Offices in Keilaniemi
Life Science Center

In March 2023, a new seven-storey office building was completed in the immediate vicinity of the former LSC buildings on the Life Science Center office campus in Keilaniemi, Espoo. Hepacon was the HVAC designer for the project.

The design was challenged by the construction of the Rail-Joker right next to the LSC building and the relocation of the campus-wide wastewater pumping station that served the new building with minimal disruption to the campus.

The Life Science Centre was designed to ensure good working conditions, flexibility of space and an energy-efficient building with an indoor climate that is largely of S1 quality. An appropriate ventilation system, controlled by carbon dioxide and temperature sensors, was designed to manage the indoor climate in the different spaces with different loads and uses. The versatile heating and cooling solutions also support the objectives set at the start of the project to ensure a compact A energy class building that also meets the Breeam Excellent environmental class.
