Are to deliver building services for new SAMK campus in Pori

Are Group and KOy Porin Asema-Aukio, a part of Citycon, have signed an agreement on a building services project for the new campus of the Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK). Work will commence immediately and the campus will be completed in spring 2017.


The total value of the project is roughly EUR 9.5 million. Are will deliver a comprehensive building services package for the new campus, the total surface area of which is 23,000 square metres. The building services of the campus are designed to make it an efficient, modern and flexible study environment for the SAMK, its principal user. Energy efficiency and modern building services solutions will have a central role in the construction project.


“We had good experience of collaborating with Are on implementing and maintaining efficient building services,” says Risto Seppo, Property Development Director at Citycon.


“Are has a lot of experience with similar demanding projects and a proven ability to deliver. This project also highlights the expertise we have in offering guidance at the planning stage, where we can work with designers and users to identify the most efficient and suitable building services solutions. Our local staff will ensure that the K-Supermarket grocery store and the pharmacy operating within the property will be able to remain open to customers during the project,” says Seppo Merimaa, Area Manager at Are.


The new campus will be located in the centre of Pori by the Asema-aukio square next to the railway station. There is an old office and commercial building on the site which will be torn down and replaced with 4 and 5-storey office buildings housing the SAMK’s teaching facilities.
