Bravo Catalan

I was priviliged to make a brief visit to Barcelona, Spain and was positively impressed about many things. Life is not always how it is described in newspapers. Here are some findings: 1) Shopping malls did not have empty spaces - occupacy-rate was close to 100% in all main shopping malls, 2) It was difficult to book hotel room - occupacy-rate of hotels was very high, 3) I did not see many construction sites, however, the ones I saw, were working, and 4) Building specialists that I talked with were optimistic - companies were mentally well adjusted to low volumes, low prices and higher requirements - and were surviving. Development was on-going again.

I am also proud to announce that Peikko´s Deltabeam product won another construction award, this time at Construmat exhibition in Barcelona last week, via Peikko´s partner in Spain, Hormipresa. See more at - the site works both Spanish and Catalian so it will be easy for most of you....

Because of this great award my favorite for the soccer Champions League finals 28.5. at Wembley stadium is clear. I confess, because of this award I am bribed to be the fan of FC Barcelona - deep apologies for all Manchester United fans already :-)
