Koja carries out Zsar's HVAC planning
Zsar Outlet Village is located in Vaalimaa at the busiest border crossing point between Russia and the EU, in an area that is expected to develop into a commercial hot spot in a few years time, not least due to the motorway constructions from both Helsinki and St. Petersburg to the gates of Zsar. It will be the first outlet village in Finland focusing on premium brand stores as well as restaurants, cafés and other leisure services.
The development company behind Zsar is East Finland Real Estate EFRE. The first phase of the village - 12,000m2 - will be opened in 2017. Totally it will include 20,000 m2 leasable area, and it will be opened in 2018. EFRE has also secured a further 13 hectares of commercial land around Zsar's current 10 hectare site. The land is reserved for EFRE's future retail investments.
Koja Oy, the leading Finnish engineering and manufacturing company, has been appointed to carry out the design and planning of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and electrical planning for Zsar. Koja has 80 years of experience in designing state of the art energy and cost saving HVAC solutions for several shopping centers, retail facilities and cruise vessels globally.
