Footfall Counting in one of the world's tallest wooden buildings

During the fall, one of the world's tallest wooden buildings was inaugurated and IMAS was commissioned to provide the spectacular wooden construction with a footfall counting system. The 20-storey building houses today many businesses.


– We want to know what our visitor flows look like and how many people we currently have in the building, says Emma Pantze, chief operating officer at Sara kulturhus.

With its 80 meters, Sara Kulturhus is one of the world’s tallest wooden buildings and we at IMAS are happy to be able to contribute information that strengthens the visitor experience and simplifies decision-making.

We also want to give our visitors the best experience of Sara culture house as possible, it is important for us to know which entrances our visitors prefer use and over time see the flow of our visitors, Emma says.
