Description

An overhaul project was carried out on the site and the old electrical substation was converted into offices and commercial premises and connected to the rest of the property by pedestrian links. The underground storage and parking facilities were also converted into commercial premises.

Input

Granlund was responsible for designing the HVAC, plumbing, building automation, electrical, lighting, telecoms and security systems for the project.

Unique / Key Features

Part of the site – designed by Alvar Aalto – is subject to strict building preservation orders, which created additional challenges for the design and implementation of the changes. Additionally, all of the other premises in the building were in use throughout the work.
