Building the Bigger Picture Piece by Piece  

Finland's biggest events park in Hämeenlinna

The construction of Kantola Event Park began in Hämeenlinna in July 2014. In this multifaceted contract, Destia carried out, among other things, the foundation engineering, the installation of ten hectares of turf in the event area, the installation of the power network around the area and the construction of traffic connections.

Foundation engineering in the area differed from usual in that slightly contaminated soil was scraped away from the whole area, and was used to build an artificial hill covered in clean soil. A total of four hectares of turf were laid in the event area. Now, Finland’s largest event park can host concerts and other events attracting up to 50,000 people. The park will be fully complete by May 2015. The contract has been implemented utilising our expertise in automation.
