AS E-Betoonelement and construction company Astlanda Ehitus have entered into a cooperation agreement for the preparation of the operational building design documentation of a courthouse and for the design, manufacture and delivery of elements therefor.
A new courthouse, the facades of which are architecturally designed as calm, angular elements that protrude in relation to one another both horizontally and vertically, is to be built on the periphery of Tallinn city centre. The building is multifaceted, but has a simple and harsh geometry to it. E-Betoonelement is manufacturing triple-layered insulated reinforced concrete panels, structural elements and hollow core panels treated with whitish grey titanium oxide for the building facade.
The new building will house three state authorities: Harju County Court, Northern District Prosecutor's Office and the Centre of Registers and Information Systems (RIK). All agencies will be housed in different parts of the building, while architecturally forming a single unit without aiming for visual distinction between them.
Authors of the building are Andres Siim and Kristel Ausing from Arhitektuuristuudio Siim & Kreis. Their idea solution Matrix was awarded the first prize among thirteen candidates. The head designer of the building is Novarc Group AS.
Deliveries of E-Betoonelement will take place from March next year until the end of September. The building is to be fully completed in the spring of 2018.
