In-situ concreting is nearing completion during the construction of the administrative building of the Yuzhnoye electric depot, according to Mr. Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“The construction workers are completing the cast-in-situ structures of the administrative building as part of the Yuzhnoye electric depot. The building consists of four sections of variable height – from three to seven storeys. The first three sections are fully made of monolith. Currently, the work is being carried out on the sixth floor of the last section”, noted Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

According to him, 5.7 thousand cubic metres of cast-in-situ structures have been erected out of a total project scope of 6 thousand cubic metres of concrete.

Mr. Konstantin Maslakov, Director General of MIPSTROY 1 (the leading construction division of Mosinzhproekt) specified that the over 14 thousand square metre building would provide all of the required amenities for the personnel of the electric depot complex to work and rest comfortably.

“The building is designed to accommodate the administrative and technical staff of the Yuzhnoye electric depot. It has office premises for specialists and managers, a set of premises for recreation of locomotive crews and workers, as well as a canteen, an assembly hall with 168 seats, two gyms and a recreation complex. This will include welfare facilities and a medical unit”, specified Mr. Konstantin Maslakov.

He also added that more than 440 different premises were to be set up, with a total built-up area of 3 thousand square metres.

In 2023, Mosinzhproekt celebrates its 65th anniversary. Since 2011, with the involvement of the company, more than 150 km of metro lines and 70 new metro stations have been commissioned, and 11 electric depots have been constructed and reconstructed. Currently, the construction of new electric depots and the reconstruction of existing ones to serve the rolling stock of the capital’s rapidly expanding metro system continue.
