Apartment buildings’ construction in the Arctic will start in 2020
The construction of apartment buildings in the Arctic will begin in 2020. This project is especially significant for the republic, since such construction in the northern regions has not been carried out since the USSR times, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to the Regional Head’s Government.
Head of the republic Aisen Nikolaev held a meeting on the implementation of the republic address program “Resettlement of Citizens from the Emergency Housing Fund for 2019-2025.” The meeting reviewed the implementation of this program in the Arctic regions.
“We start work from zero. There is no talking about construction industry in the Arctic, because there is no such thing. We’ll have to import everything, even such things as sand,” said the head Aisen Nikolaev.
He stressed that it is necessary to study all options for the delivery of building materials to the northern regions, to look for opportunities to minimize the cost of delivery.
The head of the republic instructed Prime Minister Vladimir Solodov, Deputy Prime Minister Kirill Bychkov and all responsible persons to approach construction in the Arctic extremely carefully, taking into account the remoteness of the regions from the central part of Yakutia and the short navigation period.
