Infrakit Involved in Infrastructure Project for Pääskyvuorenrinne Planning Area in Turku — Over a Million in Cost Savings Achieved
This week’s headlines included news of how seven recent construction and infrastructure projects in Turku came in below budget, as well as on schedule. The article describes how the highest savings in real terms were made in the infrastructure project for the Pääskyvuorenrinne planning area. “Road connections, bridges, parks, lighting, a water supply and storm water system were built for a former Finnish Defence Forces barracks area. The project’s cost estimate was calculated at EUR 5.46 million. The actual costs of the Pääskyvuori project are currently EUR 4.18 million, although work is still in progress on the cycle paths. They will be finished upon the completion of apartment buildings on the site. It currently looks as though the project will come in EUR 1.1 million under budget.” (Yle News, 26 August 2020).
Infrakit Group Oy has been involved in the construction of Pääskyvuorenrinne. Johanna Akkanen, Developer in Charge at the City of Turku, describes the cooperation as follows: “Pääskyvuorenrinne is a perfect example of the importance of cooperation. The contract would scarcely have succeeded without cooperation and a common goal. The plans were of high quality, but the contractor was willing to further develop its operations and those of us, the developers. Infrakit served as a platform for cooperation, enabling information to flow, in close to real-time, between the project managers Ramboll, the contractor Terrawise, and the designer Destia.”
