Integrated methods of procurement being adopted for new types of projects
Of the aggregate value of all the alliance projects launched to date, 24% relate to infrastructure investments, 70% to housing investments and 6% to other projects and services. Of all construction projects, new construction accounts for 71% and buildings repairs and renovations 29%.
In terms of numbers, most of the projects launched under the alliance model are new construction or renovation projects for residential buildings (13), schools (12), hospitals (12) or business premises (12). A special feature of these projects is the engagement of the users and the large number of stakeholders, something that the alliance model provides an excellent platform for.
In terms of costs, hospitals and health centres (EUR 3.2 billion) as well as tramway projects (EUR 1.4 billion) account for the largest share of alliance projects. These categories also include the largest single “megaprojects” in budgetary terms. For example, the Laakso Joint Hospital and the Kalasatama-Pasila tramline projects offer an opportunity to delve deeper into the new ways of working, contract integration and lean construction.
