Caverion and Lemminkäinen have signed an agreement on HVAC work to be carried out in an underground parking facility “Kivisydän” constructed in the centre of Oulu, Finland. The project execution includes the installation of heating and sanitation systems, ventilation, air conditioning and cooling systems. The contract is worth approximately EUR 3.4 million.
The general contractor in the parking facility construction project is Lemminkäinen Infra Oy and the developer is Oulun Pysäköinti Oy, a company owned by the city of Oulu.
The underground parking facility will also include an S2-category shelter. The underground facility excavated in the bedrock will have a floor area of 54,000 m2 and a volume of 297,000 m3.
The extensive delivery includes 24 kilometres of pipes and air ducts and about 100 air-conditioning units, among other things. Work on the HVAC project has started and will be completed by summer 2015.
Kivisydän, a modern 900-car parking facility excavated in the bedrock under the centre of Oulu, will be opened in autumn 2015. Now that Kivisydän is under construction, the infill development in the city centre can continue, the green areas can be developed and Rotuaari pedestrian zone can be expanded. Moving the parking and service traffic underground will significantly improve the quality of air in the city centre as well as make the pedestrian zones safer and more pleasant.
