Characteristics of low-rise construction in Eastern Siberia

Lilia G. Rudykh, Irkutsk National Research Technical University

Abstract: In this work, the issues arising during the construction of low-rise buildings in Eastern Siberia in 2021–2022 were addressed, including the changes associated with the special military operation and West-ern and the USA sanctions against Russia. Attention was paid to the characterisation of the main tech-nologies used in the construction of low-rise buildings. The necessity of using novel approaches to solving the problems associated with the implementation of engineering infrastructure facilities, in-tended as components of new low-rise construction projects, was substantiated. 90% of low-rise build-ings comprise private suburban wooden houses, most suitable for living in an area characterised by a harsh climate. Among the used construction materials, rounded logs, laminated veneer lumber, bricks, cellular concrete, and aerated concrete should be mentioned. Naturalness, environmental friendliness and low thermal conductivity are among the advantages of wooden constructions. Due to certain limita-tions of the regulatory framework in the construction industry associated with low-rise buildings, it is necessary to improve legislation in this area, as well as strengthen control over the quality of work. The main issues were addressed, including rising prices for construction materials, a reduction in incomes, a delay in obtaining a building permit, weak competition and a small number of modern equipment. The main trends in the development of low-rise construction, the potential of the modern construction in-dustry in Eastern Siberia, its prospects and modernisation were determined.
