Construction is going quickly on the buildings scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
Excavation is already complete, so right now we’re working on the communication infrastructure. The foundations for Juhan’s House and Elsa’s House will be laid in the next few days, with more to come after that.
During excavation, we were pleased to note the soil surveys showed one of the best kinds of base soils for construction: hard sandstone. This has confirmed our belief that these houses are made to last, and will be a part of Kalamaja for a long time to come.
We’ve completed the brickwork for the parking floor and the ground floor of Karl’s, Asta’s and Artur’s Houses, and have also installed the hollow-core floor slabs for the ground floor.
Work is progressing at a good pace, and we’re even a few weeks ahead of schedule, thanks to the weather conditions.
The land gave us a surprise today: a granite stone of 2.5 m diameter, which could only be moved with the use of several excavators. In keeping with our plan to take our cues from the natural environment, we’re thinking of ways the stone could be used as a landscaping design element after the completion of the project.
