YIT has signed an agreement with the City of Kouvola to implement a multi-purpose building in Valkeala with the life cycle model. 

The area of the building is approximately 10,000 m2, and the value of the contract for YIT is approximately EUR 38 million, which will be recorded in the order book for the second quarter.
 
The new multi-purpose building will house school facilities for basic education and early childhood education, as well as facilities for the local library, youth services, a catering kitchen and the Kymsote family centre. The multi-purpose building will also serve as a versatile leisure and activity centre for residents and associations in evenings and weekends. 

In accordance with the life cycle model, YIT is responsible for the overall planning, construction and maintenance of the multi-purpose building and its yard areas for a 20-year service period at a pre-agreed cost. 

The construction will start next summer with preparatory work. The multi-purpose building and yard area will be completed in the summer of 2024.
