Elementtitalo, Arabianranta, Finland...


A few photos of an 'Elementtitalo', or 'element building/ house' going up in Arabianranta (Arabian-beach translated from Finnish), a new residential area in the outskirts of Helsinki. This form of building, which involves a set of factory made, semi-bespoke, building elements that are manufactured elsewhere, and transported to site where they are assembled, almost like a 3D puzzle, into the completed building...

These building systems are quite common in Scandinavia, but, as of yet, I haven't seen any implemented in the same fashion here in the Middle-East...

Might be a worthwhile effort to find out how well these are/ could be synchronized with various BIM systems..?!
