Better Energy Charging Station, Denmark

This solid timber structure of a futuristic charging station with an incredible green roof represents a rethinking of the mobility experience, providing motorists with quality spaces and services.


Ergodomus, contracted by Better Energy, proudly designed the entire facility providing complete structural analysis and design, as well as production drawings.

The structural design was not solely limited to reducing the size of the elements and materials. It also covers minimizing waste, rationalizing assembly time, optimizing working hours, and thus reducing overall costs.

This type of structure, which aims to facilitate a rethinking of transportation and charging, is completely made of timber, one of the most sustainable building materials, and it encompasses any initiative that exemplifies greener mobility.

Cooperation and Design

Since the beginning of the project, Ergodomus has worked closely with the architects and design team from Effekt.

The productive cooperation of our engineering team and the Effect architects played an important role in the decision to use timber as the sole material of this charging station, prioritizing sustainability over less environmentally friendly building materials while maintaining the overall vision of the project.

With a strong emphasis on design, timber has proven to be the ideal solution. By opting for wood, we were able not only to achieve our design goals, but also to ensure a sustainable approach that reflects the values of both companies.

Our commitment and attention to even the smallest details can be seen in the design of the grain direction. It was studied and analyzed not only to be visually attractive, but also to optimize the nesting of the arcs by giving them a certain shape.
