GTK’s land use and construction segment supports public and private-sector decisions related to land use by providing user-focused materials and expert services, promoting land use solutions that consider economic and environmental factors in construction of urban growth centres, and supporting implementation of the Baltic Sea Strategy and the EU Marine Strategy Directive.
We conduct environmental surveys to support town planning, construction, assessment of environmental impacts and decision-making. The environmental baseline studies and risk assessment need to be supported by data on soil and groundwater properties. Our extensive information database and vast expertise in geology and geochemistry are key factors in research related to soil and groundwater protection and in research on the state and changes to the environment.
