About the project

Auratum Asunnot Helsinki Oy commissioned the conversion of a previous military barrack area in Taivallahti into a nursing home, supermarket and parking facility. The supermarket and parking facility were completed in early 2016 and the nursing home at the end of the year.

“We had a positive feeling about the project and the cooperation with Fira has gone well. We are already seeing how our vision for the supermarket and the nursing home is coming together. Especially the supermarket build was right on schedule. Fira has handled the information really well and especially in the beginning of the project to the neighbourhood. I’ve participated in Big Room meetings which are a great method.”
– Janne Hietala, Auratum Asunnot Helsinki Oy

We are happy to participate in rebuilding and renovating at such a central location. Our mission is to build a smarter society. It means that, in built-up environments, we need to take changes in society and its needs into account. This project revitalises the old Taivallahti barracks. ”
– Miska Eriksson, Fira Oy
