Key themes in the Strategy for Developing the Construction Industry in Russia by 2030

What you need to know about the Russian government’s plans and what awaits the Russian construction industry.

The Russian Ministry of Construction has released the draft Strategy for Developing the Construction Industry in Russia by 2030, which could lead to significant changes in the Russian building industry and the building and finishing materials and equipment market.

Developed by leading experts from a range of professional and governmental institutions, the strategy aims to promote the use of innovative materials and simplify the approval process for their use.

The draft prescribes that innovative building materials and technologies must meet at least one criterion, including simplifying and accelerating the construction process, reducing construction or operating costs, increasing energy efficiency, and increasing a building’s life cycle.

The Ministry of Construction currently approves the suitability of new materials, products, structures and technologies in line with a decree from 1997. The Ministry plans to create a comprehensive system of regulatory documents in line with international standards, particularly EAEU documents, by 2030. The Ministry’s technical certificate will be updated and a digital form will be created.

Digitisation in the building industry will cover almost all business processes

Digitisation is set to affect recruitment, accounting, internal document management, planning, development, advertising, customer support, procurement, production of goods, provision of services, contract managing and all other processes in the building industry. A single digital space will be created for data and information resources, as well as publicly accessible search and reference platforms.

The Russian government will also focus on implementing building information modelling (BIM) at all stages of the life cycle of buildings and urban areas. Augmented reality technologies, the Internet of Things, 3D-printing, generative design, machine learning, 3D representation technologies, and technologies that facilitate decision-making are set to become very popular.

Digitisation at MosBuild: the exhibition will host an event co-organised with Russia’s leading development firms. Speakers will include leading international experts in development, construction and architecture.

Vladimir Yakushev, Russian Minister of Construction and Housing and Communal Services, announced at the Time for Change residential real estate conference on 21 October, that multi-unit housing of about 44-46 million m2 is set to be commissioned by the end of 2019. “In 2019, we expect new housing results to be at the same level as 2018,” the minister said.

The volume of commissioned housing remains stable and according to many real estate agencies, one of the current trends is buyers’ interest in fully-renovated apartments. Renovated apartments are selling much faster today, demonstrating that the industry is still stable.

How does this affect building materials manufacturers and suppliers?

Simply put, innovation is key. It’s the best way to maintain leadership on the market, increase your sales, and push the industry forward.

It’s vital under current circumstances to be flexible to be able to respond quickly to changes and optimise marketing efforts. Promoting your competitive advantages to your target audience and introducing new products and smart technologies to improve the building process is invaluable.

The best way to promote your brand on the Russian market is by bringing it to MosBuild 2020, Russia’s leading build & interiors exhibition, to meet the industry face-to-face.

Present your products to industry leaders actively looking for new products and suppliers.

Among visitors to MosBuild 2019 were buyers, specifiers, wholesalers, retailers, and leading development companies including Hals Development, Samolet, Stroy Engineering, Krost, Don Stroy, Capital Group, Leader Invest, Tashir, PIK, Inteko, LSR, A101, and Ingrad.
