A Working Lab is located next to Chalmers's southern entrance and is part of Johanneberg Science Park. The concept is created by Akademiska Hus and is meant to act as an arena for innovation and cooperation where ideas and knowledge are exchanged between the academy, industry, and society. Sustainability is one of AWL's most important core values.
The tenants at A Working Lab do all come from different industries and backgrounds: students, companies, freelancers, and more. The concept is meant to offer flexible workspaces available for anyone and as long as they would need. This means that there is a big mix of people occupying the premises.
Ongoing employees has access to is a bike room, a small gym, dressing rooms, and a sauna. A garage is also available where one is able to charge their electric car. Sustainability and a low greenhouse gas footprint have always been key for the conceptual idea of the building. Occasionally, the building hosts events and activities such as after works, weekly runs, workshops - a good opportunity to connect with your office neighbours.
In 2019, A Working Lab was honored as "Framtidens fastighet" (“The building of the future”) with the motivation: "A real estate that from all perspectives has been built with a strong vision for the future. The building is sustainable, energy-efficient, has innovative technology, and eases the use for the people that are in the building."
