Kreate acted as the project management contractor and project supervisor in the contract, where the reinforced concrete frame of the corridor between Terminals 1 and 2 of Helsinki Airport was strengthened and some relocation of building-technical systems was carried out. Strengthening the frame was a prerequisite for the new moving walkways of the corridor.

The contract included extensive foundation and concrete work, such as drilling piles for foundations, sheathing existing pillars and building new beams and pillars.

Helsinki Airport was an exceptional construction environment, and in all work phases of strengthening the gateway, a functional airport and terminal environment was taken into account, including the heavy 24/7 pedestrian traffic on the gateway. Challenges were also caused by working in very narrow floor ducts less than one metre high, as well as dismantling and building on different floors while taking into account the load-bearing capacity of the old concrete frame.

We promoted the circular economy by delivering the concrete material removed from the structures to Kreate’s circular economy unit to be crushed and reused on other construction sites.

The customer for the contract was Finavia Corporation, and the implementation time for Kreate’s part of the construction was from May 2021 to May 2022.

Kreate toimii projektijohtourakoitsijana ja päätoteuttajana urakassa, jossa vahvistetaan Helsingin lentoaseman terminaalien 1 ja 2 välisen käytävän teräsbetonirunko ja tehdään taloteknisten järjestelmien siirtotöitä.
