Shota Gordesiani: unification of the design documentation raises the efficiency of construction

01.06.2018

Since May 14, this year, the order of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation came into force, approving the standard form of the task for designing the capital construction object and the requirements for its preparation. Shota Gordesiani, President of the Association of National Organizations of Expertise in Construction (NOEX), commented on the innovation, noting that unification of the project documentation is a step towards effective and safe construction.

“The order of the Ministry of Construction of Russia is one of the links in the chain of measures that has been built recently in order to ensure optimal and most effective design decisions and establishing a reliable construction cost at the design stage of capital construction projects. Ultimately, this is the quality of project documentation as a guarantee for the effective and safe construction and operation of objects for various purposes.

From this point of view, any search for solutions to problems is, I think, completely justified. In this case, the approval of the sample design task is aimed at unifying the requirements for future design documentation, regardless of the purpose of the capital construction project and the professional level of the developer and design organization. It is also important that the design task is tested in the process of analyzing the documentation for investment justification.

However, the balance between the various procedures must be clearly observed. For example, in practice, the composition and content of the investment justification and the technique of technological and price audit of these justifications did not repeat the composition and content of the project documentation and the methodology of the urban development expertise.

The President of Russia in his speeches constantly reminds us of the need to shorten the terms of obtaining permits for the construction of various facilities. Therefore, introducing new procedures, it is necessary to evaluate their regulatory impact on the fulfillment of this instruction of the head of state, “the expert concluded.
