The project will create new taxidermic facilities for the zoological museum in the botanical garden of the University of Oulu and a Visitor Center for receiving guests at the University. Current laboratory and office space will be changed into taxidermic facilities and open multi-purpose facilities.
The glass walls of the current fern room will be demolished, and the roof pyramid will be changed to a glass ceiling. In addition, structures in the upper ceiling and waterproofing will be renewed and airtightness will be improved. Flooring and services engineering will also be renovated. Entry to the area will be made easier, among other things by adapting the main entrance for universal access.
Timetable: The construction work will be finished on 17 August 2018, and the facilities will be introduced into use starting from 1 September 2018.
