Joint ventures

Joint ventures 

Joint ventures have become a more common way for us to carry out large projects and to develop our business. In joint ventures, YIT is not only a constructor or developer, but a co-owner of a specific project or a business idea. That way, business can be developed in a longer perspective and in tighter and well-functioning co-operation with joint-venture partners.

In June 2016, YIT and HGR Property Partners established a joint venture called Regenero, which will focus on developing sizeable combined apartment, commercial and business premises projects in the Helsinki metropolitan area. YIT’s area of expertise in the company includes turnkey contracting, infrastructure construction and segment-specific project expertise. HGR, on the other hand, has strong expertise in commercial development work, particularly in business ideas and concept design, as well as company-specific specialised solutions. Regenero acquired its first property in Espoo for a development project in January 2017.
