CABRO ™ silos can now carry heavy machinery of up to 30 tons

CABRO ™ silos can now carry heavy machinery of up to 30 tons

Aconsilo™ storage

The agricultural unit CABRO™ is building an Aconsilo™ silage storage facility at Vändra OÜ Sõõrikese farm in Pärnu County. This silo is larger and more spacious than ever, enabling to use heavy machinery of 30 tons to press the silage mass.

Kaido Kindel, CABRO™ project manager for agricultural and environmental products: The soon to be completed Aconsilo™ storage at Sõõrikese farm will allow us to store more crops and forage for animals than our previous silos. Our standard silos have the construction that allows to use the equipment of up to 20 tons to press the silage, but now we have considered our customer’s special wishes and needs and built a silo at Sõõrikese farm where machinery of up to 30 tons can be used to make silage. In addition, the completed silo will also have higher-than-usual retaining wall elements with the height of up to 4 meters.”

E-Betoonelement's customers have preferred Aconsilo™ silos for decades because they are reliable and easy to build. The CABRO™ team organizes the production of silos from the preparation of working drawings to the entire required construction work – meaning, it’s a complete package. In addition, the silos are built with high-quality concrete, thus withstanding acidic silage juice. The product has all the necessary silage juice collection system, and in the future, silos based on the elemental solution can be easily expanded, if necessary

Ilmus “Betooniraamat – Eesti  21. sajandi betoonehitis.“

“Concrete Book – Concrete Buildings in the 21st Century Estonia”

An overview book of the 21st century Estonian concrete construction, “Concrete Book – Concrete Buildings in the 21st Century Estonia”, has been published commissioned by the Estonian Concrete Association and the Association of Construction Material Producers of Estonia.

The book contains numerous interviews with Estonian architects, constructors, managers of construction and concrete companies, as well as overview articles on the history of Estonian concrete architecture (by Karin Paulus) and the history of the Concrete Building of the Year contest (by Eva Kiisler).

“When we think about our living environment, the contemporary country and society are unthinkable without concrete and artificial stone,” the chairman of the Estonian Concrete Imre Leetmasays in the book’s preface. “Everyone can ponder, browsing through this book, whether these winners reflect the environment around us on a broader scale. Are these buildings, or at least some of them becoming landmarks? Imprints in stone of their own time.”

The richly illustrated book with texts in Estonian, English, and Russian, gives an overview of the contemporary Estonian concrete architecture and construction on the basis of the winning works of the Concrete Building of the Year contest, the oldest construction contest in Estonia.

The publication was commissioned by the Estonian Concrete Association and the Association of Construction Material Producers of Estonia.

E-Betoonelement’s projects won awards at the Concrete Day

At Concrete Day taking place today, E-Betoonelement was awarded a special prize for the concrete elements used in the Toom-Kuninga apartment building. Another project also deserved a mention – special prize for builder for the joint academic and accommodation building of the Narva Study Centre of the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences and of the University of Tartu Narva College.

Special award: apartment building at Toom-Kuninga 15, Tallinn.

Concrete elements: E-Betoonelement OÜ.
Customer: Metro Capital OÜ

The jury’s comment: “For a bold and unique facade solution, where tastefully versatile concrete elements of the facade support the well-thought-out volumetric solution of the buildings.”

Chairman of the Jury Aadu Kana: “We recognize the responsible production of high-quality concrete elements with many imaginative variations. The extensive delivery of elements was carried out as a complex logistical operation, in cooperation with 8 factories from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.”

Special award: The joint study and accommodation building of the Narva Study Centre of the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences and the University of Tartu Narva College.

Constructor – Nordecon AS.

The jury’s comment: “For the construction of a functionally versatile and socially sensitive building, where concrete not only plays a supporting role but is also aesthetically and architecturally influential. The result is a robust and well-thought-out building that can establish itself in an existing urban environment. The importance of concrete is especially evident in load-bearing and technically demanding structures.”

Chairman of the Jury Aadu Kana: “High-quality concrete surfaces give the public spaces of the building a clear and uniform look and harmonize in style with the wooden constructions of the residential floors.”

The Estonian Concrete Building of the Year is Laaneotsa private house

The main prize, architecture – Joel Kopli (KUU Arhitektid).
Contractor award: private person
Constructor award: Mihkel Kannelmäe
Construction award: Mapri Ehitus OÜ
Concrete works award: Evocon Grupp OÜ
Concrete award: HC Betoon AS
Formworks award: Peri AS

The special award from the magazine Ehitaja was given to Sillamäe City Government as the contractor of the Sillamäe seafront promenade.
The special award from the Estonian Association of Civil Engineers was given to the designer of the Torn apartment building – Pikoprojekt OÜ.
