Project: Kindrali Majad / Kindrali Houses Address: Sammu Str. 5/Talli Str. 4; Sõjakooli Str. 14 and 16; Rivi Str. 6/Talli Str. 2, Tallinn. Client: Oma Ehitaja OÜ Architect: Allianss Arhitektid Product nomenclature: hollow core slabs, interior and exterior wall elements, stairs and balconies. Sales Engineer of E-Betoonelement: Neeme Kasela Project Manager of E-Betoonelement: Toomas Böttcher
The project manager of E-Betoonelement Toomas Böttcher: the developer of Kindrali Houses is OÜ Marsi Elu, a company belonging to Pro Kapital Grupp who signed a contract with Oma Ehitaja at the beginning of this year for the construction of three apartment buildings in a residential complex. E-Betoonelement in cooperation with Oma Ehitaja has already completed two apartment buildings in Kristiine City in Tondi area, and deliveries for the third residential building have started. The three apartment buildings are not alike - for the apartment building at Sammu Street, we supplied exterior wall elements with a black exposed concrete surface, whereas the exterior wall elements with molded surfaces for the apartment building at Sõjakooli Street were painted white at the factory. The exterior wall elements of the last or Rivi Street apartment building are made in red tones due to the red pigment used, and with structural top layer due to wood floating finish. Just like for the first two building, E-Betoonelement will also deliver for the last 5-storey apartment building hollow core panels, interior and exterior wall elements, stairs and balconies.”
Allianss Arhitektid Indrek Tiigi: "When planning the Kindrali Houses, I wanted to create a city in the middle of the city. I divided the land into human-scale quarters with boulevards between them. All buildings are clearly located on the street line and the doors open directly onto the street. The area between the buildings is designed into peaceful urban indoor parks, where the pace of movement is slow and you can relax and play between the trees and bushes. The exterior finishes of the buildings are dominated by concrete - dignified black, rustic mass-painted red and white smooth concrete. The spacious balconies and terraces are lined with cosy wood, making the Kindrali Houses a pleasant place to live."
The black and white apartment buildings of Kindrali Houses will be completed in the summer of 2022, the third or the last building will be completed thereafter.
E-Betoonelement and Kaamos Ehitus have signed a cooperation agreement for the production and supply of concrete elements for Bulvari Kodud at Sõpruse pst 30.
Project: Bulvari Kodud Address: Sõpruse pst 30, Tallinn Customer: Kaamos Ehitus OÜ Product nomenclature: hollow core slabs, boards, poles, beams, stairs, interior wall elements Sales Engineer at E-Betoonelement: Martin-Sven Käärid E-Betoonelement project manager: Tõnu Ernits
The project manager of E-Betoonelement Tõnu Ernits: "The Bulvari Kodud apartement building at Sõpruse pst will be built with reinforced concrete elements - hollow panels, slab elements, poles, beams, staircase elements and sound-absorbing interior wall elements – produced by E-Betoonelement. We signed a cooperation agreement for the supply of the elements of Bulvari Kodud with our long-term and very good cooperation partner Kaamos Ehitus, with whom we have previously built apartment buildings, commercial buildings, as well as parking garages. E-Betoonelement will start delivering the elements in December and finish at the beginning of next year."
Estonian "bulvar" comes from the French word boulevard, it refers to a wide boulevard by the banks of a river or sea, it often also denotes a circular street. Bulvari Kodud is located on the wide Sõpruse Boulevard, which is not directly by the sea, but is just as charming with its parks and greenery. The proximity to the city center and having all important services available close to home, such as schools, shops and shopping centers, make the location of the apartment building especially attractive
Bulvari Kodud apartment building will be completed by the end of 2022.
