This project is the first social PPP in the country*. Espoo is Finland’s 2nd largest city located close to Helsinki. This is also Meridiam’s third project in Finland.
The project is part of city of Espoo’s investment program called “Schools in shape” and will contribute to approximately 15% of the identified needs to guarantee healthy and functional premises for schools and day care centers in the city. It intends to enhance the learning environment by providing safe and healthy spaces for students and school staff and by improving air quality in the premises.
The project is a 22-year contract to design, build, finance and maintain 5 schools and 3 daycare centers for over 4,000 pupils.
The design and construction work as well as Operation & Maintenance of the Project are conducted by YIT, Meridiam’s partner in the previous E-18 I and II projects.
The Project primarily intends to improve the learning environment for pupils and teachers and provide a high-quality educational environment (i.e. improving air quality). It will also provide the city of Espoo with additional capacity for 4,000 students/pupils.
Given its critical importance and pioneering nature, the project was selected by the UN as a demonstration of what cities can do to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
