Helsinki is one of the smartest and most functional cities in the world. This means taking concrete measures and making choices that make daily life easier for residents, visitors and businesses alike. And students, too.
Greater Helsinki is leading the way in developing solutions for the digital built environment. Digitalisation enables better services, supports reaching sustainability goals and creates new business opportunities for local and international companies. The video of the renovation of Ressu Upper Secondary School in Helsinki demonstrates how digitalisation and sustainability go hand-in-hand and modernise even buildings that date back to 1882.
The digital solutions are hidden into the structures to ensure the historical architecture remains intact but modern requirements are met. Measures were also taken to ensure good indoor air quality, which is considered to be one of the most efficient way to enhance people’s health and wellbeing.
Today, after the renovation, this historical building is not only comfortable, but has been brought to next level in sustainablility and energy efficiency.
