Well, not yet, and not really far away.
As the team is growing fast, we need more space. Therefore, we are planning to move Skeleton's Tallinn office to the new and modern Alma-Tomingas building, whose foundation stone was laid today during a ceremony attended by Skeleton's team members, including our co-founder Oliver Ahlberg (in the photo). We will only move next year, since the building is expected to be completed by November 2022. Its architecture is inspired by the work of Alma Tomingas, who was Estonia’s first female professor.
The building will be located still in Ülemiste City but on Sepise 7, which is approximately 50 meters away from our current location (maybe even less).
Why are we going to move? Our Chief of Staff Nele Leht, explains: „We are excited to relocate to Alma Tominga building next year. This move represents another significant milestone for our fast-expanding company and will significantly contribute to executing our growth plans. Improvement in the energy efficiency of buildings results in reducing energy demand, saving of natural resources, and reduction in carbon emissions, therefore we are especially pleased to be able to move into a new office with the highest standards of efficiency as it is fully coherent with Skeleton's business activities and core values. More than anything, this move represents our continued commitment to providing the healthiest, and most creative work environment for our employees as no groundbreaking innovation can happen without well-being."
"It will be one of the most well-thought-out and talent-focused working environments in Estonia and perhaps even the whole of Europe", Ursel Velve, Chairman of the Management Board of Mainor Ülemiste AS, adds.
Indeed, the 11-storey green building being built near Tallinn Airport will meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold standard, solar panels will be installed and the heating and cooling system will allow saving 1500 trees worth of CO2 per year in the future.
"A building is emerging, one that we are creating in cooperation with the architects from the architectural firm PLUSS Architects from start to finish and from the inside out – based on the needs of our current and future talents. Awaiting them is a green environment, with the boundary between indoor and outdoor space being shifted by a large indoor atrium with balconies, a four-metre waterfall, and an interactive forest, where it will be nice to meet with colleagues or let your imagination soar alone in the tropical microclimate. The innovation and greenery being created is a step taken in the name of better employee health", describes Velve.
In addition to Skeleton, the future tenants of the Alma Tomingas building include brands with global reach and recognition, such as technology giant Fujitsu.
We are very excited to soon be able to have more space to host our fast-growing Tallinn team and guests. Please feel free to visit us, however, to discover the new Alma-Tomingas building, you will have to wait until November 2022.
