KALK and its lime products have been pivotal to the renovation of some of Denmark’s most iconic historic buildings,
including Amalienborg and Kronborg. Owner and manager Rasmus Jørgensen believes that the time has now come to take advantage of lime’s many distinctive qualities in new constructions. “Renovation has been our niche for many years, but we are now entering a new phase where we are looking at transferring lime mortar’s original qualities into today’s way of constructing. Today almost all buildings are created with a supporting concrete wall, insulation and then a brick facing and, in that kind of construction, lime mortar has many advantages.”
