What will be the best Estonian concrete building of 2022?

The aim of the contest is to raise the reputation of concrete as a domestic building material and to contribute to the development of concrete architecture, concrete technology and concrete construction.
“Despite the difficult times, Estonia is building eagerly – completed and on completion are many new schools, healthcare and cultural buildings, infrastructure objects, agricultural and industrial constructions, defence buildings and facilities, apartment, private and office buildings,“ said Imre Leetma, the Chairman of the Estonian Concrete Association. “The best of them are all expected to partake in the contest.”

The Grand Prix of the contest goes to the author of the winning idea. The contractor, engineer, constructor, formwork supplier, and concrete supplier will be recognized as well.
