Sustainable construction

The goal is to make Finnoo a pioneer of sustainable urban construction. The construction work will be steered by low-emission, sustainable solutions, ranging from planning to energy use and building materials. Among other solutions, the area will have district heating and district cooling systems, aiming to retain the energy in closed circulation. The plans for the new district include the construction of Finland’s first geothermal local heating network, which would enable the realisation of a residential area with zero emissions from heating and cooling.

Builders selected to build Finnoo are required to commit to solutions that improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, one example of which is the measurement of their energy consumption.

Nature

The natural values of Finnoviken have been recognised and are taken into account in the development of the area. An important bird habitat, the area was designated as a nature reserve in the new master plan and local detailed plan and protected with regulations when the City of Espoo chose Finnoo as one of its future metro centres and city districts to develop.
