Nursing home Skärvet, Växjö, Southern Sweden
Architect: Kjellander and Sjöberg Architects
Developer: Strängbetong AB
Builder: Strängbetong AB

Apartment buildings Pikk tn 43, 45, 47, Tartu
Customer: Avaare Kinnisvara OÜ
Architect: Kauss Arhitektuur OÜ
Developer: Tari AS
Builder, main contractor and performer of concrete work: Ehitustrust AS, E-Betoonelement AS
Supplier of concrete products: AS E-Betoonelement, Strängbetong AB

Justification for the proposal:
Apartment buildings are built using prefabricated reinforced concrete panels, and the concept of buildings is based on functionality, suitability in the environment and energy efficiency.
The facade of buildings on Pikk Street is eye-catching – it uses stripes of two different width and closeness, painted dark.
The buildings are insulated using PIR insulation, which hasn’t been used a lot in Estonian projects. It is a material will very low thermal conductivity that significantly reduces the heating need of buildings in the winter.

Mustamäe Health Centre – Ehitajate tee 27, Tallinn
Customer: West Tallinn Central Hospital
Architect: Visuaal OÜ
Developer: SWECO Projekt AS
Builder, main contractor and performer of concrete work: Ehitusfirma Rand & Tuulberg AS, E-Betoonelement AS
Supplier of concrete products: AS E-Betoonelement

Justification for the proposal: A building with a very interesting architectural and functional design with a circular atrium passing through all the floors in the centre of the building. The building expertly combines glass and concrete with the front facade made of glass and smoothly transitioning into concrete. The curved facade of the building is intended for the sake of appearance, but it also offers functionality, helping to save space and plan offices better. The building places great emphasis on energy efficiency, which is assisted by the energy storage capacity of concrete elements. Mustamäe District has gained an energy efficient building that serves the interests of the population and easily blends into the environment.
