Project engineer for Kivenlahti has experience of major projects – interests lie in the interface between infrastructure and house construction

Aleksi Yletyinen (Bachelor of Engineering) has begun work as a project engineer for Kivenlahti station. He will be responsible for quality management, cost control and documentation in the Kivenlahti station contract.

“I’ll work both at the site and in the office; I have a workstation in both places. I already had the opportunity to visit the Kivenlahti site and the contractor Skanska’s organisation,” says Yletyinen.

Yletyinen holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering. He completed his studies in construction engineering at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in 2018. Before the West Metro project, he worked for Destia in the REDI shopping centre project. During his studies, he worked as a trainee in the Helsinki Central Library Oodi project.

“I’m interested in major projects, they are versatile and you get to see so many aspects of construction. I’m also familiar with the project management contracting model thanks to my previous projects,” Yletyinen says.

During the first two weeks, he will be introduced to the project’s construction, finances, risk management and quality aspects.

“The West Metro project offers me new challenges. I’m particularly interested in the interface between infrastructure and house construction in the construction of the metro,” Yletyinen says.
