Project Development Services

In addition to separate consulting services, we offer overall development services. As the only consultant in Finland, we can take the responsibility for the whole project, from the initial idea to the ready-to-build park.

Our largest service package is a set of all the services that a project owner needs to advance the project from idea to building permit.

The project owner can be a fund, an international developer without personnel in Finland, or a pure investor. Also landowners, or a group of landowners, who have got part of the project development financing arranged through our parent company Etha are typical customers.

During the development phase, the goal is to ensure that the entire project runs smoothly and on schedule. Stakeholder communication and coordination is essential. This means collaboration and open communication with the project owner, the landowners, the municipality, local residents, authorities and consultants.

Each of our projects has to withstand both public review and possible complaints.

Our job is to ensure that the project is well structured and that the studies performed are carefully made. Open communication, as well as informing and listening to the public at an early stage of the project, are key.
