Evolvit Oy: ”Quality and reliability”, Alberga Business Park, Espoo

Evolvit Oy wanted their new premises to communicate innovation and competence.

Evolvit is an ICT company whose key values are customer service and client satisfaction. The company specialises in delivery and maintenance of business intelligence solutions.

"Our clientele consists of Finland’s largest listed companies and groups operating in the banking and insurance industry. The premises must reflect the same quality and reliability for which our own customer offering stands," President Perttu Heinonen emphasises.

Three selection criteria

As the company was expanding and recruiting new personnel, its former office did no longer fulfil the company’s demands and required upgrading to better suit the image of this highly innovative and competent ICT company. Three of the selection criteria were particularly high on the list: the new office should have good connections, elegant spaces and versatile services in the neighbourhood.

Mr Heinonen says, "Services were particularly important at the making the selection. In our experience both the productivity and work satisfaction go up when all services necessary, such as occupational health care, banks, post offices, supermarkets and luncheons can be found at a walking distance from the workplace."

There were totally five alternative locations for the office while making the selection. According to Heinonen, the one that best fulfilled the company’s wishes was Alberga Business Park which is located right next to Sello Shopping Centre in Espoo.

Office as you wish

Evolvit made a reservation on their new premises well ahead, approximately one year before their completion. "This way we could fulfil all our wishes, for example, when it comes to surface finishes, number and size of rooms," Heinonen states and continues, "We are extremely happy with the end result. I can hardly ever imagine having our office anywhere else."

Evolvit took an active role in the design of the premises and worked in close co-operation with NCC’s liaison from signing the lease up to moving in. Mr Heinonen states, "NCC was very understanding while we were contemplating over different solutions. They had revised layouts delivered promptly."
