In the Vaasa region, there are several smart building projects underway – the keywords being cooperation and visions for the future.
Vaasa takes part in the European Commission’s IRIS project (Integrated and Replicable solutions for co-creation in Sustainable cities) in order to develop, test, and adopt ambitious energy, mobility, and ICT initiatives. The project is in tune with the city’s Carbon Neutral Vaasa 202X goals.
Cooperation within the construction industry is now being implemented widely through alliance contracting models. The H building of the Vaasa central hospital is soon completed by the Bothnia High5 alliance, and the renovation of the University of Vaasa campus has also got off to a good start.
The industrial investments in Vaasa are significant, too. The Wärtsilä Smart Energy Hub and the modern facilities of ABB have been commissioned, and the huge projects of GigaVaasa, Johnson Matthey, and Freyr Battery are in progress.
