In the alliance model, the various parties of the group are jointly and severally responsible for the project along with the commissioner, the Kainuu joint municipalities for social and health services. In addition to the commissioner, the alliance consists of Sweco, Skanska and Caverion. The goal of the allianceis to realise a functional and operational hospital that is efficient in terms of life cycle costs in accordance with the commissioner’s wishes. The alliance’s principles include shared decision-making, continuous development and a value-for-money attitude.

The current stage of the alliance’s development covers project planning and preparations for the implementation phase. This development phase will result in sufficient plans for the construction decision, for setting goal costs and for moving on to the implementation phase. The implementation phase of the project started in February 2017.
