About us

Experts with a new and innovative attitude

Uudella innovatiivisella tavalla ajatteleva asiantuntija

In 1985 Professor Yrjänä Haahtela assembled a small team of professionals and researchers to engage in property development and to both teach and advance the field of construction economics.

The Haahtela companies have applied this proven concept to become an expanding corporation already employing more than 160 professionals with recognised expertise in many sectors. Though the company’s history reaches back as far as 1975, its work in the first decade was confined to part-time research. This early passion for pursuing a general interest in research work continued over the following decades and remains at the core of current operations, underpinning our expertise and competence.

We are proud of our staff, who are innovative professionals committed to the ways of working that we have developed together over the years.

Our team is highly diverse, with professionals in many fields including architecture, mathematics, programming, engineering, building construction, political sciences and economics. Staff members have a wide range of academic backgrounds, with graduate and undergraduate students from technical colleges, polytechnics and universities, and all educational levels from journeyman to PhD.

We do not shy away from challenges, and have built an organisation that stands ready, willing and able to meet the demanding requirements, overcome the varying problems, and achieve the diverse goals of our customers.
