Temporary-permanent school hybrid system
City of Vantaa / GXN / Vandkunsten / HSY / Ramboll
Concrete - steel - timber hybrid
Combination of permanent and temporary structures (modules)
City of Vantaa needs ways to build flexible schools in areas of rapid changing demographic capacity. The aim is to find an optimum combination of a school building which consists of partly permanent structures and partly temporary modules that can provide easy, cost efficient and fast adaption to changing needs (growth or decrease) in school capacity.
The demonstrator will uncover any benefits or downsides of design for disassembly and flexible planning design on a systemic level.
The expected impacts
Increased cost efficiency
Increased material efficiency
Decreased carbon footprint
Increased circularity by reusing the modules
Time savings in the permitting and building processes
Study on the most recent school projects in Vantaa, both temporary and permanent, to unfold baseline criteria
