The multipurpose arena will also cater to various events, including fairs, conferences, and concerts. 

The total estimated cost for the first segment of the implementation phase is set at €56m ($60.99m), with YIT’s share being approximately €47m.

The second phase involves the construction of two training rinks, with the development phase launched at the end of September last year.  

The development phase of the third and final phase began last November and includes the renovation of an old ice rink. 

This three-phase contract will be included in YIT’s order book for the first quarter of 2024.

The award comes after YIT and NRC Group Finland were appointed to provide services for Area 2 of the Espoo City Rail Link in the country last week.
