“Building Moscow”: dedicated to Builder’s Day, an exhibition opened on Chistoprudny Boulevard

Employees of the holding and projects implemented with their participation are among its heroes

Over the past decade, Moscow has been given a new look — the city has become a comfortable place to live, thanks largely to Moscow’s builders. The Russian capital has never been built at such a record pace. At present, about half a million people work at Moscow’s construction sites on the ground and underground: designers, engineers, workers in dozens of building trades.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the operator of the key urban development programs of Moscow, and, of course, the “Building Moscow” photo exhibition has not taken place without the participation of specialists of the company. They contributed to the construction of new stations, lines, and electric depots of Moscow Metro, built the largest Nizhegorodskaya Transport Interchange Hub, gave Moscow a unique park with Moscow Concert Hall Zaryadye and the unique Irina Viner-Usmanova Palace of Gymnastics in Luzhniki, participated in the construction of Voronovskoe Infectious Diseases Hospital which saved thousands of lives, and right now, they create the National Space Center, one of the largest space industry centers in the world.

The “Building Moscow” photo exhibition opened on Chistoprudny Boulevard is dedicated to these particular persons – industrious and responsible builders and their projects, which have been forever inscribed in Moscow’s history.

Previously, Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction said that in total, more than 1 million people are involved in the construction sector and related industries in the capital, who are facing large-scale tasks. “Among our priorities, there is radical modernization of the capital’s transport framework and integration of different ways of getting around the city into a single system, including the development of railroads, the construction of new metro lines and stations, as well as the renovation of roadways and junctions. Despite the large-scale work done in the last ten years, we still have to build millions of square meters of modern housing with all the necessary infrastructure: kindergartens and schools, hospitals, sports, and cultural centers, to implement programs of a comprehensive renovation of housing stock and development of riverside areas of the Moskva River”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

The exhibition will continue its work on Chistoprudny Boulevard from August 9 till August 22.
