At Kokkola campus area there are several educational institutions: Central Ostrobotnhia adult education center, Chydenius institution, University of Applied Sciences Centria and Torkinmäki primary school. Campus hall, which was completed in January, has been built primarily to as a consortium of universities in Central Ostrobothnia, and the facilities can also be rented for other uses. During the day, the hall’s main occupants are school children and students. Sports clubs and other outdoor activity associatons use the facility in the evening.

Project Requirements

The designer’s architectural specifications were that the campus hall should not only look like a sports venue, but that it should also function as a concert hall and be able to accommodate a variety of meetings, parties and other events. The seamless, fully bonded liquid polyurethane flooring is easy to clean and maintain. The impervious, dense surface provides a very hygienic and safe solution.

Sika Solutions

As a ductile material, Sika ComfortFloor® reduces noise and is extremely comfortable for foot traffic. The flooring system fulfills the most stringent EU criteria for flooring air quality in an indoor environment.

One important criterion was to design flooring which is highly wearresistant and easy to maintain. The walls in the washing and communal areas were treated with seamless Sikagard® Hygienic coatings.

Sika ComfortFloor® -flooring was used in almost every floor in Campus hall. The flooring surface in the wet rooms was made anti-slip by using glass beads in the final topcoat layer.
