Contribution to the estonian society
We are experts in the field of real estate. We participate in task forces that promote innovation in real estate, contribute to the diversity of Estonian architecture and public space and support research and the next generation in the field.
Commissioning works of art and architectural competitions
In cooperation with the Estonian Association of Architects, we organise architectural competitions for all new buildings of public importance. Close cooperation with experts in architecture ensure preparation of well-considered terms of reference and high-quality results.
We also improve public space aesthetically, by allocating one percent of the cost of a public building to commission artworks.
The scope of possible works of art commissioned through public art competition is broad, covering both traditional oil or acrylic paintings, drawings and sculpture as well as interactive installations, videos and objects of light and sound.
In 2019, RKAS organised competitions for the commissioning of works of art that resulted in completion of four works of art with total value of 198,500 euros.
Scholarships and research support
Since 2011, we have allocated 126,000 euros to pay scholarships to students in bachelor, master and doctoral study and students in applied higher education and 579,000 euros to support research activities.
In 2019, we allocated:

- 18,000 euros for the study on determining the security classes of buildings and assessing the investment need and compliance of existing security measures with prescribed requirements.
