Nordic construction company Peab has secured two new construction projects, a primary school expansion in Finland’s Lempäälä municipality, and the development of two apartment units alongside a parking garage in Helsinki.
Located in the Sääksjärvi school district of Lempäälä, the primary school expansion project has been awarded by the municipality and has an estimated value of €15m ($15.91m).
The 5,000m² project involves the construction of new classrooms, and sports facilities comprising an area of 360m².
The extension will be developed following the RTS Environmental Classification following approval by an external auditor.
Lempäälä municipality construction manager Ulla Palo-Oja stated: “The extension of Sääksjärvi school district has long been awaited and we look forward to working together with Peab.
“It will give us a functional, modern and safe school. Developing the school fits in well with the current development of the centre of Sääksjärvi.”
