Pöyry awarded structural engineering assignment for Mikkeli Central Hospital, Finland

Pöyry awarded structural engineering assignment for Mikkeli Central Hospital, Finland

Southern Savonia Hospital District has awarded Pöyry with a structural engineering assignment relating to a renovation and expansion project at Mikkeli Central Hospital. The assignment covers the structural engineering of the changes to the existing hospital and its expansion.

The goal of Mikkeli's project is to combine the city's social, basic and specialist healthcare services into one unit on the current hospital campus. It is intended to provide better, more cost-effective service to all of the municipalities and residents of the hospital district.

The project will expand the current hospital. Additional floors will be constructed as well as a new, five-storey family ward-type building. Existing facilities will be rearranged and renovated while the hospital remains active - a key consideration in both the design and construction phases.

The project will consolidate the facilities of the hospital district and Mikkeli's social and health services by approximately 20%. The centralising improves and enhances the services provided to the residents while enabling savings.

"Pöyry has extensive experience of structural engineering in large hospital projects. This experience will be useful, especially considering the requirements for the hospital to remain active whilst the work takes place," says Pekka Narinen, Director, Pöyry's Civil Engineering unit.

The project began in July and will be completed in 2020.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order will be recognised within the Regional Operations order stock in Q3/2015.
