Caverion has signed an agreement with the City of Hämeenlinna on the implementation of the Nummi service centre as a life cycle project. The project will be carried out in cooperation with YIT. The value of the contract for Caverion is approximately EUR 16 million and it covers the delivery of total technical solutions as well as Technical Maintenance and Managed Services for the 20-year contract period. The agreement further includes an option for an additional five years. YIT is responsible for the construction of the service centre.
Caverion’s total technical solution covers the planning, execution and project management for all building systems, including Heating and Sanitation, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Cooling, Electricity, Information and Communication, Security and Safety, as well as Automation systems.
Once the service centre is completed, Caverion will be responsible for the property’s Technical Maintenance and Managed Services, including, apart from the technical services, the management of services related to cleaning and outdoor area maintenance, for example. This means Caverion will be responsible for the property’s usability, conditions, safety and energy use during its entire life cycle. The property is connected to Caverion’s HelpDesk service and the 24/7 remote monitoring and management centre, ensuring that the goals agreed for the use of the property will be met.
Life cycle model ensures safe and healthy conditions
The Nummi service centre includes a comprehensive school, library, versatile sports facilities, facilities for the health and welfare services, as well as cultural services. As a whole, the centre will constitute a modifiable complex where the technical solutions serve new ways of operation.
“The idea is to make the new building a ‘village centre’ for people of all ages for the entire duration of its life cycle. Among other facilities, we will have a library in the service centre, which we hope will attract people of all ages to visit the centre also during school hours. In addition, there will be facilities for sport and cultural services,” says Markku Rimpelä, who is in charge of children’s and young people’s services and quality of life services in Hämeenlinna.
“We have carried out several life cycle projects in Finland and Denmark. The life cycle model is the best choice when we want to ensure that the premises built are safe and healthy and always available for the intended use,” says Jarno Hacklin, Executive Vice President & CEO, Division Finland of Caverion.
The total floor area of the Nummi service centre is approximately 10,000 m2 and the premises are designed for almost 1,400 users. Excavation work at the construction site begins in spring 2016 and the building will be completed in summer 2018. The project will be financed by Municipality Finance (MuniFin) through a financial lease. The main designer of the project is Linja Architects Ltd and the pedagogical design is provided by Qroom.
The City of Hämeenlinna belongs to Caverion’s Public Sector client segment.
