Pöyry wins structural engineering assignment for Perhelä Urban Centre, Järvenpää

PÖYRY PLC Press release 22 November 2016 at 08:00 GMT

Pöyry wins structural engineering assignment for Perhelä Urban Centre, Järvenpää

Lujatalo Oy has awarded Pöyry a structural engineering assignment for the Perhelä Urban Centre, to be built in Järvenpää, Finland. The assignment consists of the design of the structures and precast elements of the residential buildings, commercial and office premises, as well as an underground parking facility. The total volume of the project is 61,000 m2 gross.

The design work was started in October 2016 and the construction work is scheduled for completion in early 2021. The building company Lujatalo, part of the Luja Group, one of Finland's largest construction groups, is a major player in both residential and commercial construction.

The Perhelä Urban Centre, in the heart of Järvenpää close to the railway station, will be a new kind of city hub for living, services and leisure time.  There will be a two-floor commercial and office facility comprising the entire block and about 450 rental and owner-occupied flats, a proportion of which are located in a 25-storey tower building. The design will emphasize full accessibility: on foot, by bicycle, by public transport, and by car, with parking located in a two-level underground car park. 

According to Lujatalo's Jari Kalme, who is the manager of the project, Perhelä is one of Lujatalo's biggest investments ever. "We see Järvenpää as a highly interesting growth centre of the future, and we strongly believe that the Perhelä project will be a success story, for both Järvenpää and Lujatalo," explains Kalme.

"The professionalism of the Pöyry's core team and smooth cooperation in demanding projects in the past were the decisive factors when we selected the structural engineering partner for the project," says Lauri Porokka, construction manager at Lujatalo.

"We are pleased about the trust shown by Lujatalo, and we look forward to being a partner in a project aimed at providing people in Järvenpää with a vibrant new city hub. Pöyry's expertise in similar projects and our strong resources will help to ensure that the project is completed smoothly," explains Pekka Narinen, President of Pöyry's structural engineering.

The value of the assignment will not be disclosed. The order will be recognised in the Regional Operations order stock in Q4 2016.
