Finnish construction is among the best in the world. The cutting-edge Finnish construction work is well known for its quality and the reliability of the contractors. Construction is well organized and regulated, while the parties involved are amongst the most comprehensively educated in the world. With projects developing into more complex and broader forms, the management of the projects require more and more resources and professional know-how. We at Vison provide consulting, training and counselling for all things related to demanding projects, all the while making sure that the projects reach their goals within the given budget and time frame. Without compromising quality.
We offer consulting in the procurement of complex projects and services and Lean Construction, as well as project and organisation level training and counselling. We have worked as consultants in nearly 100 integrated project deliveries and in dozens of other demanding public procurements.
We bring all the parties involved in a project together, all the while utilising our combined know-how to prevent the loss of value and guarantee the best possible foundation for the success of the project.
Our objective is to improve and refine Finnish project delivery and Lean Construction and by doing so, make Finnish real estate development and construction the best in the world.
