Great projects are carried out in collaboration:
KOy Jousenpuisto parking facility, City of Espoo
The Jousenpuisto parking facility serves as the roof over the Urheilupuisto metro station’s platforms. The project was challenging because of the foundation conditions, connecting structures, and waterproofing requirements.
In addition, 2–8-storey residential buildings and a yard area will be built above the car park.
Cost: 30 million euros
Gross floor area: 30,000 m²
Tampere University Hospital renovation project 2020: AP parking facility, Tampere
Work on the parking facility is part of the hospital’s yard-area project. This, in combination with the D, N, and L buildings, will form a complex of new buildings. The two-storey parking hall is directly connected to the new buildings and is also used by taxis and, occasionally, ambulances.
The parking facility’s roof is made from post-tensioned structures and is designed to allow the construction of a tram line and stops over it.
The facility has 400 parking spaces.
Gross floor area: 18,000 m²
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
