The new incineration plant is an extension to the existing Gärstadverken district heating plant, and is located right beside European Highway 4. This high-profile location places high demands on the architectural design of what is perhaps Linköping's most visible building.
The main building covers 115 x 31m and is 45 m tall. It is largely built up of glass, exposing the primary processes - the furnace and the gas purification plant - partly as part of the architectural expression, and partly as a pedagogical element. The openness of this building contrasts with the other lower and more closed-off buildings.
