Electronic document flow helped developers in pandemic conditions


The pandemic and temporary simple on construction sites did not have a serious impact on the development of the industry. This is evidenced by the analysis conducted by the National Association of Builders (NOSTROY). According to the vice-president of NOSTROY, Alexander Ishin, the stable position of Moscow companies in the pandemic conditions largely ensured their high-quality interaction with government authorities and the simplicity of document circulation.

“Nothing has changed compared to 2019 – there are no failures or jumps. Still, a month and a half of downtime is not so much, companies worked on old contracts, and now bidding is carried out in the previous volumes.

Of course, there are certain delays in the payment of membership fees, but in general everything is stable. In the capital, 20% of all construction companies in the country work – this is a very large volume, concentrated in one place. We work closely with the construction department, the department of urban planning policy of the Moscow government, and the state construction supervision of Moscow. It was with us that an automated program began to be implemented, which allows us to create a single space between construction companies, SRO, NOSTROY and construction supervision bodies.

We see that this system is very effective, especially in conditions of self-isolation or work in remote access – nothing is lost, all letters reach, information moves much faster. It’s very convenient! And to say that someone did not receive something or did not see it is no longer possible. This greatly simplifies the work, the relationship with construction companies, because you can quickly request any documents, reports to eliminate violations without going to the construction site. In general, the system developed by NOSTROY helped us a lot when working in self-insulation conditions. Moreover, the critical situation requires non-standard solutions and new approaches to work”.
