Louhintahiekka has been awarded the Kauppalehti Certificate of Success. A company that has earned a certificate is recognized as a better partner, and the certificate also anticipates the future success of the company. A successful company is one of those that a financial analytics professional has found to perform better than their peers. Financial success is built on several different areas: skilled business management, dedicated staff, efficient processes, and customer understanding.
The analysis measures the company's financial performance in six different areas: growth, profitability, earnings, liquidity, solvency and risk tolerance. In each area, the company is compared to companies in its own size class, to all companies and to companies in its own industry. Becoming successful requires more than good liquidity and non-payment. This model, based on an analysis of six components, identifies both risks and differentiates good companies. The successful company is a pillar of Finnish competitiveness and development. Common to all Successes is vision, courage, and a desire to do business better than others.
During the autumn, Louhintahiekka's Board of Directors has appointed Aapo Lahtinen as Deputy CEO and Deputy CEO.
“For a long time now, Aapo has been successfully leading the management of our company and developing our business throughout the organization. Under Aapo's leadership, we have been able to expand and develop our business in line with the company's strategy.
With its current role, Aapo strengthens the administrative base of our company.

In January 2021, a major street renovation began in Helsinki on Caloniuksenkatu, Kaarlenkatu and Helsinginkatu. The main contractor in the project is Mining Sand. The great street work began with small cobblestones when water pipes and sewers were first renovated in small construction sites. The work is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
Part of the water pipeline was built in the early 20th century, so in connection with the street renovation, the pipes under the street will be renewed. Cables and street structures will also be renewed. Water supply lines will be built at 1,600 meters and sewer pipes at 2,000 meters. In addition to excavation and backfilling work, the works require e.g. mining and blasting in a vibrant urban environment.
In cooperation with the City of Helsinki and JKMM Architects, NCC has developed the We Land office building in the Ruoholahti area, the core of which is open spaces, high-quality restaurants, cafés and events open to actors and residents in the area. The building will be implemented in accordance with the BREEAM environmental classification, with the goal of an internationally exceptional BREEAM Outstanding rating. The estimated completion date is the end of 2023.
Louhintahiekka implements the earthworks of the site, e.g. excavation work, rock drilling, rock ramming, drilling piling, rock reinforcement work, rock injection and reinforcement and concreting work of drilled drilling piles.
As part of a carbon-neutral future, Helen will build a bioheat plant in Vuosaari, which will utilize unique energy efficiency and waste heat from flue gases will be utilized in an unprecedented way.
In May 2020, Louhintahiekka Oy has started contracting for Moss Park Street, which belongs to the Lamminrahka residential area.

The centers of both Lamminrahka and Ojala will be built along the street and it will be implemented on a slow-moving, green park street with street-side parking lots. Roundabouts will be built at the intersections of the collector streets.
Up-to-date information on the progress of all Ojala-Lamminrahka infrastructure contracts and the effects on mobility in the area has been compiled on Lamminrahka's website.
The location of the new recycling plant in the circular economy concentration formed by Vantaa Energy and Remeo Oy along the highways is excellent for thinking in accordance with the circular economy.
