Project manager of E-Betoonelement Toomas Böttcher: „Nordeconiga koostöös on Kristiine City’sse valminud juba seitse elementelamut. 2014.-2016. aastal valmisid esimesed kolm korterelamut Marsi tänavale, mis olid Aasta betoonehitise nominendiks oma uudse kommunikatsioonišahtide lahenduskontseptsiooni poolest.
Alates 2016. aastast kuni tänaseni on Sõjakooli tänavale püstitatud neli elementelamut, millest viimane on hetkel lõpetamisel. Lisaks oleme sõlminud nendega koostöölepingu veel kolmele elementmajale Sammu tänaval, mis valmivad 2019. aastal.
Grey relief concrete with imitation joints has been used in the finish of all buildings, which provides beautiful and original appearance to the buildings.
Meie koostöö Nordeconiga on kestnud pikalt ja see on olnud rõõmustavalt tulemuslik. Tunneme teineteise tööstiili ja teame ootusi ning omavaheline kommunikatsioon on ladus. Projektides tuleb ikka ootamatusi ette, aga mõlemapoolse panuse, hea kommunikatsiooni ja hoolivusega oleme saavutanud alati sobiva lahenduse.“
