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
West Metro, Espoo and Helsinki
The construction of the West Metro, connecting Helsinki’s Ruoholahti to Matinkylä, in Espoo, involved designing eight separate and challenging station entities and 33 kilometres of train tunnel, including 15 complexes comprising escape routes, pressure-balancing ducts, and technical premises. Other noteworthy tunnel structures include 55 connecting tunnels, large-scale pump systems, a water reservoir for fires, track switch points, and maintenance tunnels and tracks.
The project was granted an honourable mention in the Tekla BIM Awards in 2016.
Cost: 1.186 billion euros
Gross floor area: 350,000 m²
