TALLINN – The Tallinn city property department has announced a tender for the design of a children's shelter at 3 Rivi Street in order to cover the shortage of shelter places.

The procurement involves fully applying for the design conditions of the Tallinn Center for Child Security, preparing a project for the new building in the scope of a sketch, preliminary and working project, applying for a building permit, advising during construction and furnishing procurements and carrying out designer oversight during the construction works, it appears from the procurement documents.

As the number of children in the current Lillekula shelter at 1 Mooni Street has been reduced at the request of the Health Board, a situation has arisen where the shelter does not cover the necessary number of places in Tallinn. The new building on Rivi street would allow creating the necessary 6 to 10 additional places.

The plan is to build a building complex with two aboveground floors on the 3 Rivi Street property. The building must have at least two separate entrances and a shelter for a car. The project also includes a comprehensive landscaping project, the aim of which is to avoid areas that need frequent mowing, with meadows as replacement, while thuja trees should also be avoided in the landscaping.

The expected duration of the procurement is 29 months, bids can be submitted until Jan. 27, 2023.
