The "Beržų Terasos" consists of 4 buildings, 141 apartment in total tailored to cater for different needs of people. The complex has 19 different types of apartments designed: one-to-five bedroom apartments, two-level apartments, exclusive penthouses. All apartments have glazed or open terraces.

During the project development, modern, efficient and environmentally-friendly solutions were prioritised, which allow to reach the higher standard of quality of life and healthier environment. It is the first project of the developer MG Valda with underfloor heating fitted as a standard. The solution was based on the main vision and findings of the survey of residents' expectations.

The Beržų terasos project received the award for the urban complex development at the Green City – Best RE Eco-Project competition.

The "Beržų Terasos" apartments are equipped with Uponor underfloor heating system with digital programmable wired thermostat T38. This equipment allows programming the system for special operation during working days, on weekends, during holidays. Comfort/economical regime programming, automatic balancing function are also installed. Thanks to all this, residents can create proper indoor microclimate, controlling energy costs at the same time.

It's not a secret that Uponor underfloor heating system was chosen in order to satisfy aesthetic demands of the residents without restricting architectural freedom. This choice allowed picture windows to be fitted.

The apartments in the capital city also have Uponor water supply system fitted.

Underfloor cooling adds value to new construction

Postitalo, the former post office building in downtown Tampere, got a new look in 2017 when it was renovated into new commercial premises and a block of flats was built on top.

A line renovation was carried out in a block of flats in Turku using Uponor's R2I elements

Line renovations in blocks of flats can be conducted significantly faster and more easily. The Uponor R2I cassette makes for a problem-free renovation. Thanks to advanced prefabrication, the project period is shorter and the risks are lower. The As Oy Varsta company in Turku is the first R2I pilot site. The site will be completed to an expedited schedule.
