panels. Besides, a 2.000 m2 administration building will be constructed. It will also contain a restaurant on the 2nd floor. Administration building will be built of concrete elements. “The concrete elements will be Ferrari-red to signal speed and action” says Thomas Lauritsen, regional sales manager at Gråkjær Erhverv. The project is drawn by Dreyer Architects and Gråkjær.
Various considerations are made to the environment and the surroundings in the construction of Racehall.
“The building will have solar panels on the roof. They will ensure climate-friendly energy for the hall. Outside, a flowery meadow and a SuDS pond” Thomas Lauritsen recounts. “The SuDS pond will accumulate the rainwater from the building, so Racehall do not put pressure on the municipal drainage system. The water will seep naturally into the ground and give life to plants and fauna. The flowery meadow with a range of wild flowers will attract insects and thus enhance the wildlife. Besides, it will be beautiful Thomas Lauritsen concludes.
