Munkkiniemi Kone – combining quality and functionality
94 properties in the newly renovated former corporate administration office building of international engineering and service company KONE are secured with the iLOQ S10 digital locking system.
Auratum Asunnot Helsinki Oy creates opportunities for high-quality housing by building new and renovating older, well-respected properties in unique locations. A recent project has been to renovate the former corporate administration office building of international engineering and service company KONE, located at Munkkiniemi Puistotie close to the center of Helsinki, Finland.
In addition to the complete transformation of the culturally and architecturally rich office building into 83 high-quality apartments, the property is complemented with a magnificent town house consisting of 11 three-storey apartments and a two-storey underground garage. The new design of ‘Munkkiniemi Kone’ is based on the winning proposal of architectural group – A6 – submitted to an architectural competition in 2012.
Munkkiniemi Kone has been equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and technology. For example, a surveillance camera system has been installed in the entrance halls and garage, the apartments include wireless internet and a video intercom system, and all 94 properties are secured with the iLOQ S10 digital locking system.
Because locks and keys are fully programmable, iLOQ S10 was installed already during the renovation phase. This meant access rights for keys could be quickly granted to construction workers during the building work, updated for 3rd parties as the project progresses, and cancelled and reprogrammed for residents after its completion.
Access rights are managed with easy-to-use cloud-based software, where the placement of locks is displayed on a floor plan of the property. This ensures simple administration, high levels of security, and, with no batteries or cables needed, low costs.
“We chose iLOQ’s digital locking solution based on our excellent experience of working with iLOQ on previous projects. iLOQ S10 provides a simple way to implement a high-quality item locking system,”
