The capacity of Helsinki Airport will increase
We act as the project management contractor in the Helsinki Airport terminal expansion in Finland which aims to develop the capacity of the airport.
After the expansion, the airport can receive a higher number of new wide-body aircraft, for example. The expansion will also house a new security control. In addition, we will expand luggage handling facilities and build a separate bus terminal to serve the increasing number of aprons.
Construction started in the autumn 2015 and will be completed in 2020.
In use throughout the construction
As a working environment, the airport is extremely demanding, due to tight restrictions and special safety regulations, for instance. The terminal building will be in use throughout the expansion, and our aim is to carry out work so that it has as little effect on the airport's smooth flow of passenger traffic as possible.
The project is led using the Big Room method, with us in charge of it. In the Big Room, the various parties of the project work in the same space. These parties also include Destia that acts as the alliance contractor for the airport level of the expansion. Lemminkäinen and Destia share common project targets.
"Helsinki Airport is one of the leading airports in Europe when measured in the number of airline passengers heading towards Asia. By expanding the terminal, we will be able to offer them higher quality service and receive larger wide-body aircrafts at Helsinki Airport," says Kari Savolainen, CEO of Finavia.
