Construction of Wooden Residential Buildings in Espoo and Turku
We acted as counsel to NREP in an arrangement in which NREP entered into a frame agreement with Lehto Asunnot Oy on the construction of approximately 300 rental apartments out of wood in the cities of Espoo and Turku.
The projects are notable as examples of sustainable construction. The properties will use ecological geothermal heating as their energy solution in order to reduce climate impact during operational period. The carbon footprint of wooden apartment buildings is smaller than normal, and is further balanced by the carbon that is stored in the wood structures over the long term.
The buildings are estimated to be completed in 2021–2023.
