In Estonia, the main focus has been on the road projects and therefore most of the transport related projects have been about road infrastructure.

Services we offer for our clients:

  • Road Designs Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
    Environmental impact assessment is carried out for all the bigger road designs, in case there is a chance for significant environmental impacts. Hendrikson & Ko has compiled the most road design EIAs according to 2010 report by The Road Administration.

  • Preliminary environmental assessment for road designs
    According to Environmental Impact Assessment and Environmental Management System Act, it is obligatory for the deciding party to give a preliminary assessment about the necessity of EIA. Theses preliminary assessments are often ordered from the contractor. Hendrikson & Ko offers advice about potentially significant environmental impacts. We have great legal knowledge and experience of this field and we can help you compiling a preliminary environmental assessment for a road design in the level of detail suitable for you. We have also consulted The Road Administration about the matter.

  • Environmental management plans for the road design construction period
    The necessity to compile an environmental management plan for the road design construction period is often specified in the design criteria. Compiling of these management plans is done according to the best Estonian and foreign practices and experience.

  • Construction supervision for road designs
    High-quality spatial planning, technical design compiling and environmental impact assessment are not very useful if the construction process is not actually done according to them. There are very few examples in Estonia where the environmental expert is involved in owner supervision team, but we have participated in foreign projects as the environmental expert. We are also filling in the environmental expert role in the only known Estonian road construction project where the environmental expert is individually involved – Tartu´s Eastern Ring Road Construction.
