Moscow standards for new housing: What buildings will replace the five-storey buildings
The new buildings will feature spacious comfortable lounges, entrances with low thresholds and ramps for limited-mobility residents and lifts that drop to the level of the entrance so that the use of stairs is not required.
Dilapidated five-storey buildings will give way to monolithic concrete and panel buildings of a new generation: high quality housing built using modern designs and energy-saving technologies.
The new designs will provide for buildings of varying comfort levels, numbers of floors and configurations. Modern three-layer panels are energy-efficient; flats in these buildings will have an open plan; lifts will descend to the level of the entrance so that the use of stairs is not required.
The designers take into account tighter security measures. The buildings are equipped with video cameras, for round the clock surveillance.
