When DISA COO Peter Holm Larsen started his welcome address to employees, customers and guests in the new DISA Headquarters in Taastrup DK ,he remembered the last two years of planning and building up these environmentally friendly and modern facilities.
“Moving to the new location is only one step of the vision”, stated Larsen. He emphasized that DISA new headquarters now provides transparent environment for working in teams and they have set a footprint for sustainability as a Danish based company to be competitive as a global player.
The construction of DISA´s new headquarters did not proceed without challenges. During the project they had to replace the building site in Taastrup because of a surprise. An unforeseen waterhole was filled with preserved frogs and salamanders and this led to elaborate changes in the conception.
But the frog became the symbol of the entire moving project and the change project. “Kiss the Frog” holds a fine symbolism. DISA´s new headquarters has turned into a “beautiful prince” and the environmental responsibility has been adopted. This will remain a symbol for the future green profile of DISA.
