The professionals at Kauniala hospital are satisfied. The conditions in the facility have improved and energy costs have been reduced by 15 per cent. There is more money for the most important thing: the wellbeing of the customers.
“This is an exceptionally good result”, says Mervi Ahlroth, CEO of Kauniala Hospital. “The measurement data from the sensors tells us that the quality of the indoor air is very good. The control over the facility has improved substantially, even though for particular structural reasons we have certain restrictions.”
Kauniala Hospital Ltd was a former hospital for war injuries that is now in the ownership of the City of Vantaa. Nearly 300 care workers are employed at Kauniala, who take care of over 200 patients who need long-term care or rehabilitation, amongst them a few war veterans.
LeaseGreen carried out a large building services technology modernisation in 2015. The project involved renewing the facility’s automation, ventilation, and lighting. The majority of the ventilation units were modernised and their controls changed as necessary. LED lighting and sensor controls were installed in the hospital. The water usage was also improved.
