A new office building in a prime location of Töölönlahti, an area actively developed in the heart of Finland’s capital Helsinki, is built with Peikko’s composite structure solution. In charge of the design of the building is Verstas Architects Ltd., winner of the international architecture competition organized for the project. The constructor is Lemminkäinen Talonrakennus Oy. The building will be ready in spring 2014. Peikko Group’s Finnish subsidiary Peikko Finland Oy delivers to the site 1.8 kilometers of Deltabeams and 180 tons of other steel structures, mainly composite columns.
Peikko’s Deltabeams, composite columns and steel structures together form Peikko’s flexible composite structure solution eminently suited as a frame for office, commercial and public buildings. The composite structure enables large open spaces and slim floor structures. It thus offers considerable benefits during both the building process and the building’s entire life-cycle leaving lots of space for technical installations and enabling easy layout changes of the premises.
”Peikko’s composite structure solution has been very well received on the market. It is a flexible, fast and cost-efficient way to build a frame, and also secure the flexibility of the layout during the entire life-cycle of the building”, states Mikko Kuusilehto, Managing Director of Peikko Finland Oy.
