Today, on the 5th of October, a three-days-old event, III International forum of high-rise and unique construction 100+ Forum Russia, started its work.
As our special correspondent Olga Evoyan reports from the ground, this year the event was dedicated to a complex discussion of problems in the field of high-rise construction, development of underground spaces, perspectives of underground towns building, erection of bridges and structures with large spans, specification of new legislation, as well as adoption of a number of measures at the governmental level.
As early as at 9:30 a.m, before the official opening ceremony, all eight halls of Yekaterinburg EXPO could hardly hold everyone wishing to take part in discussions and round tables devoted to the most topical issues.
In particular, the participants will discuss the way how to put an architectural conception into practice and adapt it to Russian environment. A profound interest was caused by a public lecture entitled: “A Bridge Across The Strait Of Messina. Engineering Specifics And Foundation”, a master class through the example of surveys conducted for construction of such unique high-rise complexes, as Lakhta Center in Saint Petersburg, Moscow City and Akhmat Tower in Grozny.
This year over 3500 participants from 20 countries attended the forum, including 350 officials, representatives of construction industry, scientific community, as well as leading experts from Russia.
As a reference, the event is held annually with the support and participation of Russian Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities.
