We are now building the future – together!
Updated 25th May 2020
During the past few months, smooth everyday life and related safety issues have taken on a new meaning. We have all been forced to adopt a new perspective on living, moving around and working – and at YIT that’s what we have also done. Our priority has been to secure the continuity of operations on our sites in order to complete the homes, commercial properties, schools, roads, water treatment plants and water towers that we are building on schedule and according to our promises. At the same time, we have developed our operations to serve our customers better and in a safe manner even during the coronavirus pandemic.
We are building for the future right now
How are our sites doing?
New homes under construction
A total of 1,650 new homes are under construction as we have launched the construction of several apartment buildings in different countries during the spring. The preparation and planning of the Perhelä hybrid block in Järvenpää is progressing on schedule despite the exceptional situation.
YIT to participate in the construction of the new HUS eye hospital in Helsinki
YIT and HUS Kiinteistöt Oy have signed a contract for the implementation of the new eye hospital in Meilahti, Helsinki, Finland. The development phase, which has just been launched, will last until the end of 2020.
30,000 kilometres of roads to maintain – the amount of take-away package waste along the roadside is increasing
We maintain the public and private road and street networks of the ELY Centres, cities and municipalities. We also carry out street and road construction as well as green and municipal engineering work. The PANU Service Center, which is on duty 24 hours a day, assists contractors in monitoring weather conditions and providing up-to-date information.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is already visible on the roadside: the amount of litter in the form of take-away packages is increasing. With the summer coming, the problem is certain to get worse. Dumping waste involves seasonal variation. The contract areas of YIT Road Maintenance collect and sort all waste in accordance with an environmental plan. The bill for cleaning is ultimately paid by the taxpayer.
We want to share and increase confidence in the future from the entire urban development’s point of view. So, let’s hold on to our dreams, big or small. The lively, functional and sustainable cities and towns of the future are built together.
Together we can do it,
