Cobalt has advised the Estonian Transport Administration on the procurement procedure for the design and construction of the Sindi-Lodja Bridge on the Reiu River.

According to Cobalt, “for the first time in Estonia, the work is carried out based on the alliance procurement model.”

"Such a procurement method has been successfully implemented in Finland, and its advantages are much more active cooperation between the parties and the development of the best and sustainable solutions through cooperation," Transport Administration Head of the Eastern Region Anti Palmi explained. According to him, the aim of the Transport Administration is to contribute to the implementation of more value-based and cooperation-based construction procurement, which is being piloted with this project.

According to Cobalt, “in the first stage, the project team formed as a result of the procurement plans to design the bridge and the accompanying traffic environment. This is followed by the implementation stage, during which the necessary construction works are carried out. Public procurement paperwork is available in the Public Procurement Register.”

Cobalt’s team included Specialist Counsel Kadri Matteus and Associate Marit Piirisaar.
