High quality follows good ideas
Merko’s versatile and experienced specialists will find the perfect solution in every situation.
Keeping our promises, quality and flexibility are the values we care about.
Construction and a wide range of additional services
We build business and office complexes, shopping and entertainment centres, hotels and spas, production and industrial buildings, apartment buildings, schools, hospitals, museums and other public buildings. We have erected new high-rises on narrow sites in the heart of the city, built large production and industrial parks in regional and urban centres, and reconstructed old and dignified heritage sites.
We offer strategic consulting and complete solutions to meet the customer's needs, from the preparation and design of the development project, the analysis of technical solutions and structural calculations to interior design and warranty services for completed buildings.
How do we build
at such great heights?
The Maakri business quarter was built in extremely complex conditions in the heart of the city. It connects seven buildings, four of which are architectural monuments from the early 20th century and three new buildings. The erection of a 30-storey building is something you don’t see every day.
General construction works
Civil engineering and infrastructural works
We design and build public utilities (drinking water purification and waste water treatment plants, pumping stations, public water supply and sewerage pipelines, vacuum sewerage systems), roadworks (roads, bridges, tunnels, viaducts, railways, squares), harbour projects (quays, breakwaters), residual pollution control and other engineering and technical works. Our construction teams build pipelines using the excavation method and directional drilling technology.
Subsidiary of Merko Ehitus AS, Tallinna Teede AS, offers all road maintenance works, the company has an asphalt factory and a certified laboratory for testing roads and road construction materials.
The rocket science of
Building a tram tunnel under a running train is no joke. It requires exceptionally thorough planning, fine-tuned execution and good partners. A kilometre of new tram track is not only an opportunity to travel to the airport, but a connection to all flight destinations in the world.
Civil engineering works
Construction and assembly of reinforced concrete structures
We build cast-in-place and prefabricated concrete structures for general construction and civil engineering projects. With our experienced skilled workers, we build concrete floors, intermediate ceilings and other monolithic reinforced concrete structures and assemble reinforced concrete elements.
We have erected concrete structures for high-rise buildings in the city centre, large hotels and offices, large-scale sports facilities, parking garages and beautifully designed apartment buildings. Our specialists have completed important traffic junctions, viaducts and tunnels, and we have built the foundations for power plants and wind farms.
In 2009, the Tallink office building with its white concrete crosses rising around its facade was declared the concrete building of the year.
In 2019, a camera was installed on the roof of the previously awarded building to capture the rise of Tallink’s new office building.
Quarrying of construction minerals and sale of aggregates
We quarry construction resources to produce aggregates suitable for use in the production of concrete and asphalt mixtures, and the construction of buildings, structures and roads. Our output has been certified by Teede Tehnokeskus and we work under the business name Merko Kaevandused.
We sell aggregates from the Soodla II and Poolvahe II sand quarries in Anija municipality, Harjumaa county and at the Orava limestone quarry in Rapla County. We also develop new quarries in strategic regions across Estonia.
In November 2021, the extraction of construction mineral resources and the production of filler materials from these resources commenced at Merko’s newest quarry – Orava limestone quarry in Rapla County. It is estimated that the quarry has enough material for extraction for the next twenty years.

Construction of electricity networks, production and consumer installations
On 1 July 2021, we acquired a stake in Connecto Eesti, and the current Merko electrical construction business line – together with experienced electrical builders, designers and setters – merged with Connecto.
Acting jointly under the Connecto brand makes it possible for us to offer a significantly broader range of services – in addition to the design, construction and maintenance of low, medium and high voltage electricity networks, Connecto also operates in the field of telecommunications and gas networks.

We have organised the transport of cargo weighing 230 tonnes, transporting a substation transformer; we have laid a 20 cm cable on the sea bed – all for the sake of higher quality electricity supply so that the people of Estonia can have the lights on at all times.
