Buildings have various functions, ranging from homes to offices and services. They create the framework for safe and healthy everyday living. The starting point of a construction project is the need for new space or the need to develop or repair existing buildings. Appropriate upkeep and maintenance are essential for the lifecycles of buildings, constructions and other structures. The aim of the careful designing and steering of construction is to keep the quality of the end results high and to reduce the related environmental hazards.
This section contains information on the different stages of construction projects, property maintenance and renovations. Information on building engineering, waste water treatment and ecological and energy efficiency can also be found in the section. The information is especially intended for citizens, operators and authorities. Information on legislation can be found on the webpages of the Ministry of the Environment.
