Working for the future

Our work has developed the urban space, given opportunities for exercise and made life in Estonia more comfortable. With each project, we build tomorrow and lay the foundation for the future.

We help to make engineering and construction education more practical, give lectures and supervise graduation theses, organise group visits to projects and offer internships so that today’s builders will be succeeded by a remarkable young generation.

Every day you live and work healthy is important. We increase employee awareness of occupational health, ensure a safe working environment and contribute to maintaining good health.

To promote healthy lifestyles, we encourage our employees to play sports, reimburse sports and health expenses and, in cooperation with Swedbank and Eesti Energia, develop health trails across Estonia so that others can exercise comfortably and healthily.
