The sea connects generations of water works and shore construction
The sea is vast and unknown but, at its best, the diversity, winds and waves can offer a lifelong learning process. This is how two of our water works and shore construction specialists, Construction Manager Urpo Merivirta (61) and Site Manager Jyrki Jussila (28), see the sea.
From the roof of the head office to genuine cooperation with customers
Petri Saarinen has come a long way at YIT, from Foreman to Vice President of Structural Engineering. Saarinen still considers himself a relative newcomer to infrastructure engineering. He enjoys open collaboration with customers on projects, as that makes success taste even sweeter.
Oodi construction site raised Essi a creative sector professional
“Oodi is a wonderful inheritance to leave for future generations. It’s been great to see how people have embraced the building,” says YIT supervisor Essi Tuomenoja, 24, who arrived at the Oodi site in May 2017 as a supervisor trainee and left it in February 2019 as a supervisor with solid experience of the demanding work of an area manager.
