Are is responsible for the maintenance of the Technopolis properties in Oulu, Jyväskylä and Tampere in Finland and in St Petersburg, Russia. Maintenance operations are managed efficiently and with proven results in line with the Intelligent Maintenance concept.
The working relationship between Are and Technopolis is based on the client’s quality requirements. Are customizes its operations and resources accordingly. The operations are managed in line with the Smart Management concept, taking into account the specific needs of each property and its users, in addition to the efficiency requirements and profit expectations for the property throughout its life cycle.
In terms of the functionality of the technical building solutions, each property is maintained individually and in a timely manner. As well as being specific to each property, the operations are as consistent as possible, regardless of the building and the people involved. Experiences and best practices are shared at regular meetings, and the management system behind Smart Maintenance ensures that best practices are followed in all locations.

The future is made today
Smart Maintenance solutions take into account the entire life cycle of the property, and operations are planned far into the future. Working with Technopolis has been highly successful not only because of the systematic monitoring and the analysis of results, but also thanks to a genuinely customer-focused operating model. Continuous learning and development in cooperation with the client ensure continued success in the future.
