NCC has unveiled its plans to construct an office and retail complex next to Ratina shopping centre in Tampere, Finland. The customer is Sponda Plc. The value of the project is approximately €25.2m (SEK 260m). Once completed the project will total c.13 800m² of net floor space.
The new building will be environmentally certified under BREEAM or LEED. In addition to sustainability, another important criterion for Sponda Plc is the convertibility of spaces. This will be considered in the planning and construction so that the premises will be as flexible and easily convertible as possible to suit different purposes and end users.
NCC aims to start construction in autumn, with the completion expected in spring 2020.
“We are happy to start this project and the construction work with NCC. The location of the new office and retail complex is excellent with very good services nearby, and will increase the appeal of the Ratina area even more,” says Ossi Hynynen, CIO, Property Investments at Property Development at Sponda Plc.
“It’s great to get a chance to build on such a unique location in Tampere. The long-standing relationship we have with Sponda and our decade-long experience from similar construction projects provide a great recipe for making this building a success," says Mika Soini, Head of NCC Building Finland.
