YIT to build a senior centre in Munkkiniemi, Helsinki


YIT has signed an agreement with Saga Palvelut Oy and Ruissalo Säätiö to build Saga senior centre in the neighbourhood of Munkkiniemi, Helsinki. The construction will start in the beginning of 2015, and the project will be completed in summer 2016. The total value of the contract for YIT is approximately EUR 11 million, and it was recorded in the order backlog in 2014.

The senior centre named Saga Dosentinlinna will host 71 apartments for seniors in poor health. The service provider will be Saga Care Oy. Dosentinlinna will be constructed in connection with the previously constructed senior centres of Saga Munkkiniemi - Dosentinpuisto and Dosentinrinne - and it will be connected to them with a gateway.
