The ProDigial research programme of the university’s Research Centre Terra was awarded as a successful development project at the Kuntatekniikan päivät-infrastructure event held in Pori.

The Finnish Association of Municipal Engineering (FAME) gives out the “Kuntatekniikka development initiative achievement” award annually to significant construction and development projects that have a wide national impact.

The aim of the research programme is to develop means and operating models that improve productivity, promote the utilisation of digitalisation throughout the entire life cycle of the infrastructure and provide an overall picture of the system. Practical infrastructure projects testing new means and operating models form an integral part of the research. (8 June 2022

Infrakit has been involved in the research in the pilot projects carried out in Lahti and Jyväskylä.

The infrastructure project carried out at an old garrison in Hennala, Lahti, focuses on the construction of a residential area for 5,000 people, in a manner that respects its history and using the early contractor involvement model. The aim of the project, in which Infrakit is a key application provider and development partner, is to develop an operating model for setting and verifying quality requirements.

The pilot project carried out in Jyväskylä aims to develop BIM utilisation in site management. The project focusing on the restoration of River Tourujoki functions as the development platform. In the project, Infrakit acts as a key application provider that carries out the practical work to provide a snapshot for site management.
