FORTUM CORPORATION PRESS RELEASE 3 April 2017
Fortum’s head office in Keilaniemi, Espoo, will move into a refurbished
multi-space office that supports flexible working and innovative collaboration.
Fortum employees in Helsinki metropolitan area will move at the turn of the
year 2017-2018 into a multi-space office located at Keilalahdentie 2-4. In
addition to Fortum, the new head office building also houses Tieto and
The move will affect some 1,100 Fortum employees who are currently working at
Espoo’s Keilaniemi and Piispanportti sites and Vantaa’s Myyrmäki site. The head
office move is part of a broader corporate culture change, which will
strengthen innovativeness, open interaction between employees, and a modern
management approach. Fortum announced the plans to give up its current
Keilaniemi head office first time in spring 2014.
“We at Fortum want to respond to the requirements set by digitalisation and a
changing working life, and we want to get the best possible benefit from new
technologies in our daily work. The head office move strongly supports this
objective,” notes Fortum’s Arto Räty, Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs
and Communications. “The goal is to promote the work well-being of our
personnel by offering an inspiring working environment and the opportunity for
flexible working,” Räty continues.
Fortum’s new head office will be a multi-space office offering space solutions
that accommodate various working needs. Based on the work, employees can select
comfortable spaces for open team work, project work, creative work, or quiet
work. Efficient co-working is supported by latest technological solutions.
Fortum is reviewing the continuation of its current Keilaniemi head office and
has selected real estate and investment management company Jones Lang LaSalle
Finland Oy (JLL) to partner in this work. The primary alternative is to sell
the building. The construction of the building was completed in 1976, and it
served initially as the head office of Neste. Located in a maritime setting,
the Keilaniemi head office building is about 90 meters high and is one of
Finland’s tallest high-rises. The zoning amendment that took effect last year
allows the building to be repurposed for residential use and for service and
commercial use. It is also possible to build two, low-rise residential
apartment buildings in the area.
