Rovaniemi Central Area Day Care Facility
Sahanperä Day Care Facility rents a building for six groups of children. The facility includes group rooms and rest areas for each group. There is a gym hall, a small group room, staff facilities, a dining hall and rest area as well as a kitchen for serving pre-prepared meals. In addition, there are laundry, HVAC and storage rooms. The building has four entrances with adjacent facilities for maintenance of wet outdoor gear. Parmaco delivered the building complete with fixed furnishings and the facility supplied movables.
A focus area when planning the facility was to keep the area under 1,200 square metres to avoid having to construct a separate civil protection site for the facility. Another key element was energy-efficiency: the day care facility is connected to distance heating and it has water-based underfloor heating. The calculated energy performance of the building is class A. Parmaco focused on the energy-efficiency of lighting by installing motion-controlled lights and choosing the most energy-efficient heat collection system on the market. Room-specific CO2 sensors are used to ensure the even quality of indoor air. Underfloor heating is ideal for a day-care facility because small children like to play on the floor.
