About Us

The foundation of successful construction lies in reliable foundation structures. Whether it’s an office building, a tunnel, or a parking facility, the soil conditions must be assessed layer by layer to serve as the basis for the design process. Decisions made at this stage have long-term impacts on the costs and functionality of the buildings, requiring professional design and the use of reliable foundational data.

For over 55 years, Pohjatekniikka Oy has been contributing to the growth and development of the Helsinki region. Today, our expertise extends beyond Finland to include the Baltic countries, Sweden, Norway, and other European and Asian countries. Our specialties include soil investigations, geotechnical design, and construction site surveys. Our comprehensive services cover the entire design cycle, from research programs to construction supervision. We have undertaken a wide range of projects, including residential buildings from cottages to multi-story structures, industrial buildings from small warehouses to nuclear power plants, and infrastructure projects such as roads, highways, bridges, and tunnels. Furthermore, Pohjatekniikka Oy operates a subsidiary, Viageo Oü, in Estonia.
