Yekaterinburg uses new process to build kindergartens

Construction of a new kindergarten began on Saturday in Yekaterinburg.

The two-story building with seats for 95 students went up "in record time," according to Oblgazeta.

The kindergarten is expected to be opened by November.

The kindergarten is the newest in a line of such buildings quickly constructed in the city using the Sadiki module style of building. The buildings mostly use precast concrete or stone allowing for modular mounting plates to be places directly at the construction site, according to Mikhail Ladeyshikov, the head of the industrial engineering department of the urban construction committee.

The technology is more expensive, but it saves cost by cutting down on construction time. A kindergarten can be built in six months. On average, it takes nine months to complete construction on a kindergarten.

The process uses a permanent framework technology of concrete panels. Finished panels are brought to the construction site and connected using metal fittings. The spacing between the panels and the inner wall is then filled with concrete and mineral wool insulation, with bricklaying to finish the process, according to Oblgazeta.
