Finninno Mobile Precast Concrete Factory

Excellent solution for residential construction in metropolitan suburban areas


Savings in costs and guaranteed supply security of precast concrete sections

We also deliver entire mobile precast concrete factories to construction sites. A mobile precast concrete factory that can be transferred from one site to another is an excellent solution for the building of new residential areas in the suburbs of large cities, with the scope of the construction project being at least 1,000 new housing units.

Maximum efficiency for construction

Finninno mobile precast concrete factory gives the customer maximum benefit in residential construction projects with the following structural solution:

  • intermediate floors and associated balconies are concreted at the site
  • load-bearing partition walls, staircases and elevator shafts are made from precast concrete sections
  • facades are made from precast inner envelope sections
  • plinths are delivered as precast plinth sections.

In this case, the residential construction project is practically self-sufficient in terms of precast concrete sections.


1. Planned costs of manufacture of precast concrete sections are fulfilled

The manufacturing costs of the precast concrete sections remain within the budget despite business fluctuations.

2. Quality of precast concrete sections

Precast concrete sections manufactured by the builder using the new molds ensure that the planned quality level is reached.

3. Location of factory

Logistics and the delivery schedules of the precast concrete sections stay well under control when the factory is located close to the construction site.

We designed and delivered a Finninno mobile precast concrete factory to the Moscow area in 2013 for the manufacture of precast concrete sections in a construction project. The project comprised the construction of about 2,000 housing units.

The architectural, structural and prefabricated section design of the project was carried out by Arkkitehtisuunnittelu Jukka Tikkanen Ltd. The developer’s building contractor was Lemminkäinen Corporation.

Meetings between the contractor, the architectural office and Finninno combined the expertise of each party in order to achieve the best possible outcome. This type of comprehensive design and project management contributes significantly to the success of the construction project and brings maximum benefit to the developer.

  • production facility of 23 m x 86 m
  • three 10-tonne overhead cranes
  • two-sided battery mold with 20 shells
  • two-sided staircase mold
  • production consultation.

This precast concrete factory can produce:

  • load-bearing partition walls for 2,000 housing units per year
  • or load-bearing partition walls + precast inner envelopes for 1,300 housing units per year.
