Monitoring and forecasting the operating environment of construction in Finland and internationally
We are a Finnish expert company specialising in the construction markets. We provide construction products manufacturers, construction companies, product resellers, organisations, investors, interest groups and public sector actors the knowledge about the construction markets they need to plan their activities.
We monitor developments in the domestic construction markets and forecast future trends. Monitoring enables us e.g. to offer construction materials manufacturers information on the markets, their volume as well as their own business environment thereby helping them in strategic planning, setting their production and sales goals, becoming internationalised or acquiring companies.
Besides monitoring construction trends, we also conduct wide-ranging research, surveys and analyses on construction, use of the resources of construction, and the impacts of construction as well as domestic and international construction markets.
