Great projects are carried out in collaboration:
Tampere University of Technology’s Kampusareena building, Tampere, Finland
The Kampusareena building of Tampere University of Technology represents a modern teaching facility that brings together students, researchers and companies. The complex houses a library that, together with lobbies, open learning environments and cafés and restaurants, forms an extensive open-plan space. AINS Group’s acoustical engineers used architectural acoustics modelling to study the way sound would travel around the space, enabling designers to optimise the selection of sound-absorbing materials and fabrics. The building also boasts an auditorium, which has received praise for its excellent acoustics that allow the speaker to be heard by those on the back row without the need for sound systems.
Information on the project:
- Cost 38 million euros
- Gross floor area 15,500 m²
- Integrated project delivery (project management contract)
- BREEAM Very Good-certified
- The building’s green roof serves as a recreational area.
- The project received recognition in the 2014 occupational safety competition and Skilled Landscaping Contractor Competition.
Tampere’s newest tower block and landmark, Luminary, will consist of two components: an eight-storey building and a 22-storey tower. A parking facility will be built beneath the yard area.
Luminary will house residential and business premises, complete with parking places. The project involves the use of structures for several particularly challenging designs.
Cost: 85 million euros (estimate)
Gross floor area: 18,000 m²
