Durable, good-looking and energy efficient

Precast concrete solutions for the structure of apartment buildings. Preparation of an operational design, design of product drawings, manufacture, transport and assembly of elements, project management.

Sound and noise proof
Low noise level in living and working spaces is a sign of high quality environment and well-constructed building. Noise is transmitted as air vibrations, i.e., airborne noise, and as structural vibrations, i.e., structural noise. Due to concrete’s ability to absorb airborne noise, concrete houses have a significantly lower noise level than that of light-structure buildings.
It has been determined that an average reinforced concrete external wall element reduces noise level by 60 db and light walls only by 30 db. Reinforced concrete elements covered with a sound-absorbent layer of concrete are used as noise barriers along highways.
The transmission of impact noise in the form of constructional vibrations is inevitable in most materials and the means for preventing impact noise are expensive. Constructional vibrations abate faster in massive structures.

Energy efficient
During the whole life cycle of an apartment building, heating accounts up to 85% of its exploitation costs. Concrete’s high thermal capacity ensures a stable and comfortable internal climate. Since the building is well insulated and weatherproof, maintenance, heating and cooling costs are lower.
The energy efficiency of a building can be increased by using the THERMO-ACTIVE CEILING systems.

Durable (low maintenance)
All of our products are manufactured in modern plants by using the best materials. The products of E-Betoonelement are of high quality and durable.
Our three-layer façade elements consist of two layers of concrete with a layer of thermal insulation between them. The exterior façade surface is finished at the plant and does not require additional finishing at the construction site. The façade finishing made in the controlled environment of our plant is durable and requires very little maintenance.

Safety
Reinforced concrete is a fire resistant material. It can achieve two-hour fire rating and even higher, if necessary. In addition to protecting your and your neighbors' property in the case of fire, it also ensures you cheaper insurance premiums. Throughout the world, buildings with light structure have suffered more often from large fires.

Beautiful architecture
Precast concrete offers the developer and architect the widest selection of finishes to complete the building. Our products can exhibit natural concrete surfaces, different textures and embossments, a wide range of coatings, as well as colour options. You can create endless variations by mixing different  finishing options and displaying concrete next to glass, steel, plastic, wood and other materials.
Long spans of floor slabs enable to create original and user-friendly interior solutions.

Planning

When preparing an offer, we design a model, if necessary, which is based on an architectural design provided, preferably, by the architect in the ifc format. However, we can also use AutoCAD dwg files. Read more here.
The way around is also possible, we can give our structural model to the architect to use as a basis for their work. This approach has been used many times, for example, for our Baashall™ product.

In the quotation, we indicate the price for the structural part of the building together with the price of the installation and design service. The offered model includes the design of the load bearing part and the elements distribution (panel shapes and layouts) of the building. The model enables to estimate the volumes and weights of the elements.
Aat a bidding model, it can be seen the building´s carrier part structure and distribution of elements (panel statues and spreads). On the basis of a model, a summary can be made about the volumes and element weighs.

Project management

Once a client purchases a solution, we appoint an in-house project manager to coordinate the work. This means that the client only needs to communicate with a single representative of E-Betoonelement regarding all the works and services.

Designing

In the design we are focused on the all-in precast reinforced concrete solutions. As experts in the field, we can prepare the most optimal structural solution for the building at an early planning and design stage. For large-scale projects, we cooperate with our sister company CES.

Preparation of well-thought-out and correctly executed product drawings for elements based on the created solution for the use of factory workers is equally important. We use the 3D model (Tekla) and its advantages for designing.

Production

Most of our precast concrete elements are manufactured at our factories in Tamsalu and Harku. For large-scale projects, we cooperate with our sister companies within the Baltics .

If we design the precast concrete part of a building in-house it means we can transfer all the information necessary for the manufacture to the drawings in a timely manner and ensure that the elements are feasible and surface finishes, the location of steel parts in the element, as well as other details are well-thought-out based on the element specifications. We use materials that ensure functioning and compliant connections. We make sure that the elements are manufactured and delivered in accordance with the installation schedule.

Our products are manufactured in line with the applicable standards and regulations in Estonia. See the certificates issued to our factories..

Transport

If you order an all in-service solution, our installation team will organize the delivery of elements to the site. So, the clients do not need to tire themselves with scheduled ordering or the organization of unloading the elements at the site.

Assembly

By using our in-house installation team, we can be sure that the best assembly techniques are applied to achieve the desired result. In addition to correctly installed elements and safety at work site, skilful assembly also means that the deviations within the tolerances of the elements and the assembly are eliminated. The accumulation of permissible tolerances is avoided and the visual outlook of the final solution is always kept in mind.
