ESPLAN helps to do our part stabilize the economy in crisis

2020.03.15 / Kadi Metsmaa, CEO

Architecture and engineering can be done also during the crisis. We have developed processes that can work without the interruption also during isolation. ESPLAN continues our work and completes its projects. All the restrictions and guidelines given by the government are strictly followed, we are able to work remotely and also in our office where the ventilation is same as in ICU.

We are able to complete a project from the beginning til the end, all the engineers are working in the company, so we are able to control the deadlines and take responsibility. Being strong we will be there also after the crisis, supporting you during the construction phase and after that.

We all need to look to the future and all the future investments that would support world economy start with architecture and engineering. By keeping on the planning work and consultancy, you are able to start construction tenders as soon as the market stabilises.

Choosing your consultant is utmost important to guarantee deadlines and quality. Together we are able to pass the insecure and unstable situation faster.

All our meetings have moved to virtual environments, none of them is cancelled and we are able to engage all the parties, wherever they are. Our efforts are directed to help to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to design environments that are secure for the future end users.

Light Stream Ülemiste terminal – WINNER


It is an honour to be the winner of the Rail Baltic Architecture Competition for Ülemiste Terminal!

Esplan is extremely pleased to work with such renowned architectural firm as Zaha Hadid Architects.

Zaha Hadid Architects have created major transportation hubs around the world. From small stations in the mountain ranges to the international airports.

Ülemiste area is in the rapid development. The cross-border infrastructure project Rail Baltic will bring about a major change. Ülemiste City area is becoming one of the most attractive and synergic parts in whole Tallinn in terms of infrastructure.

Soon to be built Rail Baltic and Tallinn Airport will be closely linked. The pedestrian urban park will be connecting the two comfortable.

Zaha Hadid Architectural Terminal Concept

The goal of Light Stream is to create a dynamic and vibrant transport hub. Interesting physical architectural connection between pedestrians and public transport create a strong design identity. The aim of the project is to design the terminal as a new emblem for the city of Tallinn. It is especially important as the Ülemiste station will be the first station at the beginning of Rail Baltic.

Ülemiste transport hub will start connecting trains, busses and trams, serving regional, national and international travellers. We believe that the terminal will become a lively heart of the city, connecting the Airport, downtown, Ülemiste City, surrounding shopping centres and public space.

There will be a lot of natural daylight during the day and exciting light solutions in the evening, which will become an important point of reference for travellers. The proposed multi-layered architectural language helps to make the flow of people smooth.

Traveling through Ülemiste terminal will be a special experience for every passenger.

Revit Dynamo MagiCAD

Revit & Parametric design with Dynamo for MagiCAD


We are happily contributing to the development of parametric design and creating new cool tools for engineers. Estonian Digital Construction Cluster has assigned us for creating the correct scripts. Our BIM Manager Dmitri Garbuzenko has proudly presented set of scripts. Correct pipe insulation management in Revit was always time consuming and “painful” workflow (even with MagiCad). Thanks to Dynamo we can now add desired insulation to whole system with only three mouse clicks!
