for the maintenance and upkeep of the buildings for a period of 25 years. The
total value of the project is EUR 93.5 million. 

Kuopio City Board selected Lemminkäinen as the service provider for the life
cycle project on 27 July 2009. Lemminkäinen will combine expertise from its
various business sectors in the project. The service provider, Lemminkäinen PPP
