How is Moscow
For the sake of this post, I had to wear a hard hat and rubber boots. Someone must, at the risk of their lives, to talk about how to build today the suburbs!
Always I wondered what a modern building. Here the image of Soviet construction site, many times shown in the cinema, on the one hand, and in jokes - on the other hand, is clear. Really, nothing has changed in 30 years? New technologies, new principles of operation? To see how today to build houses for the blue construction fence, I had to go to the construction site.
Agree able to visit the construction of residential complex "Center 2". Builds here "DSK-1".
Two words about Overheard on the territory of 163 hectares in railway will be built 6 residential houses 17-25 floors typical and improved design. These are the house really does elevate.
For those who do not know the city train is located 9 kilometers from Moscow on Nosovihinskoe highway. Place Residential District is located right in the city center. Frankly, I am expecting to see the dirt, broken roads, all accompanied by a construction site, against which always serve the residents of nearby houses. But no. Everything is clean as clean can be near the construction site. All that needs to be fenced - fenced, which should be painted - painted. Something reminiscent of the Soviet construction site of pro-powered work of films. But the real Soviet construction site where tar cooked in the open air on the fire, and lay next to abandoned (and often scarce!) Materials - not in the slightest degree.
The plant relies on skilled workers - citizens of Russia. Not to be unfounded, in the photo - the foreman. The sun is shining in his eyes, but even so, he still bears little resemblance to the southerner
By the way, the superintendent's name is Vladimir. I managed to porasprashivat bit. He hereditary builder. His father worked in this company 30 years (!) As a senior foreman (though in Moscow), and the son goes to school, and, apparently, will continue the family business. However, his father hoped that his son did go to college and become very much the boss, but in the summer it threatens to throw out on the scene as an ordinary worker. To the ground I knew how to build houses.
By the way, about children. I was told that in the neighborhood immediately built a kindergarten and a school. That is, the infrastructure is being built in parallel with the construction of houses.
And then just build 6 (six!) Schools, eight (8!) Of kindergartens, music schools and two clinics. In fact, the neighborhood is not built, and the city in the city.
In the past remember the first built houses, and then only after ten years of school and kindergarten ... Now - create a family, citizens have much to give children.
To make the previous picture, we had to climb to the 17th floor on foot. Elevators are not yet established, well at least not have to climb 25 floors. But the builders every day here go ... Can you imagine what the then "ran out of cigarettes," or there "were driven to the store in a hurry." And in the photo below - the future apartment. Some people are lucky to live here. And I, when I come to visit, I can bet on anything and guess what is written on the wall under the wallpaper.
The apartments are for final finishing. "Fine finishing" - "fine finish" strife. Here it is at the highest level: the windows and balconies are glazed, installed metal radiators with thermostats and closing shields around the home copper wiring, sockets, circuit breakers are in the bathroom tiles on the floor, on the walls, made ceiling finishes, a bathtub, in toilet water meters. I mean, do makeup and inspires. They said that when buying an apartment can be ordered with repair. Of course, standard and poor but nonetheless! The cost of apartments is increasing, but not by much.
At the height of boots and a helmet. In the photo it is not visible: 1) how tired I am here to climb, 2) as there is high, 3) how can we actually interesting.
In my head at this height immediately starts playing the song "Not firemen, we not carpenters." They say that even those who do not know any words or melody. Hopefully, this option only works in a helmet, and will not work for those who buy apartments under the roof.
If you come very close to the edge, you can see a small pond. After delivery of the object of his ennoble, and afterwards there will be quite cozy.
Construction crane. Climb inside the cabin did not work, which is a pity. Ever wanted to see what it looks like for the building crane. But - safety above all else, and I did not particularly insist: after 17 floors of a conventional ladder, climb another crane would be very difficult.
At the top are hard at work. I honestly do not understand how you can work at a height wind. On the other hand, a little scary, and just to the edge of the roof to approach, let alone do something there ... Of course, the insurance, but still scary. Perhaps a matter of habit. Another thing that surprised: at first glance, pretty chaotic marketplace crowded with some construction pieces. But when the work is, you realize that everything stands in its place, everything is functional and necessary.
Note. Crane at this point brings up the panel. As I explained, this is a three-layer sandwich panel. Concrete-insulation-concrete. Such material retains heat as well as a brick wall thickness meter. In the subway!
It is then "parked" in the right place. I can say that the builders are very fast, but it - professionally. In the picture it can not be seen very well, but in reality you can see exactly how to set, and then shpaklyuyut seams, leaving no gaps or "holes." Therefore, modern prefab houses are much warmer than brick. A built much faster!
At the top, on the 25th floor, I went already on the external high-speed elevator. Builders still have mercy on me. Walking distance to such a height, I would venture to whether unlikely to rise even for photos. Speed elevator looks like.
The booth was attached outside the house and will work until the moment when they will not let elevators.
from the inside view. Not-glass panoramic lift, but still nothing!
From the 25th floor seen Moscow. Basically, to go, as I mentioned earlier, very close.
They told me that the building has made great progress in recent years. New materials, builders are working with the soul. A boss arrives at the construction site every week. Director general, as I said, working, personally runs the same route that I did. And also in the helmet. Personal safety should not be forgotten, and it is not will make special plates. A clear reminder: Do not forget, and then fly.
My advice - if you want to buy an apartment - do not be lazy. And explore the real state of affairs in addition to brochures. Try to get to the very construction.
Not much time it takes one such excursion.
Even if you want to buy an apartment in the "zero cycle", or vice versa house is already put - try to get on any other object builder. On this construction site I liked it.
Ready entrance looks like this:
At each entrance there is a ramp platform for the disabled and prams.
hydrants have not yet installed. The picture is even sent to the exhibition.
Finally, I want to say that I was very surprised by the look of today's building. Professional staff, a clear working process, all in their places doing their job. Again, new materials, new technologies. Terribly interesting and informative. Initially, I was tuned to see something more chaotic. But it turned out that all of the very opposite. I would add that not refuse to walk on the home being built somewhere within the Ring Road, just for comparison.
