Expert regional planning and foundation and geotechnical engineering services boost the growth of Hoivatilat Oyj

Working together with Maveplan under a framework agreement has helped Hoivatilat Oyj achieve great savings in foundation work.

"With Maveplan’s service, the savings we achieve offset the costs many times over."Ari Hyvärinen,

Head of building contracting activities

Suomen Hoivatilat Oyj

The project

Hoivatilat Oyj wanted to work with Maveplan thanks to previous positive experiences. The selection was also supported by Maveplan’s versatile expertise and flexible working culture, which are important attributes in today’s building projects, which sometimes have challenging schedules. Extensive cooperation between Maveplan and Hoivatilat Oyj has mostly focused on geotechnical investigations and engineering and regional planning.

The challenge

Hoivatilat Oyj has enjoyed strong growth in the past few years, causing the company to need more geotechnical investigation and engineering and regional planning services. As a result, separate and individual contracts with several suppliers were no longer financially sensible, and there were also scheduling issues. Hoivatilat Oyj needed a skilled partner who could offer comprehensive and cost-efficient solutions tailored to their needs.

The solution

Maveplan has quickly – and within the agreed schedule – completed several projects for Hoivatilat Oyj and provided excellent support for laying building foundations. Foundation work can be demanding, but the comprehensive statements and cost-effective plans provided by Maveplan have made it a breeze. Clear and well-prepared plans are valued in contracting. The customer relationship with Maveplan has developed into framework agreement-like cooperation. Where necessary, Maveplan also offers further planning, earthworks supervision and other construction site services.

The customer
