Construction of the "Sovelmash" design and engineering technology department

The "Sovelmash" design and engineering technology department (D&E) is being built in the "Technopolis "Moscow" special economic zone in Russia. According to a reputable international rating, it is one of the best technoparks in the world. To become a resident of the special economic zone (SEZ), "Sovelmash" traveled quite a challenging path. A large package of documents for joining the SEZ had been submitted, many inspections of the project and the company had been carried out. In early 2019, the project was supported by the Moscow government and "Sovelmash" became a resident of "Technopolis "Moscow", after which it was leased a land plot to construct the enterprise at a reduced cost. 
The D&E will conduct its activities in the most favorable conditions. The SEZ residents are provided with considerable tax and customs privileges, access to urban communications, roads and railways. 
It took more than a year and a half to obtain the permit for the D&E construction. The project documentation had been carefully prepared and checked by the regulatory authorities. After this trial, we can say with confidence that the project of the unique innovative enterprise meets all the Russian legislation requirements. At the end of 2020, a permit for the D&E construction was obtained, after which full-fledged work on the site immediately began. 
In the summer of 2021, the D&E construction entered its active stage: the zero cycle was completed, almost the entire metal frame of the building was erected, and many other tasks were carried out. According to the preliminary schedule, the construction of the "Sovelmash" engineering center is planned to be completed in 2022.
The general contractor of the construction is the company "HAKA MOSCOW", which has been operating on the European and Russian construction markets for about 50 years. The subcontractor is the Astron company, whose factory manufactures metal structures for the D&E frame.
The contractors and "Sovelmash" are carefully monitoring the quality of construction work, as well as checking the design and estimate documentation. Everything is done to ensure that the construction is completed as planned and in full compliance with the requirements.
