Comprehensive design of building service systems

Finavia Corporation is in charge of maintaining and developing of its 24 Finnish airports. Helsinki Airport is Finavia's primary airport with its 15 million yearly passengers.
Finavia launched a development programme in 2014 that aims to retain Finland's excellent air travel routes and to ensure the Helsinki Airport's strong position, especially as a transit point between Europe and Asia.

The development projects will be implemented in three phases during 2014–2020. Granlund is responsible for the project's HVAC design, covering a total area of 80,000 brm2. The assignment includes the Helsinki Airport transit capacity expansion project's design drafts for HVAC, electricity and sprinklers, and the consultation of the expansion project's environment and energy efficiency aspects.

The project's main HVAC designer, Jukka Tyni thinks that the project's greatest challenge is construction for a 24/7 environment. This highlights the importance of excellent design in ensuring undisturbed and safe passenger traffic.

Granlund has previous experience of delivering electricity, telephony, information and lighting designs for, e.g. Helsinki Airport's long-haul area expansion, which was completed in 2009, and the renovations of departure halls 2, 3 and 4 in 2011–2012. Designs were also provided for the check-in hall's new security checkpoint in 2014. Granlund has also provided maintenance manual coordination.
