MULTITASKER IN THE EXPERT TASKS OF THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR SINCE 1983

”PBM has had time to grow to a glorious age of almost 40 years. The whole name of our company, Pohjois-Suomen Betoni- ja Maalaboratorio (Concrete & Soil Testing Laboratory of Northern Finland), remains a descriptive reference of where we first started. Over the years, we have become better acquainted with the abbreviation PBM and our operations have extensively expanded from concrete and soil investigations to cover various areas of construction. 


We have grown as a company and in our operations by listening to our customers and I could say that our customers have shaped us into what we are today. I am particularly grateful to all of our customers for it and the abbreviation PBM tells, now and in the future, of our company's comprehensive expertise regarding construction.”

OUR STORY SO FAR

PBM began its operations in 1983 by first performing ground investigations of the soil in the Lapland region. However, operations developed fast and a year later an advanced compression testing machine was acquired by the company. At the time, there were only two machines of this same level in Finland.

Ground investigations and field measurements were, at first, primarily made with traditional tools, such as hand augers, measuring tapes, ranging rods, prismatic squares and leveling instruments. Tools and the extent of operations developed gradually, and soon professionals from different construction sectors could comprehensively be found from our company due to the testing and innovations in the laboratory, and due to the various investigation needs of customers. The company expanded to offer its services to regional planning and structural engineering, contamination investigation of soil, asbestos mappings and indoor air investigations.

Comprehensive multitasker

Over the decades of our operations, we have transformed from a concrete, structural engineering and geotechnics expert organization into our current form, which is a cross-sectoral and comprehensive professional in the expert tasks of the construction sector.
