Ruskeasuon Varikkokiinteistö awards tram and bus depot construction contract in Finland


Ruskeasuon Varikkokiinteistö Oy, a subsidiary of City Transport Limited has awarded a contract, worth €101m (SEK1.1bn), for the construction of a tram and bus depot in Helsinki, Finland.

The contract has been awarded to Skanska.

Skanska will include the contract value in the Nordic order bookings for Q2 2022.

Designed for 100 trams, the depot will have space for their daily maintenance, cleaning and repair work.

Furthermore, it will feature parking area for 200 buses while the maintenance building will be situated on the roof of the depot.

The building will also feature office space and a room for drivers and personnel to rest.

The depot building is expected to be certified according to BREEAM level ‘Excellent’.

This certification system establishes goals for waste management, energy and resource efficiency.

Construction of the project is expected to begin in Q4 2022, with work slated to complete in Q1 2024.

Earlier this month, Skanska signed a contract with the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, US, to renovate and expand a historic building.

The contract, worth $67m, (SEK640m), will be included by Skanska in its US order bookings for the second quarter of this year.

Work is set to start in May 2023 and is anticipated to complete by March 2025.

The 6,100m2 renovation will include new offices, open engineering research labs, classrooms, biology and chemistry teaching labs, and collaboration spaces.

The around 13,400m2 addition will include an open-bay chemistry research labs with chemical storage, material support, and facility service spaces.

This project will enable the university to widen basic science education as the current building is unable to support the requirements of advanced academic research.
