Residents of Tartu to choose the best construction works of the year

Tartu City Government Press Release

parim ehitis 2019

26 February / This year, residents of Tartu will once again be able to take part in the competition to select Tartu’s best construction work of the year, and to select their favourite house from among the new construction works and renovated buildings that received an authorisation for use in 2019.

Votes can be cast until 4 March, on the City of Tartu homepage (www.tartu.ee/ehitis2019). Voters can choose from among 14 buildings or building groups, which include new construction works as well as renovated buildings, private dwelling houses, apartment buildings and non-residential buildings.

The public’s favourite house, as well as the jury's acknowledgements in various categories, will be presented on 5 March 2020, in the City Hall Auditorium.

The Tartu City Government has been organising the best construction work competition since 1999. The competition will evaluate all of the buildings that were granted authorisations for use in the City of Tartu last year. The purpose of the competition is to value high quality design work and construction in the City of Tartu, which is born from good cooperation between the contracting entity, the designer and the builder.

In 2019, a total of 164 authorisations for use were issued to buildings in the City of Tartu, and 176 use and occupancy notices were submitted and registered.
