Frequently Asked Questions
In a project alliance, the owner and contractor parties design and implement the project as one organization that shares all the risks and possibilities. The project alliance method is frequently used in complex large-scale projects because it optimizes risk control, enables flexible resourcing and utilizes the knowhow and experience of all parties involved. The alliance model has been used in Finland before. However, two alliances cooperating on one project is a new concept. Project delivery by means of two alliances provides huge innovation potential and a strong premise for execution. The innovations and new methods resulting from this delivery method also benefit future tramway projects.
We will be building 4.5 km of tramway between Nihti, Kalasatama center, Hermannin rantatie, Vallilanlaakso and Pasila.
The general plan for the project was accepted in the summer of 2018, and the contractor parties were chosen in the spring of 2020. Our goal is to start commercial operation of the tramline in 2024.
The project owners are Helsinki City and Helsinki City Transport. The contractors form two alliances: Sörkan spora and Karaatti. Learn more about our organization here.
