Destia appointed project director for the Kiiminki Ideapark development
Destia Ltd has concluded a collaboration agreement with Masku Kiinteistöt Oy for the construction of the Ideapark Commercial City in Kiiminki. An area of over 30 hectares has been earmarked for the development, and the size of the Kiiminki Ideapark retail park itself will be close to 100,000m². Construction is due to start in May 2009, and this phase will employ around 1,000 people.
Destia will act as project director for this development. Whilst it will contribute its core expertise in infrastructure construction and project leadership, it will not be assuming the role of property investor for this project. The principal commercial construction partner will be Metsäliitto Wood Products Industry (Finnforest), which has wide international experience in supplying wooden components for demanding applications in commercial and public buildings.
“Starting this kind of large-scale building project during the present economic climate is vital. Destia is a natural choice for project manager for this type of project in which infrastructure forms a major part. At Destia, we are extremely pleased that we were chosen to manage a venture that offers jobs and future prospects for the various sectors of the building industry,” states Destia’s CEO Jukka Laaksovirta.
