Airport City management board chair Teet Raudsep said: “This is a notable milestone in the broader plans for Airport City, as the cargo terminal is the first project we’ll be working on as part of the diverse, long-term development of the business park.”
Airport City, Tallinn’s closest business park, aims to create a business hub for companies in the aviation industry that benefit from proximity to the airport and its runway.
The location of the business park near Tallinn Airport is anticipated to foster synergy between the aviation sector and various business fields.
Maru Ehitus management board chair Margo Dengo said: “Our mission is to build the sort of tomorrow we ourselves want to live in. For us, that’s based in innovation and sustainability.
“It’s an honour for us to partner with Airport City in constructing this innovative cargo terminal, since they’re prepared to go the extra mile to achieve sustainability, having set their sights on a LEED [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] Silver certificate for the building.”
