Alexey Nikonov: Government agencies have shortage of qualified professionals
“I see no drastic improvement in the field of administrative barriers at the municipal level. Government agencies have a shortage of qualified professionals in the field of architecture and urban planning, the officials who are willing to help competently, efficiently supporting solutions to eliminate some mistakes in preparation of documents. Such forms of interaction, unfortunately, are almost gone. Requirements for design are changing, but given the stretched construction terms, regulatory authorities often make claims to a project at the stage of commissioning, saying that it is outdated,” said Alexey Nikonov, General director of “Nika Group” construction company.
