Project Name Nurmijärvi Municipal Building Location Nurmijärvi, Finland Year 2016
Contractor MM-Yritysrakentaja Oy Architect Architects Office Aarne von Boehm Oy Owner/Builder Nurmijärvi Municipality

General Description:

This extensive renovation project included the complete rebuilding and insulation of the roof under harsh winter conditions.

Why Expanded Clay:

Expanded clay lightweight aggregate was decided upon its lightness and easiness to install. As opposed to concrete, expanded clay roofing tiles are lightweight but strong, have good heat insulation properties, and can withstand severe weather conditions.

Key benefits:

The expanded clay lightweight aggregate was lifted from the transport vehicle to the roof in a lifting box attached to a long hose. Once up, the workers filled the surface with the aggregate before adding the new roofing tiles.
