E-Betoonelement project manager Toomas Böttcher: "Our work for the Tallinn Music and Ballet School included the manufacture and delivery of elements. Since this building was already by design very demanding in terms of sounds and materials, the choice of concrete elements supported the realization of the primary idea to the maximum, because a concrete wall is proven to absorb noise up to twice as well as a light wall.
We made the concrete elements in the factory for both external and internal walls. Externally the surfaces were covered with aluminum composite plate with metal cassettes to give it a playful look. Internally, however, the building has plenty of exposed concrete surfaces.
It was a large project where we also collaborated with our sister companies from Consolis.
A significant part of our element deliveries fell into the winter period, which presented many challenges due to the large volumes of snow. It turned out to be quite difficult for the drivers to pick up the elements from the factory territories between the snowbanks and then to maneuver them in the narrow conditions of the city center and to make sure they arrived intact.
All in all, we can say that it was a very interesting and large-scale project. We want to thank our customer Merko Ehitus Eesti and praise the cooperation with 3+1 architects and T43 interior architects."
