“…The present contest participants have successfully proven it. For example, “Belzarubezhstroy” has been one of the leaders in the construction sector for many years. The company is an important player in the internal and foreign market of construction and installation works, project designing and engineering. According to Vadim Drazhin, Head of Design Department of JSV “Belzarubezhstroy”, the secret of their team is simple – integrated approach to each design project and a well established team of professionals.

Primary objective of the company is to adopt the most effective modern technologies, and to create architectural projects on the basis of energy-, resource- and material-saving technologies. All these topical issues are resolved in current projects, which have already become a breakthrough in residential construction: design and construction of residential houses with the use of new stay-in-place formwork technology which has never been used in Belarus before, construction of cement bonded particle boards plant and formwork production department.

“Today we are mastering new trends and approving those which have been chosen earlier. We are cooperating actively with foreign and Belarusian partners. Currently we are carrying out a co-generation plant construction project in Kalinkovichi in cooperation with the group of companies from Lithuania. This project is funded by the World Bank as part of energy-saving and environmental program in Belarus.

“Belzarubezhstroy”, in cooperation with Mogilev region executive committee, is also planning construction of affordable housing for multi-child families in Krichev.  The frame-type buildings will be built using cement bonded particle boards. If the pilot project in Krichev appears to be successful, similar projects will be carried out all over Belarus”, said Vadim Drazhin.

“We are also exploring foreign markets, Saudi Arabia and Mongolia in particular. The activity of our company is of key importance for us; we are professionals and, therefore, are less affected by economical fluctuations. We are never satisfied with what has already been achieved and continue to look for orders. This award is certainly a significant advantage in tendering”.
