KYS Uusi Sydän: 10 storeys and 5.5 kilometres of concrete-filled composite beams

Anstar Oy will deliver approx. 5.5 kilometres of its concrete-filled A-BEAM W® composite beams for the new North Savo hospital. The composite beams will be delivered to Rakennusliike Lapti, the main contractor for the project.

The deliveries will begin in summer 2020 and will probably continue until late 2021. Uusi Sydän (New Heart) is an extensive hospital unit with a gross area of approx. 60,000 m2. The gross size of the building to be delivered now is 27,778 m2.

The second phase of the project will include the construction of a new 10-storey building with inpatient wards, imaging facilities on two floors, civil defence shelters, technical rooms, etc.

A-Insinöörit Suunnittelu Oy is responsible for the structural design of the project.

“This is the biggest order we have ever received. Naturally, we are happy and proud to have gained the client’s confidence. Concrete-filled composite beams enable quicker construction and also take moisture control into account,” says Managing Director Tero Viljakainen.
