The dental clinic in eno could continue in the village

Due to indoor air problems, the dental clinic in Eno, a village in Joensuu, could no longer continue in its old premises. There was a real risk for termination and relocation further away from the service. 

However, the City of Joensuu did find a solution, and the service remained. The school, already operating in adaptable buildings from Adapteo, was extended, to accommodate the dental clinic. 

Scaling up the existing facilities was an easy way to get more space to fit the clinic. 

 

 The village of Eno had previous experience of using adaptable buildings and at the time when the need from the clinic arose, the municipality was in the process of procuring new facilities for the local school. A decision was taken to include also the dental clinic. 

 

The residents have been pleased that the service will continue to be maintained in their own vicinity. Without the current solution, there would have been a risk that dental services in Eno would have ceased.

The combination of premises effortlessly brought synergies when the new facilities were connected to building services of the school building. This made setting up the dental clinic faster and less expensive.

The flexibility of adaptable buildings proved its worth at the dental clinic in Eno 

 Antti Turunen says that adaptable buildings may become increasingly popular as healthcare facilities in the future. 

On the one hand, the modular concept provides flexibility – a solution to a sudden need for space can be implemented in just a few months. And, on the other hand, it is easy to get rid of any redundant facilities. 

It is also possible to combine adaptable facilities created for different purposes in such a way that a complex of municipal services, an entire service block, can be created on a single site.
