Peikko is chosen as a supplier for a significant expansion project in terminal 2 of Helsinki Airport, which is Finland’s biggest airport. The order comprises 4.2 kilometers of DELTABEAM® Composite Beams. Peikko will also produce and deliver 2,000 tons of other steel structures for the project and will also be responsible for component installation. Peikko’s deliveries for the project will start in fall 2019 and the installation work will continue until August 2020.
The expansion of terminal 2 is part of the investment project of the airport company Finavia. The project will enable a smooth travel experience at Helsinki Airport for 30 million passengers annually.
The expansion area of the terminal is altogether 103,000 m2. The project doubles the amount of bridge gates for wide-body aircraft and allows for 4,800 new parking places and 450,000 m2 of renovated apron. The total investment of Finavia is going to exceed EUR 1 billion. The airport expansion will be finalized by 2022. The main contractor of the project is SRV, and Ramboll Oy is responsible for the structural design. HKP Architects and ALA Architects are jointly responsible for the architectural design of the project.
“We are proud to deliver our DELTABEAM® Slim Floor Structure for the expansion project of Helsinki Airport terminal 2, being one of the most important projects in Finland currently. It is also the biggest single project of Peikko‘s history. Our composite structure offered a viable solution for the project. On the market there is a demand for reliable and holistic solution providers,” says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
DELTABEAM®is Peikko’s composite slim-floor system for multi-story buildings of any kind. It allows flexibility for layout changes throughout the service life of the building and enables easy HVAC installations. With the use of DELTABEAM® the depth of the whole structure can be reduced, which means savings in construction time and costs as well as in heating and cooling costs. DELTABEAM® enables different kinds of cantilevers and architecturally challenging façade solutions without the use of in-situ casting.
