The new residential project is part of NREP’s future Niittykumpu block complex in Espoo, in the capital area of Finland. The buildings will be between four and nine stories and the contract also includes a courtyard and a parking garage.

“The Niittykumpu project is part of NREP's strategic goal of developing a better and more sustainable city, and at the same time, it’s one of NREP's most significant development projects in Finland. It’s a pleasure to be cooperating in this project with a partner who shares our level of ambition for sustainability”, says Petri Valkama, Partner at NREP.

NCC is currently also building the first stage of the block, consisting of 220 apartments, a parking facility and courtyard areas, scheduled to be completed in summer 2022. The block and city plans have been developed as part of a collaboration between NREP and NCC.

The construction site will be run in accordance with NCC’s Sustainable Site concept, which is the first operating model in the Finnish construction industry to take into account all aspects of sustainability on construction sites: economic, social and environmental.

“NREP’s objectives for sustainable construction are well aligned with the measures we take during construction, such as using green electricity and minimizing and recycling waste. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with NREP and taking the next step in the development of this district,” says Catarina Molén-Runnäs, Business Area Manager of NCC Building Nordics.

The Niittykumpu block complex is aiming to achieve an A energy rating to promote the energy efficiency of the buildings and a LEED Gold certificate will be applied for the properties under construction.

Construction work has commenced and will be completed in summer 2023.

The order will be registered in the NCC Building Nordics business area in the fourth quarter of 2021.
