Apartment building at Rävala 19Rävala pst 19, Tallinn

It was the largest apartment building that Merko Ehitus had built so far. This time, the construction started with demolition, as the half-finished framework next to the Academy of Music had to be taken down first. One of the most exiting stages in the construction process was the dig-ging of a hollow and climbing out of it with the new building. The entire hollow was surrounded with the elements of 13-metre sheeting and it was timbered across the hole with steel poles with the diameter of 800 mm. The hollow was the deepest alongside Tatari Street, its depth reached 8 metres. Outdoor works included the insulation of the building, frontal plastering and tiling, mounting of curb-stones and pavement stones, paving with as-phalt, mounting of fences, landscaping and the installation of street lights.
