Business cycle monitoring

The Finnish construction market is ever more tightly linked to the global economy and events outside our country's borders. Rapal’s Forecast service makes business cycle monitoring a fixed and routine part of your organisation’s operations.

The Forecast service includes a wide-ranging quarterly market survey. During a meeting with our consultants, we examine the prevailing economic situation and draw up a series of measures required by it together with our client’s key personnel.

Maintenance cost comparison

We analyze for you how much your municipality pays for street and park maintenance compared to other infrastructure maintainers. Cost comparison is an economical way to increase transparency of the financial effects of decision making.

In 2017, altogether 18 Finnish municipalities participated in the cost comparison. 2017 covers  2,6 million residents and 250 MEUR maintenance costs. The size of municipalities ranges from middle-sized municipalities of 30 000 inhabitants to the capital of over 600 000 residents.

Environmental calculation

Controlling carbon dioxide emissions from infrastructure is one way of tackling climate change. We help you achieve the environmental targets set for your project and calculate the emissions of the construction and maintenance of your infrastructure project.

The calculation model draws on cost structures created in a development project for infrastructure cost management. It is based on modelling of construction activity all the way through to machine work and material consumption.
