Digitising the Estonian built environment – Virgo Sulakatko

Published by Will Needham on

Digitising the Estonian built environment. This show comes from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Tallinn has a really incredible reputation for being the ‘most digital society in the world’ and for this this reason alone, it’s a place I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time.

I sat down with Virgo Sulakatko. Virgo has a really interesting background. He currently sits on the Board at Novarc Group, one of Estonia’s leading AEC consultancies.

He is also the Vice-Chairman of the Estonian Digital Construction Cluster and you’ll hear more about what that is in the show.

In this episode, we’ll be answering some big questions, like:

  • How is the most digital society in the world approaching the digitalisation of their construction sector?
  • How can innovation thrive in a country where ‘everyone knows each other’?
  • What benefits can be sought when you have your national digital construction platform in the same system as your digital healthcare, digital taxes, digital voting? From a data perspective the opportunities are just mind-blowing!

I believe in a future built environment that is safe, sustainable, healthy, efficient & productive. Actually, I believe pockets of excellence in each of these things already exist; they are just distributed geographically in different parts of the world. My mission is to go out there and find these pockets of excellence and tell the stories of the people, projects, policies that are responsible for such positive steps.
