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
Arvo 2, Tampere
The new extension to the University of Tampere’s School of Medicine, Arvo 2, offers teaching and research facilities to Tampere University of Applied Sciences and Tampere University of Technology. About a third of the building’s area is occupied by laboratory premises and hospital demo premises that contain noise-emitting and vibration-sensitive equipment.
The building’s architectural solution is based on high and spacious lobbies that make the space light and airy. Lectures, seminars, and talks are held in these areas, which serve as open learning environments. They also offer students and staff spaces to relax in. A desire for adaptability and openness of the spaces guided all aspects of the acoustical engineering for this modern campus building.
Cost: 67 million euros
Gross floor area: 24,700 m²
