NOOSTROY APPEALED TO THE RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF CONSTRUCTION, HOUSING AND PUBLIC UTILITIES WITH THE REQUEST TO ASSIST IN PREVENTING THE SUSPENSION OF THE CONSTRUCTIONAL WORK
On 3, April 2020 the President of the Association of all-Russian non-state nonprofit organizations – all-Russian trade Association of employers “National union of self-regulated organizations, based on the membership of representatives implementing building” addressed a message to Vladimir Yakushev, the Minister of construction.
The letter contains a request to assist in situation when bodies of executive power of all Russian regions take a premature decision to stop constructional work without considering features of continuous nature of construction and installation work.
In the opinion of the association, constructional process includes work, which cannot be suspended according to production and technological conditions. For another thing, enterprises producing building materials and constructions must work regularly and supply their products to the building sites to ensure continuity of building process. Under the present circumstances, the recommendations on the organization of continuous repair and construction work or work performed under extraordinary circumstances at property development companies, technical customers, contractors, and industrial construction materials companies are urgently needed.
At the moment the Executive authorities of the subjects of the Russian Federation have no unified position regarding the types of continuous and urgent construction work in the conditions of non - working days, established by the decree of the President of the Russian Federation, dated 25 March, 2020 № 206 “About declaring non-working days in the Russian Federation”, and the decree of the President of the Russian Federation, dated 02 April, 2020 № 239 “About measures to ensure the sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population on the territory of the Russian Federation in connection with spread of new corona virus infection (COVID-19)”. However in some regions of the country representatives of the Executive power support the point of view of Noostroy. Particularly, Ministry of construction and development of infrastructure in Sverdlovsk region, where one of the SLK Cement plants works, has the same position.
