We have implemented a turnkey pipeline renovation for a site comprised of two blocks of flats in the very centre of Hyvinkää. A turnkey pipeline renovation refers to economically driven pipeline renovation. It is suitable for housing associations that appreciate an easy, clear and overall economical pipeline renovation project – without compromising quality.
We operate under a principle of four ideas: one agreement, fixed price, agreed quality and agreed move-in date. We carry out almost all pipeline renovations as turnkey contracts, being responsible for planning and implementation. Our operating model is excellently suited for housing associations built starting from the 1950s.
The As Oy Helenenkatu 7–9 pipeline renovation was quite a typical pipeline renovation project, and no surprises were encountered. This site, built in 1968, features 35 flats and eight garages.
The property is located behind the Hyvinkää bus station in the old city centre. The five-storey block of flats has two separate stairways. The pipeline renovation was a basic contract that included bathroom renovations, coating of old drain pipes, replacement of switchboards and updating the drawings with regard to water supply and electrical systems.
The electrical systems of the bathrooms were replaced, and a new electric supply was added for the kitchen stoves. Provisions for dishwashers were also made. Chutes for water pipes were built in the stairways, with the water pipes routed to the flats via the bathroom or vestibule. If the chutes were made directly in the bathrooms, this would typically increase the costs and prolong the renovation. In fact, the flats and basement facilities were completed two months before the agreed delivery date.
Planning the pipeline renovation only took three months, after which our professionals quickly got to start their work. Efficient planning and implementation periods result in actual savings for housing associations. Thanks to the chutes made in the stairways, it was not necessary to open up the chutes. In fact, As Oy Helenenkatu 7–9 is representative of the good work of Lehto’s pipeline renovation service.
No additional work was ordered in the pipeline renovation contract, but the paving of the site was replaced. The project was completed a couple of months before the agreed delivery date. The finished project was delivered in February 2019. The residents were satisfied and praised the schedule of the pipeline renovation.
“The quality was high and the schedules were kept. The work was done with commitment and motivation, and we are satisfied with it as a whole” – Chair of the board of the housing association
