Municipal and social buildings in IruHooldekodu tee 21 and 23, Iru, Tallinn

In spring 2006 Merko Ehitus finished construction works of a municipal building with altogether 224 flats (including 11 flats for disabled persons and 2 group flats) and 82 parking places. The construction period coincided with the peak of the tight labour market and deficiency in construction materials, strained by a tight time schedule. Very often there was even a shortage of suitable Fibo cinder blocks. Floor construction of the ground floor of the building can be outlined as a special solution. Dictynema or argillite separating radioactive gas – radon stratifies in the region of the ancient valley of the Pirita River. In order to prevent gas entering living rooms, there is a piping system built under the floor of the ground floor the task of which is to collect gas from under the floor and to direct it into the air via a chimney going to the roof. A special radon blocking film layer was installed under the floor that should block radon from spreading thought the floor structure and entering rooms.
