Exceptions in the opening hours of the office of OYY

There have been sudden and unfortunate exceptions in the opening hours of our office lately. It is possible that this may occur again.

The reason for the unfortunate situation is the nearby renovation: bitumen vapors float from the worksite to our office causing headaches and nausea. During the worst vapors we have to work remotely. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

We aim to improve the situation so that we don’t have to close our office suddenly like this in the future.

Our office, however, answers the phone (+358 50 407 9623) and the e-mail (toimisto@nulloyy.fi) normally even when the office is closed.
