The loudest phase of the work is in progress. Excavation by blasting is coming to an end, and the excavation will be continued by chocking. Excavation causes noise.

The technology transfers on Kamppi metro station and the ticket hall on Fredrikinkatu are complete. The demolition of the old building is nearly finished.

Work on building frame about to start – worksite traffic to increase

The construction of the concrete frame is about to start. The worksite will require an increasing amount of construction material, and the number of cargo trucks will increase around Kamppi.

 Supplies are mainly delivered to the site on weekdays during the day. Heavy traffic will usually arrive at the construction site through the gate on Runeberginkatu, which can be accessed via Mechelininkatu and Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu. Vehicles will exit the worksite on the Fredrikinkatu side.

In June, the erection of a 70-metre tower crane will begin in the worksite.

 The erection of the building will cause normal construction noise approximately until February 2025. Noisy work phases will be carried out on weekdays between 7:00 and 18:00.

The City of Helsinki is having the Kamppi Health and Well-being Centre built at Salomonkatu 8. The centre will also house commercial premises and access to the Kamppi metro station. The building will have eight above-ground levels and two underground levels. The main contractor of the project is YIT.

After completion, the new Health and Well-being Centre will provide the residents of central Helsinki with a wide range of public health and social services under one roof. The aim is to have the premises ready for use in 2028.
