Stories behind the sites
We are launching a new series of stories where we will tell the stories behind the construction sites. This is how we highlight the significance of our work - after all, we build a sustainable, high-quality urban environment of the future with rebar.
The series will be published in Rabarbar internal newsletter for personnel and in the News section of the website.
Terminal 2 Helsinki-Vantaa airport
The most extensive expansion project in the history of Helsinki Airport is under way. Finavia's giant investment programme allows the airport to serve 30 million passengers annually.
Year 2020: Near Terminal 2 there will be a new parking garage with 1,800 parking spaces. The walls of the parking halls will be covered with solar panels. Inside the parking garage there will be parking spaces for electric cars.
Year 2022: The expansion of terminal 2 will significantly increase the terminal's facilities available for check-in, security control and baggage drop services, and enhance current arrangements for parking and public transport. The expansion will be opened in steps. The expansion will also house a multimodal travel centre that will present us with opportunities to develop enhanced connections between the airport and other modes of transport.
