Laying of engineering utilities is completed at the construction site

Construction of the stabling and repair facility and administrative buildings at the Yuzhnoye electric depot on the Zamoskvoretskaya metro line continues. “Laying of engineering utilities is completed at the construction site”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the managing company to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“The heat distribution and water supply networks, which ensure the operation of the current Brateevo electric depot located nearby, are removed away from the development footprint. Consequently, the earthworks, piling and cast-in-situ activities at the stabling and repair facility of the new Yuzhnoye depot can now unfold in full. Besides, we proceed with installation of the permanent water supply and sanitation networks at the facility: laying of pipelines is being done employing the micro-tunnelling method”, specified Andrey Bochkarev.

The Deputy Mayor added that the construction division of Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding, MIP-Stroy 1, completed construction of the pile foundation for the administrative and amenity building, and proceeds with assembling the cast-in-situ structures of the zero cycle of the stabling and repair facility.

“More than 60% of the cast-in-situ foundation structures are completed at the stabling and repair facility, the main building of the prospective Yuzhnoye electric depot, and installation of the steel structures continues, half of which is already installed. In order to speed up the construction, a mock-up pre-assembly of the frame was used at the manufacturing plant. In parallel, we proceed with laying of the shell-and-core utilities. Upon installation of the pile foundation of the administrative and amenity building, we began laying the concrete mix of the foundation grill”, specified Konstantin Maslakov, General Director of MIP-Stroy 1.

He clarified, that the facilities of the new electric depot will enable servicing of 29 trains of the Moscow Metro daily, thus creating around 1400 jobs. Within the area of 13.6 hectares there will be built 33 buildings and structures of various functional purposes.

It is noteworthy that there are 20 electric depots in operation in Moscow. Six of them are at the various stages of re-construction or construction: Nizhegorodskoye, Yuzhnoye, Salaryevo, Vladykino, Vykhino, Aminyevskoye, owing to which 7000 new jobs will be created in the capital city.
