LEMMINKÄINEN AND ILMARINEN SIGN MAJOR SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT

Lemminkäinen Group's Tekmanni Service Oy and Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance
Company have extended their comprehensive, long-term partnership agreement
concerning real estate services. 

The agreement covers the servicing and maintenance of technical systems in
office and commercial properties as well as management services related to
their day-to-day operation. The 21 properties in question have a combined floor
area of approx. 350,000 square metres and are all located in the Helsinki
metropolitan area. Ilmarinen's head office in the Ruoholahti district of
Helsinki also falls within the scope of the agreement. 

Tekmanni Service will perform daily real estate management services and regular
servicing of HEVAC, refrigeration, automation, fire and security systems as
well as necessary repair works and modifications. Tekmanni Service will also
ensure that the technical building systems are used correctly and that all
necessary operational checks and inspections are carried out. Tekmanni Service
will also handle the operational management of electrical systems at
Ilmarinen's properties. 

"Ilmarinen is a very important customer for us and we share with them a common
desire to develop our partnership. Ilmarinen's practice of continuously
assessing its providers of real estate maintenance services is mutually
beneficial. Tekmanni Service has received good marks from these assessments,
which have helped us to develop our operations and services," says the Managing
Director of  Tekmanni Service, Marcus Karsten.
