The construction of Viestikatu 7 began in March, 2012, and it was completed at the end of January, 2013. The building's surface area is approximately 12,000 gross square meters and volume approximately 46,000 cubic meters.
Technopolis' Viestikatu 7 property has become the first in Kuopio to receive a gold-level LEED® certificate. The property, owned by Technopolis and contracted by Skanska Talonrakennus Oy, did especially well in the sustainable land use category.
Viestikatu 7 is located within the existing city structure with good public transport connections and services close by. Spaces for low-emission vehicles were implemented in the yard, and a number of green areas were left on the lot even after construction.
