About the tower

Panum-tårnet i luftperspektiv

Construction started in 2012 and the official inauguration took place on 18 January 2017.

The Panum complex has grown from 105,000 square metres to 140,000 square metres. First, 7,700 square metres are demolished to accommodate a new forecourt with a main entrance, new park areas and a doubling of the bicycle parking facilities.

The Maersk tower measures approx. 42,700 square metres and is primarily dedicated to research and educational activities, canteen and bicycle parking facilities. 

The Maersk Tower is 75 metres, slightly higher than Rigshospitalet's helipad at 71 metres. On the top floor of the Maersk Tower, there will be public access to an observation platform.

The cost of the project is DKK 1.5 billion. The foundation A. P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene Formaal has made a donation of DKK 600 million + DKK 125 million for interiors and furnishings. The Danish Building and Property Agency is the owner and finances the rest of the project costs.

C. F. Møller Architects is the turnkey consultant.

The University of Copenhagen rents the building, and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is the user of the Maersk Tower.
