We are building a logistics centre for Tallinna Kaubamaja Grupp
We have concluded a construction contract with TKM Kinnisvara of the Tallinna Kaubamaja Group to build a logistics centre in Maardu. The centre will be located at Paemurru 1 and will handle the cargo volumes of the Tallinna Kaubamaja Group companies.
The total area of the centre will be 17,200 square metres and it is planned to be completed in autumn 2024. The centre will be a modern building with an energy class of A and built in accordance with the requirements of the BREEAM certificate. The infrastructure necessary for operating and providing support services to the centre will be established around the building.
“The establishment of the logistics centre will add new business opportunities for the Tallinna Kaubamaja Group companies and will significantly increase the efficiency of work processes. This is a big step for the future development of the whole Group: the establishment of a modern centre will create better opportunities to make the supply chains of our companies more efficient and, in turn, offer our customers an even better shopping experience,” said Raul Puusepp, Chairman of the Management Board of Tallinna Kaubamaja Grupp. “Over 48 million purchases are made in Tallinna Kaubamaja Group every year, with the majority of them from the 74 stores of Selver. We have grown significantly over the years, so setting up our own logistics centre is the next logical step to take,” Puusepp added.
“The chosen location is well connected to major transport hubs, and the nearly 5-hectare plot will also allow for the future expansion of the building,” said Peeter Kütt, Chairman of the Management Board of TKM Kinnisvara. According to Kütt, a solar park will be built on the roof of the logistics centre, which will cover a significant portion of the building’s electricity consumption. “All of these choices result in a modern and sustainable building and modern working conditions for the employees,” Kütt added.
According to Marek Hergauk, Director of the General Construction Division of Merko Ehitus Eesti, the contract concluded marks the start of the construction of the most modern logistics centre in Estonia. “We will do our best to ensure we will complete a high-quality and sustainable complex through solid consultation with the client. When completed, the centre will simplify the daily work and processes of the client and, thanks to the energy efficiency of the building, also help them to manage their costs,” said Hergauk.
