City of Lahti – efficiency and continuous improvement
The real estate portfolio of Lahti totals approximately 520,000 square meters as public buildings used for business premises. In addition to property maintenance, Lahti has several dozen constructions projects every year. The investment level remains at around 40 million euros annually.
Large property masses require a lot of upkeeping and consume notable amounts of energy. In Lahti sustainability has been incorporated as a part of the city’s strategy.
City of Lahti follows, streamlines, and improves its operations continuously. A key part of the development of operations are the property maintenance information service and the energy management system.
“Maintaining such a large mass of real estate, coordinating, and repairing work would not be possible without an electronic service book.
EG EnerKey allows consumption deviations to be detected in near real time. In addition, the entire property mass can be viewed instead of just one property at a time, which improves efficiency.
In practice, the systems work very well together. It is an absolute requirement in property management to be able to switch from the service book to the energy management system, all with one login”, says Jouni Arola Director of Facilities at City of Lahti.
