WHY is the Ädala Blood Centre moving?

The aim of the reconstruction of the Blood Centre is to modernise the entire building, to replace the fully depreciated water, heating, ventilation, electrical and communication systems and as the result the Blood Centre will become more modern, energy efficient and meet today’s needs. During the reconstruction of the building, the existing structural solutions will become more supportive of the necessary workflows of the Blood Centre and the facade of the building will be completely renovated. The Blood Centre gets fully new contents and a modern look.
