Great projects are carried out in collaboration:
Hämppi parking facility, Tampere, Finland
The award-winning P-Hämppi is an engineering tour de force that meets all the user requirements for an underground parking facility with regard to usability and convenience. Upon completion, P-Hämppi became Europe’s most modern parking facility.
We acted as the principal consultant for the project. In addition, we were responsible for the project’s construction management; expert and local supervision; and geotechnical, rock, HVAC, traffic, and structural engineering, as well as the principal-designer activities in the initial stages.
The parking facility is designed for 900 vehicles.
Gross floor area: 200,000 m²
Cost: 70 million euros
Awards: The 2013 EPA European Parking Award, the Lighting Project of the Year 2013 Award, and the 2012 Pirkanmaan Y-teko Award in civil engineering
Merikasarmi building, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Helsinki, Finland
Merikasarmi, the main building of Finland’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which is located in Helsinki’s Katajanokka, will be renovated between 2017 and 2022. The renovation is carried out as Senate Properties’ key project alliance. The Ministry’s property consists of several buildings built between 1825 and 1838 along with newer buildings completed in 1984. Because of the property’s unique characteristics, the project involves several special requirements, such as high-level security systems, the need to carry out the transfer in stages, restrictions set by the Finnish Heritage Agency, and the need to update building services while preserving the features of the old buildings
Information on the project:
- Gross floor area, approx. 26,000 m²
- Total cost, approx. 50 million euros
