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
Non-Schengen area, Helsinki Airport
The non-Schengen section of the Helsinki airport represented a particularly challenging design and construction site. The building’s lowest two floors house luggage-handling facilities, while the top floor holds the passenger spaces. The bottom floor, which is subject to underground pressure, has post-tensioned rigid frame structures. The intermediate floor is made from elements. The frame of the passenger floor uses column-braced round composite pillars with triangular trusses installed on top.
In addition, a 350-metre-long luggage tunnel and numerous other connecting structures were designed.
The project was granted an honourable mention in the Tekla BIM Awards in 2009 and the RIL award in the same year.
Cost: 154 million euros
Gross floor area: 43,900 m²
