Stara provides all building services suitable for public spaces and City locations.

The vitality of a city and its residents requires day care centres and schools, sports venues and market halls, health centres and hospitals. New ones are built and old ones are renewed for new users and to meet new needs.

We at Stara specialise in the repairs of City-owned buildings and their renovation carried out concurrently with normal use. Stara provides all building services suitable for public spaces and City locations.

Our core competence also includes the repairs and restorations of valuable buildings and special structures as well as rebuilding projects – both big and small.

Craft construction: protected sites, art and design

Helsinki’s valuable properties and protected sites require the knowledge of traditional construction and conservation aspects, as well as skills in precise artisanal construction. Stara combines traditional skills with modern production equipment. We have extensive experience in the construction and restoration of demanding special sites both indoors and outdoors.

The same skills in craft construction are also needed in the creation of unique design sites and works of art. When Stara’s experience and multidisciplinary skills come together, a memorable experience is created.

Stara is Helsinki’s trusted partner when there is a need for unique products, small series, works of art and similar one-of-a-kind creations.

Our prominent construction projects include the renovations of the market halls of Hakaniemi, Old Market Hall and Hietalahti, the restoration of the Suvilahti gasometer, the renovation of Maria Hospital as a startup centre, the preserving renovation of Lapinlahti Hospital, the construction of the Vuosaari office as well as the furniture of the City Hall lobby and several libraries in Helsinki.
