Skanska has signed a contract with the City of Helsinki to build new apartments in Helsinki in Finland. The contract is worth EUR 34 million. The project encompasses three apartment buildings totalling 170 subsidized apartments in Jätkäsaari district in Helsinki. The buildings will represent the highest energy efficiency class and include rooftop solar panels that will help generate some of the electricity used by the property. In addition, a wastewater heat recovery system will be installed in the tallest of the three buildings.
Skanska will be responsible not only for the construction of the site, but also for its design and technical building installations. The buildings will be built on the same block where Skanska is currently constructing other rental apartments for the City of Helsinki. Skanska has previously built several apartment buildings for the City of Helsinki in the same district.
The project start is planned for December 2020, and the project will be completed in the third quarter of 2023.
