NEAPO, a Finnish prefabricated steel construction company, transferred a three-storey office building by sea to its plot on the island of Hirvensalo in Turku, Finland. The building was built during spring 2011 indoors at the Turku Shipyard and was moved to its plot in September 2011. The transportation took less than three hours.
Buildings such as this have never been constructed indoors. Typically NEAPO works on modules, but this time the whole building was constructed in one piece and then transported to the plot by sea.
This was widely covered by media and NEAPO has received inquiries from all around the world for this new technology. NEAPO’s steel core panel structures open up new possibilities in building and architecture.
