Kakolankallio 2 Topping Out Ceremonies

The topping out ceremonies of Housing Company Kakolankallio 2 were carried out on the 23rd November in Turku. The 5-storey block of flats is located on the highest point of its surroundings. The building is the second part of a 3-phase project, including 63 apartments, stores, aid spaces, an underground parking hall and a courtyard built on the top slab of it. The Kakolankallio hill area rises up to 40 meters above the sea level, providing unrestricted views over the entire Turku downtown. From 1853 the Kakola area was famous of being a state prison for the cruelest criminals. This function was terminated as late as 2007, and the environment was relieved for housing, as well as cultural and recreational activities.

Project developer: OP-Vuokratuotto Fund, Main Contractor: Hartela

Team Fira´s competition entry has been created by a broad coalition of experts and the investor Nrep and developer Bonava. The official press release of the City of Helsinki and Senate Properties can be found at the project website, www.helsinkihighrise.fi. We are looking forward to developing our visions and ideas for the Pasila area!

Fields of Work

Our team has a wide range of experience with office, commercial, residential, public, and urban structures. Architectural planning requires a focus on the surroundings, understanding of the many functions, an eye to the users and insight into the financial feasibility of the project. Integrated and innovative planning is required in all the fields of work, from the idea to the implementation. We provide the broad-based and specialized expert knowledge needed for this.

Objectives

The office is committed to providing high-quality architecture that addresses in a pragmatic way the issues of construction, technology and sustainability. The process is driven by design intent - not a predetermined style - and wants to create solutions that have an intimate contact to function and context, as well as a high level of beauty and practicality.

Building Information Model

The product model embraces the entire building industry and manages the entire information life cycle of buildings. Unlike a simple 3d model on a computer, the product model contains a great deal more information about the building's materials and characteristics. It is a 3d digital database that tracks all elements that make up a building. This information can include surface area and volume, thermal properties, room descriptions, price, specific product information, window, door and finish schedules, etc. Working from the same product model as the architect, the real estate agent can easily obtain exact room dimensions and area calculations, present perspective views from any vantage and even invite prospects on a virtual tour of the building. Interior designers can begin working during the planning phase on the same product model. After construction is complete, building managers are able to use the comprehensive materials list and integrated 3d partition plan to track building assets and modify spaces.
