Paviljonki 1 parking garage serves the busy area of Lutakko in Jyväskylä, with 320 underground parking spaces. The construction process was full of challenges regarding schedule and the proximity of water.
The parking garage is located four meters beneath groundwater surface, so without proper grounds the whole construction could either sink to soft ground or even rise through waters lifting pressure. The solution for this problem was to palisade the construction approximately 30 meters beneath the surface, and attach the building to its place with rock anchors. The construction site used around 1,1 million kilos of concrete steel and 20 kilometers steel pipe.
