Pekka Pulkkinen

Business Area Director, Bridges
Pekka Pulkkinen

I began at WSP 30 years ago. I wanted to become a structural designer and was invited to the team of bridge design engineers. I have been involved in design tasks both as an engineer and a project manager. Several cable-stayed bridges that also received international awards have been the most significant projects during my career.  I have worked in several international projects that provided me with great friends and colleagues. Nowadays, I am a Business Area Director, responsible for bridges. I also teach bridge engineering in a University of Applied Sciences. At work, I want to encourage and motivate young professionals towards innovative and brave design solutions. In 2012, the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers, RIL, awarded me with the title of construction engineer of the year.
