Rautaruukki’s first total delivery in Estonia successfully completed

Rautaruukki’s first total delivery in Estonia has been handed over to the customer, Joestoni Investeeringu AS. The warehouse and commercial premises serving as DHL’s logistics centre in Tallinn, Estonia is as big as a large football field.

Ruukki was responsible for the design and manufacture of the wall, roof and frame structures, as well as for installation and other work to ensure implementation of the main contract. The project started in July 2007.

As an experienced provider of steel structure solutions, Ruukki is able to deliver compatible separate parts for construction projects. This makes scheduling and budgeting easier to manage.

“Ruukki’s total solution served our needs extremely well and also lowered costs. We are pleased with Ruukki’s delivery,” says Lasse Jokinen, owner of Joestoni Investeeringu AS, which is part of Jokinen Yhtiö.

“Cooperation with Ruukki worked very well and was flexible,” says Riho Oras, representative of Joestoni Investeeringu AS, building inspector and project supervisor.

Ruukki designed, delivered and installed the sandwich wall panels (4,500 m2), load-bearing profiles (7,200 m2) and steel frames (190 tonnes).
