This open idea and concept competition is seeking solutions for the development of a future business campus in Vantaankoski. Competitors are invited to present concepts that focus on the area's business ecosystem and the new opportunities it will create in the fields of business operations, work, occupational wellbeing and the promotion of creativity.
These concept descriptions should include an operational idea for the area and a description of the ecosystem formed by the businesses, services, functionalities, transport connections, buildings and infrastructure there. The competition entries may cover all of these aspects, or focus on only some of them.
The competition is being organised by SRV Group Plc and Sanoma Corporation in cooperation with the City of Vantaa. VTT (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland) supports the organisers.
Located by the Ring Rail Line in the immediate vicinity of the intersection between Ring Road III and the national road 3 to Tampere, the area of Vantaankoski will be the concept development platform and pilot site. Plans have been made to at least double the current 3,600 jobs in Vantaankoski. The realisation time and process stages are left open.
The renewed business campus will combine features emphasising new functionality, comfort and attractiveness in an innovative manner. The design must take account of sustainability and ecological effectiveness, and competitors are also encouraged to make use of the area's existing functionalities and infrastructure.
The competition is open to anyone who submits an entry complying with the instructions in this competition programme. Each participant may only submit a single entry. The participants can be individual persons or groups of people. Businesses, educational institutions and organisations are encouraged to participate. The competition entries may be written in Finnish, Swedish or English.
Any entry shall have the postmark of 29 February or earlier to be qualified. The competition result will be resolved by 1 April 2016.
Competition entries must be delivered by post or another carrier company to the address below before the deadline for entries. The sender will cover the costs of postage.
