Description

The shopping centre, which was completed in autumn 2012, holds Finland’s second highest BREEAM environmental classification rating. Veturi achieved particularly good results in the energy section of the certification. The project received a large number of points for the building’s energy efficiency and use of renewable energy (geothermal heating).

Input

Granlund was responsible for designing the HVAC, plumbing, building automation, electrical, lighting, telecoms and refrigeration systems in the new building. Energy efficiency was the guiding theme of the design.

Unique / Key Features

LED technology and controllers played a major role in the design of the exterior lighting. The lighting in outdoor areas dims in five stages during the late afternoon, evening and night. This enables energy savings to be achieved naturally.
