The simulation proved the energy efficiency of Are Sensus®, and the construction project met all the expectations.
University Properties of Finland (SYK) selected Are Sensus® for the Ruusupuisto building at the University of Jyväskylä.
As early as during the planning phase, SYK compared Are Sensus with conventional technical building systems using the impartial IDA simulation software. The simulation proved that Sensus reduced the need for heat from the district heating system by 15% and cut the electricity consumption of the cooling equipment by 28%.
The requirements for the Ruusupuisto building were extremely stringent. Its design was based on high-quality architecture, functional facilities and an optimal indoor climate. Representatives of the university – that is, future users of the building – participated in the planning process to ensure that the facilities function well. For SYK, Ruusupuisto was a pilot project in terms of quality assurance.
No mistakes in the installation
As always for Sensus projects, Are managed the design of the heating, plumbing, ventilation, electricity, automation and cooling. We were also responsible for the technical building solutions in this turnkey contract. No mistakes were detected during the acceptance inspection. “This was the first perfectly implemented project I have seen during my career of more than 30 years,” says Mälkönen, a leading expert in technical building systems. The project earned Are an honorary mention from SYK.
Completed in 2015, the Ruusupuisto building in Jyväskylä has a total area of 8,800 square metres.
