Вклад Uponor

Underfloor heating pipes ca. 3.5 km, composite and PEX pipes ca. 900 m plus fittings and accessories
Former NHL stars are entitled to expect high standards and modern solutions. Sami Kapanen's log house on the shore of Lake Kallavesi emphatically delivers on these expectations. However, the best features are hidden away, even from the residents. The goal is that the advanced building services in the house work without being noticed.

Kapanen's Honka log house is one of the largest private detached houses to be built in Finland. The three-storey house has almost 600 square metres of floor space. Including the cellars, it has more than 1,000 square metres. The North American influence on the house is clear but the four children and the main owner of the Kalpa Hockey Oy ice hockey team will certainly make the most of the space, including the formal reception areas.

Like a small apartment building

Large houses require suitably large HVAC systems. An important factor in the design was to ensure that the building services are easy to use. The house is heated and cooled using geothermal heat pumps. The house has a total of seven separate piping systems: the ventilation and heating system, the underfloor heating for the wet areas, the air conditioning system, the underfloor heating and cooling system, the domestic water system, the sewer and wastewater system and the central vacuum cleaning system. – The house required four times as much material as a normal detached house, according to Sami Merasto, Regional Sales Manager for Eastern Finland.

There is well over one kilometre of pipes and ducts in the house, estimates Juho Mustonen from Savon LVI-Talo Oy, who was also responsible for HVAC work management during the construction phase. Several of the pipes and ducts are larger than those in a normal detached house. According to Mustonen, the building is actually a small apartment block.

Ventilation is handled by a total of four machines. The plastic ventilation ducts that were installed would be enough to cater for several normal detached houses. The ventilation ducts are mostly insulated Uponor plastic pipes. Heat is distributed throughout the house by water-based underfloor heating. One of the two underfloor heating loops in the house can also provide cooling when required. The underfloor heating and cooling pipes are supplied by Uponor's DEM control system.

Kapanen's house has five toilets, a large sauna and a bathroom. The house's domestic water system was implemented using Uponor's PEX and composite pipes.

The biological treatment plant is worth its price

The Murto family, from Savonlinna, Finland, live in a sturdy log cabin built in 1845. The waste water system of the house had last been overhauled in the 1970s and the old concrete wells and absorption field had reached the end of their lifecycle. The choice was between renovating the old wells and getting an Uponor biological treatment plant, and the decision was not difficult to make.

Renovation of the district heating piping system of six housing companies

Six housing companies located in the Hurttivuori district in Turku have a joint heating plant – Nokikana Oy. The terraced houses, which were built between 1975 and 1977, contain a total of 104 flats. Heating and water are supplied to all flats by a joint heating plant. Renovating the piping system became a necessity due to leaks. The plant's insulated elements were renovated in such a way that all residents were able to live in their homes for the entire duration of the renovation.
D'or Appartements

D'or Appartements

In one of the most beautiful parts of Budapest, at the bottom of the Sas hill, there is this 88 flat condominium called "D'or Appartements", which consists of 3 blocks. On the 1.23 acre property, there are three 5-story blocks of 32, 31 and 25 flats respectively. The most important aspect in the design of the flats was to create ideal living-space, thus homes between 46 m2 and 105 m2 can be found in the buildings.
