The Transformation of Russia’s Construction, Housing and Utilities Industry

06 Jun, 15:00–16:15
The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

In 2018, the national projects ‘Housing and Urban Environment’ and ‘Digital Economy of the Russian Federation’ were adopted to provide a framework for the substantial transformation of Russia’s construction, housing, and utility services sector. The changes will rely on advanced information technologies and platform solutions that provide for collective information management and seamless design as well as the construction and operation of capital construction facilities, which will also be reflected in the draft Strategy for Development of the Construction Industry of the Russian Federation 2030. The most important aspect for the industry should be the formation of effective mechanisms to attract investors to public utility infrastructure facilities as part of the preparation of the Strategy for the Development of the Housing and Utilities Industry of the Russian Federation 2035. This transformation should lead to a significant improvement in the quality of design solutions, minimize construction time and costs, make the industry more transparent, and, most importantly, ensure the quality and safety of capital construction projects throughout their life cycle.
