University of Tartu Narva College, residential building on Jõeoti St., Lilleküla passenger tunnel, LoodusInvest warehouse and Laagri RIMI shopping centre are the five objects that E-Betoonelement entered in the Concrete Building of the Year 2012 competition.

University of Tartu, Narva College
Architects: Siiri Vallner, Indrek Peil and Katrin Koov, Kavakava OÜ
Argument for the suggestion: Unique façade that imitates the baroque façade of a stock exchange building in negative that once stood in the same place.

Jõeoti St. residential building
Architects: Kiur Lootus, Kersti Lootus, Lootusprojekt OÜ
Argument for the suggestion: Precast concrete residential building whose construction and finishing expertly joins grey and white concrete and glass. Partially white concrete internal walls that are visible as mould surfaces seem refreshing and exclusive in the home environment.

Lilleküla passenger tunnel
Architect: Engineering Bureau KPME OÜ

Architects: Andres Orav, Eva Kala, Architec OÜ
Ettepaneku põhjendus: Tegemist on Baashall™ tüüpi hoonega, millel vastavalt tehnoloogilisele vajadusele on suur sisemine kõrgus, seetõttu on kasutatud ülikõrgeid soojustatud välisseinaelemente kõrgusega 10.3 meetrit. Hoone välisviimistlus - paekivipesubetoon – sobib suurepäraselt keskkonda, kus hoone asub, krundil otse parkmetsa kõrval.

E-Betoonelement has concluded the contract with MP Majad OÜ on the design, manufacturing and the assembly of elements for the production and warehouse building of a branch of Metaprint AS.

Site: Production and warehouse building of a branch of Metaprint AS
Address: Betooni 2, Pärnu
Architect: KAMP Arhitektid OÜ, Kaspar Kuuse
Customer: MP Majad OÜ
Contracting by AS E-Betoonelement: design, elements, transport and assembly
Project Manager: Priit Kärner

Metaprint AS is a significant customer for AS E-Betoonelement who has expanded at a rate of one production building, made of our elements, in a year since 2010. This production and warehouse building in Pärnu is equal to the capacity of two buildings built in Tallinn. The attractive facade and colour solutions of the architect, to be performed after the assembly of the building, are similar to previous ones. I hope for favourable autumn winds in Pärnu to ensure that we manage to complete the delivery and assembly of the elements in time. That might be a reason to continue this tradition with us in coming years“, commented Priit Kärner, the Manager of the Assembly Department.

The building of Metaprint AS is based on Basehall™ solution for which columns, beams and STT-slabs are delivered by E-Betoonelement. The three-layer wall elements, partition walls, hollow-core slabs and stairs are delivered for the office building of Basehall™. The contracting of E-Betoonelement will be completed in December of this year; the building will be completed finally in 2013.

The main activity of AS Metaprint is the production of aerosol packaging and its components. www.metaprint.com.

The segment tunnel solution for the Lilleküla pedestrian underpass has been used for the first time in Estonia and the Baltic states. The last element of the underpass was installed at midday yesterday. Two interruptions to rail traffic, made for the installation of the Lilleküla pedestrian underpass, lasted each less than 42 hours. The underpass ensures safe pedestrian traffic.

Lilleküla kergliiklustunnel asub Kristiine linnaosas Lilleküla raudteepeatuses ühendades Tehnika ja Kotkapoja tänavat. Tunneli kohal paiknevate nelja raudteeraja tõttu oli oluline tunneli paigaldustööd teostada võimalikult kiiresti, et minimaalselt häirida raudteeliiklust. Seetõttu jagati tunneli ehitus radade piirkonnas kaheks etapiks, millest kummagi etapi ehitustööd tuli nn nullist kuni rongiliikluse taastamiseni teostada 42 h jooksul. Tööd hõlmasid rajalõigu demontaaži, kaevetöid, tunnelikeha ehitust, drenaaži, kanalisatsiooni, elektritöid, tagasitäidet ja raudteelõigu taastamist. Tunnelikeha antud etappides rajati monteeritavast raudbetoonist st tehaseliselt valmistatud tunnelisegmentidest sisemõõtudega 3,5x2,5m. Segmendid olid sisuliselt lühikesed tunneli jupid, mis töömaal üksteise järel kokku pandi ja seejärel järelpingestati. I etapi tunneli elementosa sai valmis umbes 11 tunniga ja II etapp umbes 12 tunniga. E-Betoonelemendi töövõtu tellis SIA „RBSSKALS Büvsabiedriba“ Eesti filiaal.

„This solution is the first of its kind in Estonia and overall in the Baltics. The main advantages of the solution are the speed of construction and immediate bearing strength of the underpass that enables to diminish traffic obstructions or diversion. Manufacturing elements at the factory avoids dependence on weather conditions and ensures clean and safe site,“ commented Kairet Luiga, the Manager of Infrastructure Products.

In Estonia and in the Baltics, the segmental tunnel solution was first used for the construction of a light traffic tunnel in Lilleküla. The new solution allows for faster construction.

„This solution is the first of its kind in Estonia and overall in the Baltics. The main advantages of the solution are the speed of construction and immediate bearing strength of the underpass that enables to diminish traffic obstructions or diversion. Manufacturing elements at the factory avoids dependence on weather conditions and ensures clean and safe site,“ commented Kairet Luiga, the Manager of Infrastructure Products.

Due to the four railway tracks above the tunnel, it was important to carry out the installation of the tunnel as soon as possible in order to minimize rail traffic disturbance. Therefore, the construction of the tunnel in the area of the tracks was divided into two stages, of which the construction of both stages came from zero until train operation was restarted within 42 hours.

The tunnel body consists of segments that were essentially short tunnel jumps and were put together in an object one after the other and then tied up.

Lilleküla's light traffic tunnel is located in Kristiine district, at the Lilleküla railway stop, connecting Tehnika and Kotkapoja Street.

AS E-Betoonelement belongs to Consolis SAS, the largest producer of reinforced concrete in Europe, with over 100 factories in 25 countries. The company designs, manufactures and installs reinforced concrete elements. Estonia has been operating for 20 years and employs 250 people.
