Sustainability is the overall objective in the development process of Ilmalanlinna when it comes to building techniques and accessibility, as well as services. Low emissions and recyclability regarding materials and furnishings allow the tenant to make sustainable choices.
In addition to the technical characteristics, the building will be valued according to the health and well-being of the property users. Investing in the well-being and comfort of users will also improve the company’s productivity and attractiveness.
The operations, technical devices and consumption levels of the property will be monitored by means of building automation systems, from which data can be gathered for the benefit of the tenant and owner. Bringing utility levels to the attention of the users is often the most beneficial way of making people change their behaviour, lower their energy usage, or increase their level of recycling.
Other technological advantages will be defined together with the customers based on their needs.

The building is connected to Helsingin Energia’s district heating and cooling networks. The premises are heated and cooled by draught-free radiant panels with zone-specific control. The building is equipped with a heat recovery system. Heating and cooling is carried out by Helen’s Renewable District Heating and District Cooling.
The building is connected to the city of Helsinki’s water and sewer networks. Faucets are electronic or single lever taps and basins are porcelain. Water fixtures are water-saving and energy-efficient, meeting the requirements of the environmental certification.
The building is equipped with mechanical ventilation system (with heat recovery). Ventilation is adjusted as required according to the CO2 concentration and, in conference rooms, also according to temperature.If desired, the system can also be controlled according to the use of the premises.
Building services systems are controlled by a building automation system. The building automation system is controlled and managed from a local control room. Data is collected from multiple sensors connected through gateways, which enable them to relay the collected data to a server in the cloud. The systems can be remote controlled.
When it comes to water consumption, only heavy users such as restaurants are metered.
Work areas are equipped with white LED luminaires that can be controlled per workstation automatically or manually. Workplace lighting level 500lux In conference rooms, lighting is controlled by switches.
Cabling meets Class EA requirements (Cat 6A U / UTP). Each workstation is equipped with an RJ45 junction box. Building is equipped with WLAN covering the public areas. Optical fiber categories OM4 (multimode fiber) and OS2 (single mode fiber) have been used as riser cables.
The building is equipped with an access control system. The exterior of the building is protected by a burglar alarm system. The building is equipped with a camera surveillance system. The internal security systems of the business premises shall be agreed separately with each tenant according to their needs.
A photovoltaic system can be installed on the roof of the building. The electrical energy produced by it can be then used for the property’s own consumption.
Waste energy from refrigerators, large peak extractors etc., can be combined and used for building heating using heat pumps. Energy circulation system is installed if such sources are installed to premises.
The building automation system can be expanded so that energy consumption can be monitored, visualized and analyzed in great detail. The extension will be agreed separately with each tenant according to their needs.
New lighting control systems can be used for information collection for example to monitor the use of the premises (PoE lighting / control systems).
The machine-learning automation system learns how tenants use the building and optimizes the use of the systems based on the information. Utilizing wearable electronics, the building automations system adjusts conditions of the premises based on information available from activity bracelets, etc. The information can be used to optimize the work environment and alleviate stress, for example. A two-way charging system for electric cars, so that car batteries can be utilized in situations of increased peak demand of electricity. Photovoltaic energy storage. With the help of energy storage, electricity produced with solar energy can be used in situations of increased peak demand of electricity.
