Peikko Group’s Finnish subsidiary Peikko Finland Oy supplies its composite frame solution to Ratina shopping center in central Tampere. The order comprises 10 kilometers of DELTABEAM® Composite Beams and about 1.300 tons of other steel structures needed in the building frame. The deliveries have started in March and continue until October 2016. The shopping center will be opened for public in spring 2018.
The Ratina shopping center is developed by Sponda Oyj. It is formed by three buildings – a 3-storey new construction and two old functionalistic buildings which will be fully renovated. When ready, this largest shopping center in Tampere will comprise 53.000 m2 of retail space, over 150 stores and parking spaces in two stories. The architect design has been made by B&M Oy and the structural design by A-insinöörit Suunnittelu Oy.
”We are proud that our composite frame solution was chosen to this large retail project. The speed of frame construction, in-built fire protection, and space for technical installations were decisive factors for using Peikko’s solution. Ratina shopping center is so far the largest frame construction delivered by Peikko”, states Esa Rusila, Managing Director of Peikko Finland Oy.
