Mid-Urals Development Corporation: Yekaterinburg EXPO congress hall, entrance to be finished after Innoprom 2012

10 May 2012 (09:33)

According to the Director-General of Mid-Urals Development Corporation Sergey Filippov, all the unfinished construction jobs on the premises around and inside Yekaterinburg EXPO exhibition center will be completed within deadline limits, so all the jobs will be over before Innoprom 2012 kicks off.

‘The recent stoppage had to do with both the weather conditions (repairing the parking lot during the snow-melting period makes no sense) and the prolonged disagreements between the customer and the general contractor, Rusgrad. Now Rusgrad is not happy with the final cost of the construction jobs (even though the figures were confirmed by a government board of experts). In fact, the builders have been sabotaging the process for the last month and did not let the investor’s representatives onto the construction site,’ Filippov said.

The other day’s meeting at Chairman of Sverdlovsk Region Government Vladimir Vlasov’s, which all of the parties to the project attended, resulted in a number of decisions that should help resolve the conflict. All the coordinating procedures will be implemented in the very near future, the issue of paying the debts owed to subcontractors is also being settled.

‘At the same time, Ural Exhibition Center, acting on Mid-Urals Development Corporation’s behalf, is doing everything necessary to complete the exhibition center. To make Yekaterinburg EXPO look the way it was designed, the congress hall and the entrance have to be finished. However, this will most likely be done after Innoprom 2012 in order not to inconvenience the visitors to the exhibition,’ he added.
