FACTS

PROJECT

Renovation and expansion of the Turku City Theatre

YEAR

2017

PROJECT

Turku City Theatre, which had grown weary, cramped and in desperate need of modernisation, is being completely renovated. The theatre will also be expanded towards Urheilupuisto and the banks of the Aurajoki. The current theatre building was opened in 1962 and its ventilation, electrical engineering and lighting are now being completely renewed. Special attention is also being paid to accessibility and fire safety.

When completed in 2017, the renovation will expand the Turku City Theatre premises by a third. The site is designed by information modelling.

Sweco is acting as the expert in charge of HVAC and sprinkler system design.
