The seven-metre-high glass structures at ABB Vaasa’s offices are an impressive sight – Scanmikael implemented the location’s glass partition solutions
Scanmikael implemented the unique glass partition solutions at the offices of ABB Vaasa. The contractor of the location was Lujatalo, and the building was designed by Parviainen arkkitehdit Oy.
The offices of ABB Vaasa have been implemented with a variety of meeting rooms of different shapes, all with a unique design. Built in the shape of parallelograms, the meeting rooms are visually interesting and first of their kind. More interest is created by the large, soundproofed single-pane glass structures that are over seven metres tall.
“Our team suggested to the architect that the two-part glazing be implemented in full height, and the result is very impressive,” says Joni Kaski, the CEO of Scanmikael. “With tall glass, supply is always a challenge. A suitable manufacturer was found in Austria. Working together seamlessly with two glass robots, our experienced fitting team installed them successfully in the narrow space.”
“At this location, we also implemented very challenging soundproofed meeting rooms designed in the shape of a parallelogram. Our fitting team’s decades of experience ensured that they were a complete success,” explains Kaski.
Space management design with real thought
The operational environment, in which Scanmikael’s products are used, requires top quality and very carefully thought-out space management design. The company’s project department adds the products directly on the architect’s drawings.
“We want to serve the users of the space and enable versatile use of the space. This may mean that the size of the space is defined, and the crowds are directed in a certain way, ensuring the safety of every user, from the youngest to the oldest one. On the other hand, it may also mean controlling outside noise or light, or limiting visibility.”
Responsibility and sustainable development are on show at Scanmikael
Scanmikael develops and refines products, installment methods and production processes according to a programme initiated by the European Union, aimed at reducing certain types of waste. At the end of a product’s lifespan, the use of its raw materials is maximised whenever possible.
“Our products and processes are developed with our own production as well as the customer, in order for the product to be reused and recycled. Our primary goal is to reduce the total amount of waste created in production and packaging.”
