COOPERATION PARTNERS

Partners are strategically important for ICON. As we choose our partners correctly, we can grow at the pace we desire. This is why we select our partners on the basis of a highly precise validation process. In the text below, we present a few of our partners and describe what we have done with them.

Liabilities: We always negotiate financing of projects on a project-specific basis. Such negotiations have included all financial institutions known in Finland. Projects that we have completed have been funded by, e.g., Nordea, Danske Bank, Aktia, and Savings Bank.

Accounting firm: The auditing firm and advisor of ICON Corporation Oy and its subsidiaries is PriceWaterhouseCoopers Oy.

Specialists: Our projects have been evaluated and analysed by, e.g., Newsec, Catella, and Realia Management. We use authorised operators.

Contractors: We put all contracts up for competitive tender, in the scope required by the method of implementation.

Architects and other designers: We retain architects who are best suited for the project in question and its various phases. Design solutions have been implemented for us by, e.g., Tommila Architects, Arkkitehtitoimisto Ruuskanen, Avarc, and Arkkitehtitoimisto Turtiainen.
