Consolis Parma key player in construction of an eco-friendly residential building

The building that houses 127 residential apartments at Kaskelantie 1, in Vantaa, Finland, has just received the highest Finnish ecolabel: the Swan. The label, introduced by the Nordic Council of Ministers, is only awarded to the most environmentally friendly products.

NCC Construction Ltd designed the Kaskelantie 1 building for VAV Asunnot Oy, the organisation responsible for the construction and management of rental accommodation in Vaanta. VAV’s Managing Director, Teija Ojankoskelle, explained the challenges of this eco-friendly project, “The use of natural resources and energy consumption  are high in a residential building, especially during construction. We wanted the building to be eco-efficient and provide great air quality throughout its entire lifecycle. This meant using environmentally-friendly materials and surrounding ourselves with experts in sustainable solutions.”

Parma’s experience in designing eco-friendly precast concrete solutions was key for the project. Parma delivered a new building façade, hollow-core slabs, and elements for partition walls, elevator shafts and round Betemi pillars.

“Parma’s precast concrete elements offer long-term durability and ease of maintenance”, project engineer Emma Suokas said.

“We have been cooperating with Parma on projects for a long time. We particularly appreciate their expertise and ability to work hand-in-hand with us to develop the solution that perfectly fits the need of the project”.
