Marat Khusnullin: Moscow has successful experience on the introduction of information technologies in construction
Digitalization of the construction industry is one of the priority tasks facing the city today. Most of the services are already provided online, new electronic services are being developed to simplify the work of developers and establish dialogue with the authorities. Moscow already has successful experience in implementing information technology. This was stated by Deputy Mayor of Moscow on urban policy and construction Marat Khusnullin.
“We have good experience in obtaining building permits in electronic form. Three or four years ago, everyone said that it was impossible, that documents should only be in paper form. But having made the decision, we first worked out the mechanism at budget construction sites, gave time to the business to prepare, and conducted dozens of training seminars. And step by step, we came to the conclusion that today almost all public services in the field of construction are in electronic form. I can say that so far not a single megalopolis in the world has coped with this task. Even advanced Singapore cannot boast the full amount of documentation in electronic form”, said Marat Khusnullin.
Earlier, the head of the Construction Complex stated that the conversion of services into electronic form has become the most significant and sought-after administrative reform in the construction industry. More than 90% of all applications for public services today are submitted by developers online.
“To date, all the basic construction services in Moscow have been converted into electronic form. Of these 19 services in the construction industry, 15 can be issued only online. And we see that this form of public services is in demand by Moscow developers: since the beginning of the year, 94% of all applications have been submitted via the Internet”, said Marat Khusnullin.
