What is

Campus Development?

The purpose of the campus development is to build our university campus into a vibrant and attractive meeting place in accordance with the principles of sustainable development. The first phase will focus on the renovation of buildings and facilities. However, changes in facilities are always accompanied by the development and change of practices. We aim to consider the needs and opportunities of studying in the future, thus creating innovative and comfortable spaces for everyone.

Campus development is implemented with

Alliance contracting model

Campus development is implemented with the alliance contracting model, which is founded on a collective agreement between the operators and bases on their cooperative actions. The operators form an alliance that is responsible for the execution of the project due to jointly agreed aims. In the alliance, it is central to share the innovations, risks, and successes as well as learn throughout the process. We aim to achieve advance both economically and schedule-wise. Compared to the traditional competitive bidding model, the alliance contracting model makes it possible to work more flexibly and continuously. The client in the alliance is the real estate company Vaasan Merikampus oy. The other alliance partners are Architecture agency K2S Oy, HPAC-technology company Ramboll Finland Oy, and building services engineering company Granlund Pohjanmaa Oy. The main contractor of the alliance is PEAB Oy.
