Construction begins on joint “Superministry” building in Tallinn ({{commentsTotal}})


Construction has officially begun on a new building in Central Tallinn that will jointly house four of Estonia’s eleven government ministries. The new building is scheduled to be completed by summer 2017.

The new “superministry” building, which is replacing the old Ministry of Finance building on Suur-Ameerika Street, is the future home of the Ministries of Finance, Social Affairs, Justice, and Economic Affairs and Communications, reported ERR’s television news.

State realty firm Riigi Kinnisvara AS signed a contract with private limited company 2Torni OÜ in November 2014 for the construction of a more modern, energy-efficient and optimally planned office building for the state institutions.

The new joint building will allow for the state, in collaboration with the private and public sectors, to save a total of nearly €7 million over ten years. Overall energy consumption should also be reduced by nearly 70 percent.
