The city of Hämeenlinna had a clear idea of the conditions that the building should have. To get started with planning, Caverion received a functional description of the property, detailing how the building is used and what kind of activities it hosts and the required maximum and minimum surface areas required for various functions. In the school, the pupils will be taught in an open space that will not have any traditional classrooms.

Life cycle model provides better conditions for the entire life cycle
Caverion executed the project using the life cycle model with a responsibility period of 20 years.
Optimising the premises and the use of energy and high-quality indoor climate and security have been integrated into one building management system (Caverion Drive). Conditions and their monitoring are automated, and all systems can be controlled remotely from the Remote Centre. Over 900 sensors have been placed all over the property to monitor the conditions.
Caverion's customer portal enables the property user to monitor the functions of the property. The portal also increases transparency between the user and the supplier.
The building shell is protected with an intrusion detection system, which for instance enables protecting different floors as separate areas. All issues, including intrusions, send an alarm to Caverion's Remote Centre.
The life cycle model gives the service provider the possibility to optimise execution and take responsibility of the costs for the entire life cycle. As a result, the city of Hämeenlinna is aware of the operational costs of the property for the entire life cycle agreement, making their budgeting easy.
“Caverion has strengthened the trust established when cooperating in the procurement and construction process by listening to the users of the premises and promptly fixing deficiencies. For us in Hämeenlinna it is particularly important to succeed in the first life cycle procurement. A strong successful cooperation with Caverion is the key to success,” says Markku Rimpelä, Strategy Director of the city of Hämeenlinna.
The project was started in 2017. The property was completed in 2018, and the responsibility period of the life cycle model is 20 years.
