Once the project is completed, the leasable area of the Microkatu campus will exceed 50,000 square meters. The pre-occupancy rate of the new office building is 100 percent. The clients are the Savonlinna Municipal Association and the City of Kuopio.
“The Savonlinna Municipal Association and the City of Kuopio are an excellent complement to our innovative community. It is great to have a third major education organization on our campus, in addition to the University of Eastern Finland and the Savonia Polytechnic. Our Microkatu campus has a very exceptional center of expertise, employing over 10,000 people daily," says Hannu Eronen, Director of Technopolis Kuopio.
Construction work on the new office building and car park extension will begin immediately. Both projects will be completed in June 2020. The new office building is applying for Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
Technopolis Kuopio is a joint venture in which Technopolis owns 60 percent and Cooperative KPY 40 percent.
