Mechanisms of construction: in the USSR, in the West — and what is now in Russia?
The October Revolution centennial is a moment to reflect on how the Soviet construction industry worked. What mechanisms, in the light of the current state of the construction sector, are considered to be the most effective. What Soviet experiences are close to modern foreign practices and how to use the lessons learned in solving our vital problems. We talked about all of this with the honorary builder of the Russian Federation, government award holder, Doctor of Technical Sciences and Professor at the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU), Azary Abramovich Lapidus.
