Yekaterinburg's Academic District project won the Best Completed Energy-Saving Project for Economy Class Housing at the Construction Ministry's recent urban development contest.
The Best Completed Energy-Saving Project for Economy Class Housing is considered one of the more important categories of the entire urban development contest.
In light of the category's importance, judges from Russia's Construction Ministry chose three finalists to present their projects at the upcoming Russian Investment Forum exhibition.
An A+ energy-efficient apartment project in Yekaterinburg also was among the three finalists chosen to be featured at the expo.
Natalya Antipina, the deputy construction minister for Russia, chaired the annual competition.
