Publication of Talotekniikka is to transfer from Talotekniikka-Julkaisut Oy to Sanoma Technology Publishing, in a move intended to provide professionals in the construction industry with a better-quality and more wide-ranging magazine serving their needs.
Talotekniikka is Finland’s leading title serving professionals in building design, contracting, construction-related retailing and services, and the construction industry. The magazine appears in print eight times a year and has a circulation of 6,328, and is also available in a mobile edition.
As energy efficient requirements become stricter and the need for revamping and modernising existing buildings grows, the role of building technology is set to grow even further in the future.
“We wanted to give Talotekniikka a strong professional publisher and one that is capable of developing the magazine to meet the growing needs of its readers and their changing media expectations,” says Jarmo Kuitunen, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Talotekniikka-Julkaisut. “I believe that transferring publication of the magazine to Sanoma Technology Publishing will give the magazine greater potential to provide construction industry professionals with a more comprehensive overview of the opportunities and challenges affecting the various parts of the industry.”
Talotekniikka will join the current portfolio of Sanoma Technology Publishing, which includes Finland’s leading construction weekly, Rakennuslehti, the home and living title, Kodinrakentaja, and the technology weekly, 3T, which was launched at the beginning of this year.
“Talotekniikka will complement our portfolio very well and will strengthen our position as Finland’s leading publisher of construction industry titles,” says Heikki Nurmela, Managing Director of Sanoma Technology Publishing. “With Talotekniikka, we will be able to offer readers a better opportunity to keep up-to-date on new developments in the construction industry, as well as new trends, issues, and the background shaping the rapidly changing world of construction today. Talotekniikka will also significantly strengthen our offering for advertisers in the construction field.”
The first issue of Talotekniikka to be published by Sanoma Technology Publishing will appear on 26 September.
