The supervisor of the rail line construction comes from the world of renovation

Toni Paananen (builder, B.Sc.) has started as the supervisor of the Länsimetro rail line’s building project.

Paananen will supervise the rail line project starting in early summer, which includes, among other things, concrete work and installation of elements. The supervisor functions as an important link between the contractor and the customer, and the work also includes following up on the schedule and checking invoices.

Paananen has had a long career in renovation; the last seven years he worked at Lemminkäinen (now YIT) in hotel and business location projects. His career has included, among others, the Cumulus Hotel (now Scandic) in Töölö.

“Länsimetro was attractive because this provides completely new challenges after renovation construction. There are a lot of similarities in construction principles – the same laws of nature work in concrete work and installation of elements, either above ground or under it. I also get to learn completely new things. Another Metro project will hardly come along in a career, so this is certainly a unique project,” says Paananen.
