City of Espoo has lot of facilities that require constant maintenance. Combined with continuous savings, it has been challenging for the city to keep facilities in good condition. Result has been that many facilities has been forced to be demolished and build again. This has been experienced as very expensive for the city. Usually the warranty of service providers is only 2 years. After that expenses fall to the responsibility of the city.
