Aedifica’s Hoivatilat lines up more care facilities in Finland

The Brussels-headquartered listed care home specialist Aedifica is to invest €18 million developing four new facilities in Finland through its local division, Hoivatilat.

The projects will include the development of a service community in Espoo (pictured above), a care home in Kuopio and two residential care centres for disabled people, respectively in Nokia and Sotkamo.

The Espoo Kuurinkallio service community will include a child day-care centre for up to 75 children and a residential care centre accommodating 26 disabled people. Kuopio Torpankatu will accommodate 47 elderly people requiring continuous care. Nokia Tähtisumunkatu will accommodate 21 residents while Sotkamo Härkökivenkatu will accommodate 22 residents.

Construction will start on the Sotkamo project later this year. The other developments are already underway. All should be complete in 2024.

The four care properties will use energy-efficient systems, such as geothermal heating and an air-water heat pump which should result in an EPC1 rating ‘A’ or ‘B’ for each of these buildings.
