Peab has been commissioned to carry out a project in Kaivopiha in the heart of Helsinki, Finland. The project consists of building a new passageway and renovating a commercial property that will include restaurants. The customer is the Helsinki University student union/YLVA and the contract is worth EUR 10 million.
The project comprises construction of a new passageway from Kaivopiha to Kolmen Sepän aukio.

The project also includes rebuilding the façade on Cityhus and Kaivopiha’s stairs as well as the entrance to Aleksanterinkatu. Even the sewage and water system will be renewed.
“The Kaivopiha development project is a very interesting and important commission for Peab. We are building in the center of town and in the liveliest section,” says Marko Rinkinen, Region Manager, Peab Finland.
“It’s great to be part of the development in the city center. The renovation includes the old student union’s basement and as it’s a historical landmark. I look forward to starting the work and collaboration with Peab,” says Verneri Lehtovirta, developer YLVA.
