How is the service carried out?
The work will be conducted efficiently in three phases. In the first phase we analyze the current state and investment needs of the service network including real estate and services operations. In the second phase we describe the service network’s development alternatives and carry out the costing based on the chosen development alternatives.
In the last phase we create and finalize the end-result material that supports decision-making and which the client can use for example in council meetings. We are also prepared to present the results in city hall and council meetings if desired.
