BLAGOVESHCHENSK, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Belarusian constructors say they are ready to build new houses for residents of Russia’s Amur region, who lost their houses in the flood in 2013.
“The constructors /from Belarus/ have come here, and now we are discussing the prices and locations,” the Maritime Territory’s deputy head of the government Vladislav Bakumenko told reporters on Sunday.
He said the specialists from Belarus had invited Russia’s consumer rights authorities to visit the plant in Belarus and to check quality of the details to be supplied.
“We are speaking about 65 houses. They will be made of Belarusian natural wood, and here /in the Amur region/ the constructors will be only assembling them,” head of the Belarusian delegation - minister of agriculture and food Leonid Zayats said. “It takes five days to build a house of the kind from the very beginning to the roof.”
He continued saying Belarus also has frosts of 35 or even 40 degrees, thus the houses would fit the climate in the Amur region. The Belarusians have presented three projects - houses of 42, or 60 or 90 square metres.
Governor of Russia’s Maritime Territory Oleg Kozhemyako said earlier that the large-scale construction of houses for people who had suffered from the flood would begin from March 12. By that time, the region should finalise all the preparatory works related to distribution of land and to respective paperwork. All projects of the houses to be built will be approved by future owners.
The Amur region has bought already 120 flats for the homeless residents. The regional ministry of construction and architecture reports by 30 September it would be necessary to build 104 tower blocks and 106 houses for private owners. The Maritime Territory has received from the federal budget 348 million roubles for construction and repairing of houses affected by the natural calamity.
