Cobalt has advised the Arvo Pert Centre in Estonia regarding construction procurement for a new building.
According to the Centre's website, "the Arvo Pert Centre was founded in 2010 by Arvo Pert and his family with the aim of creating opportunities for preserving and researching the creative heritage of the composer in his native land, Estonia, and in the context of the Estonian language. The centre is situated in Laulasmaa, 35 kilometers from Tallinn, on a peninsula with magnificent natural surroundings – within a pine forest near the sea. The building for the centre has been named Aliina – a name that symbolizes new beginnings in Part’s music. It was with the piano piece Fur Alina that the tintinnabuli style was introduced in 1976."
The Arvo Part Centre has signed an agreement with Ehitustrust AS, which, according to Cobalt, "submitted the most favorable tender to the public procurement for the construction of the new building." The construction of the building designed by Spanish architects Nieto Sobejano will cost EUR 6.69 million. The Arvo Part Centre will open its doors in autumn 2018.
The Cobalt team was led by Partner Aivar Taro, assisted by lawyer Kadri Kasepalu.
