Peikko Group Global (English)

In the Core of the Construction Industry

No foundations are cast, no frames are erected, and no topping out ceremonies are held without a structural designer – you.

You have a significant impact on what solutions are specified in the plans and what solutions are ultimately used on site. And most importantly, you are the one who ensures that structures are designed according to the structural design standards and best practices.

This is why we dedicated the year 2020 to the designers. Our aim is to serve you even better.

We think that we have a pretty good understanding of your challenges, as at Peikko we have our own customer engineering function, with over 100 engineers designing for our customers – every day.

But to get a real sense of what your opinions and needs are, we conducted a series of interviews to truly kick off the Year of the Designer. I want to thank all of you who used your valuable time to take part in the interviews – your comments and views are greatly appreciated.

We learned that many things are pretty well as they stand. But there is also room for some improvement. You made good suggestions on how we can make our communications and the Peikko Designer® software even better. This is crucial, as more than 30,000 of your colleagues are working with it.

We are working on a new home base for you under the “Peikko for designers” umbrella. Our aim is to come up with the content that will make your job easier and quicker, as well as more reliable and efficient.

While doing so, we will continue to develop the best practices, tools and products, so that you can achieve more in structural design. That’s a promise.

Because you’ve got the power. You have a key role in the construction industry.
