Focus on safety: avoid accidents at workplace

Focus on safety: avoid accidents at workplace

This week, E-Betoonelement organizes its annual Safety Week that focuses on ensuring safety in factories, offices and home offices. The companies in the Consolis Group, including E-Betoonelement, all strive for accident-free workplace environment. The numbers have improved year to year, but there is still a lot to be done to prevent accidents and achieve a workplace where no accidents occure.

The Safety Week will focus on five different topics, all of which will be covered in more detail: accident-free work environment, line of fire, escape routes, tools, and the prevention of the spread of Covid-19. These topics are covered in theory, but practical examples are given of what accidents have occured and how to avoid them. It is important to note that each employee is responsible for their own safe behavior and is certainly expected to intervene when they see others behave in a non-safe way.

Plant Manager at Harku, Hans Süld: "We have to move towards an accident-free work culture on a daily basis - getting there is not merely a dream, it is possible. Risk behavior must be addressed systematically - you must react when ever you see it, always. The goal is to reach the next level, where an employee is motivated to behave safely towards himself and others without external pressure (orders).”

Tamsalu Factory Manager, Marek Prees: "Without exception, all accidents can be prevented if you behave correctly - this is as simple as that. To behave correctly you have to be aware of the right work methods and, of course, the right tools and personal protective equipment. In this regard, we need to educate our employees every day. It is the responsibility of managers to provide this knowledge to the people, and often we have to take on a role of "an educator". What I would like to remind everyone during the occupational safety week - when you see that something is being done wrong, don't walk away. Don't be afraid of being more caring."

Due to the high rate of the COVID-19 cases in Estonia, the safety week events this year are carried out mostly online, i.e. all workshops take place via screens. Personalized workshops in the factories have been postponed and will later take place in the same work groups that are in daily contact anyway to prevent the possible spread of the coronavirus.

Stage I of Kalaranna Quarter has been assembled and Stage II is halfway through

Stage I of Kalaranna Quarter has been assembled and Stage II is halfway through

E-Betoonelement OÜ and Nordecon AS have, in cooperation, completed Stage I of the beautiful Kalaranna Quarter and Stage II is already halfway through with two buildings assembled and the last two residential buildings started.

Project: Kalaranna Quarter, Kalaranna Street, Tallinn (I-II construction phases)
Customer: Nordecon AS
Developer: AS Pro Kapital Grupp
Architect: Mihkel Tüür and Ott Kadarik, Kadarik Tüür Arhitektid OÜ
Contracting: Supply of precast elements
E-Betoonelement project manager: Toomas Böttcher

Toomas Böttcher, project manager at E-Betoonelement: „Hoonete välisviimistlus jääb kaunilt omapärane ja stiililt eristuv, sest elementide tootmisel kasutatakse spetsiaalset Rekli pinnaviimistlusmeetodit reljeefse betoonpinna saavutamiseks, mis omakorda aksendi andmiseks sügavmusta värviga kaetakse.”

Betoonpind must rekli

Exterior wall of the building - gray concrete next to painted black Reckli surface.

In addition to the above, several different finishes are used for the façade, such as natural stone, wood, aluminum composite board and brick. 

"The plants of E-Betoonelement in Harkus and Tamsalu, work closely together to ensure that all the elements can be delivered to the site on time and with the highest quality. Some of the elements come from our Consolis subsidiaries in Latvia. Specially shaped balconies to contribute to the facades of prefabricated houses come from the Tamsalu plant, ” says Toomas Böttcher .

The developer of the Kalaranna area is AS Pro Kapital Grupp, an experienced real estate development company in the Baltics. E-Betoonelement has previously developed several projects with Pro Kapital, including, for example, the entertainment and shopping center T1.

The precast element houses to be built in the Kalaranna Quarter are adjacent to Linnahall and Kalaranna parks and are planned to have four to five storeys. A one-storey 20,000 square meter underground car park with almost 450 parking spaces will be built on the property. An elevator is planned into each building. Commercial premises are planned on the ground floors of the buildings, which can be accessed from the street. In addition to the commercial premises, there are entrances on the ground floors to the stairwells and storage rooms of apartment buildings, where residents can store prams or bicycles.

E-Betoonelement will complete the deliveries by the beginning of April.

The Tallinn School of Music and Ballet will be completed despite freezing weather conditions

The Tallinn School of Music and Ballet will be completed despite freezing weather conditions

Despite the loads of snow and freezing temperatures this winter in Estonia, E-Betoonelement has already completed half of the deliveries to the site of the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet . There is more on-site work compared to warm weather, and limited movement conditions and any special measured due to cold weather need to be considered when installing the elements.

Project: Tallinn School of Music and Ballet
Customer: Merko Ehitus Eesti AS
Contracting: Supply of precast elements
Project management Toomas Böttcher
Delivery: August 2020 - May 2021

Toomas Böttcher, project manager at E-Betoonelement"The work on the site of the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet is carried out in two shifts, because this year's cold and snowy winter has challenged us. In case of snow fall and freezing temperatures, the elements that have arrived at the site need to be cleaned and this will take some time.

In this project, the elements come, in addition to the Harku plant, from our other Consolis subsidiaries' plants - this allows us to optimize deliveries and ensure that the elements arrive at the site on time.

E-Betoonelement does not compromise on the quality of the products, because most of the interior walls of the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet remain as exposed concrete surface and subsequent colour corrections or other changes of the elements are not possible. We pay a lot of attention to the production of elements in the plants in order to ensure their esthetic and even appearance in the finished building."

The architectural idea of the design is to create a special enchanted place in an urban space, by arranging the buildings at the borders of the plot, so that a unique and unexpected open space is created in the middle.

E-Betoonelement will complete all its deliveries by the beginning of summer.
