Are Oy                                             Press release                                   12 April 2017 at 8.30 a.m.


Are and SRV have signed an agreement for the plumbing work at the REDI Majakka residential building being built in Kalasatama, Helsinki. The value of the contract is EUR 2.5 million.


Upon completion in spring 2019, the 35-storey Majakka building, home to 282 apartments, will be the tallest residential building in Finland. The apartments in the Majakka building will be located on top of the REDI shopping centre.


“Due to the technical challenges posed by its height, Majakka, the first residential highrise to be completed at REDI, is a more challenging plumbing project than a regular apartment building,” says Timo Kekkonen, Project Manager, Building Systems Services at SRV.


“It is great that we are able to be involved in building this new landmark in Helsinki. The height of the property and resulting logistical challenges will make this an especially interesting worksite,” says Ari Salminen, Area Manager at Are.
