New requirements to the appearance of houses, to their finishes and to the color schemes of their facades, are for this purpose to be developed, it was stated.Authorities carried out an assessment of the newly introduced standards, which will offer a chance to builders, and then buyers, to save money in a number of new ways.

Russian Crisis affects Turkish construction
Not far from Antalya at Belek, near the village of Bogazak, there are unfinished houses intended for the rental personnel working at hotels of different categories along the coast. Answering the question of our correspondent - why this happens, an employee of the tour company said quite simply. Filling the hotels with tourists from Russia decreased by 25-35%compared with the same period last year. Hotels are forced to optimize their costs, i.e. reduce staff. The one who stays at work also has to optimize expenses and instead of renting an apartment for 4-6 people, rents an apartment for 8-10 people a season. For this reason local construction companies have to stop the planned construction of low houses for rent and wait for the best times. It should be noted: the Turkish investors – developers don't hurry for this reason to complete hotels, both small, and big. So on a building site of CRYSTAL WATERWORD RESORT hotel, where two new buildings are being constructed (the other eight did last year), our correspondent saw only two workers during the working day. Facades of the buildings under construction unlike the previously built have cheaper finish.

The final assessment takes into account 26 indicators, including the qualitative composition of members of the SRO, which is based on the rating of the companies included in the CPO. The company stands by the insurer-liable SRO members and holds a compensation fund, and has sufficient qualified staff to supervise the activities of its members.Among other important indicators are "Implementation of legislation" and, in particular, information on the transparency of SROs, "Reporting on inspections of members for the last fiscal year", and "distribution of SRO members by region", said Strokan.
