Consti to fully renovate three residential buildings for Heka in EUR 17 million contract
Consti Group and Helsingin kaupungin asunnot Oy (Heka) have concluded a contract on an extensive renovation project in the Herttoniemi district of Helsinki. The contract is worth approximately EUR 17 million. The project will see three blocks of flats undergo an extensive facade and interior renovation. Work will begin in April 2018 and be completed in the summer of 2021.
Consti will carry out a new renovation project for Heka, a rental property company owned by the City of Helsinki. This time work will be conducted at Susitie 2–6 in Helsinki. Consti completed the renovation of a nearby Heka property at Siilitie 7 in the summer of 2017 and is currently refurbishing residential buildings at Siilitie 5.
“Each new project involves different buildings with different needs, but we can draw on our experience of renovations in the same area and for the same client to improve our performance. Crucially, this helps us keep our budgets and schedules competitive,” says Risto Kivi, CEO of Consti Building Facades.
Renovated homes as good as new
The Susitie property consists of three residential buildings that were built in 1952. The buildings have street-level storage facilities and a total of 156 flats on four floors. Roofs and windows will be replaced and the external walls renovated. Inside the buildings, Consti will carry out an HVACEA renovation, refurbish bathrooms and kitchens, and replace or redecorate all surfaces.
“The interiors will be stripped down to the level of the load-bearing structures. All flats and shared facilities will be made as good as new. Even the building facades and yards will also be renovated, making this refurbishment very comprehensive,” says Tapani Eisanen, construction manager at Consti.
“The technical building services systems will be fully modernised and equipped with heat recovery. New ventilation plant rooms will be built in the attic,” Eisanen says.
The project will be carried out in two phases. First, Consti will begin an extensive renovation of Building A and conduct minor work on the technical building services systems of a day-care centre located on the same site. The residential buildings’ shared facilities are in a separate building, which will also be renovated in the first phase. The second phase will see the renovation of Buildings B and C and the yards.
