MINSK, 21 April (BelTA) – Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor at the Department of Metal and Wooden Structures of the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering Yevgeny Melekhin gave his take on development prospects of the construction industry under sanctions. He took part at the press conference “Import substitution in construction: search for effective solutions for the construction industry under sanctions” that took place at the BelTA press center.

“By now a number of opportunities have emerged for the construction industry due to new effective solutions that allow dropping the managerial strategies that were imposed on us before and that implied parasitic networks of supplies, technologies and industries (brands, patents, any nominal forms to get profits from owning a brand). The purpose of our research is to improve development strategies for construction industry enterprises. We view the construction complex as a locomotive that can help address all the development problems of a national economy,” Yevgeny Melekhin said.

According to him, attention is also paid to integrated design and construction solutions that allow minimizing the use of any brand name technologies. “We do not need any labels, personalized brand processes that would hold back the development of the construction industry, scientific potential, etc.,” he noted. “We are studying standard architectural and structural forms - residential buildings, industrial and agricultural complexes, and others facilities. We will assess efficiency indicators of existing production facilities. By analyzing the state of things in the construction complex, we can help address issues through new construction, renovation, upgrade. We rely on the great legacy of Soviet R&D competencies and we should make the most of this legacy,” the expert said.
