Plaana plans projects with Tekla’s solution for infrastructure designers

In 2010, the largest road improvement projects in Finland include the renewal of Ring I and the Turku highway in Leppävaara, Espoo, and the “Kallansillat” road project on highway 5. Plaana Oy is a Finnish community planning office responsible for the planning of, for example, the road and environmental structures of these construction contracts.

The consulting company Plaana Oy, established in 2001, and its engineering office subsidiary Insinööritoimisto Ponvia Oy employ approximately 40 people. The group’s line of business is road planning, transport planning, municipal engineering, project management as well as planning and development of bridges and water and port facilities. The customers of the group consist of contractors, municipalities and government agencies.

Plaana uses Tekla’s solution for infrastructure designers. At the core of the solution is Tekla Civil, which is a model-based information system for, for example, the planning of roads, streets and railroads as well as water and sewer networks.

“We chose the solution based on our previous positive operating experience,” says Project Manager Pekka Mosorin from Plaana. Tekla’s solution has been the planning system used in Plaana since the company was established.

Ring I is being upgraded as part of a larger Leppävaara planning and implementation project (STU2). A total of 26 bridges and approximately 8 kilometers of ramps are being built. Chief planner Kari Rautio from Plaana says that Tekla’s solution is the starting point for all planning. All construction contract plans, such as road and environmental plans, as well as plans for traffic management during construction are carried out in the solution.
