The project entailed replacing some of the property’s ventilation units and switching the ventilation’s operating logic to be needs-based. At the same time, modernisations were made to heating and cooling systems, and a new standby power supply was installed.
The renovated property was built in stages between 1970 and 1990. Its buildings have a total area of around 19 000 m2, and they provide work spaces for around 450 professionals. The property owner is the Swedish property investment company Hemfosa Fastigheter Ab.
“The property has been maintained well, but ageing is a challenge for any property,” says Pasi Nieminen, Country Manager for Hemfosa’s Finnish operations.
Hemfosa, listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, specialises in properties occupied by socially significant institutions. The company’s assets are worth around 3.5 billion euro, of which some 180 million euro are invested in Finland. Hemfosa owns eight socially significant properties in Finland, including district courts, police stations, government agencies and university buildings.
According to Nieminen, the collaboration between Hemfosa and LeaseGreen has started well:
“It inspires confidence in us how LeaseGreen examines alternatives related to the property as a whole, from indoor user conditions to energy efficiency. LeaseGreen’s experts have a high level of know-how and they are easy to work with.”
