we Will remind, as already wrote „“ the contract with the Austrian company “ Renova SG “ has concluded in February, 2007, according to treaty provisions the Austrian builder till the end of 2008 was obliged to execute an underground cycle of works for building of houses of the first stage of microdistrict (about 140 thousand sq. metres). In August, 2008 as general director Strabag in Russia Alexander Ortenberg has told, has been held the new tender on building of a land part (136 thousand sq.), and Strabag has won it is contract cost made 1,5 mlrd roubles. However in September crisis, and " has begun; Renova - SG “ has decided not to sign the contract, and repeatedly to hold competition, to reduce its cost. However Strabag it was not ready to reduce the price, the contract has got to the Ekaterinburg Open Company “ RSU - 37 “ which, according to the source in “ Renove “ has offered the contract from 10 % - nym discount. Mister Ortenberg notices that “ Renova - SG “ plans to offer the habitation for state purchases the price for sq. metre for which is established at 32 thousand roubles level, in this case the building cost price should not exceed 23 thousand roubles. “ we cannot offer such prices. We are ready to participate in the subsequent tenders on “Academic“, however are not assured that we can offer necessary conditions “ - it explains.

participants of the market say that “ Renova - SG “ makes too rigid demands and doubt that new genpodrjadchiku it will be possible to be entered in determined price. “ 23 - 25 thousand for sq. The metre is a bottom lath of building only one box with the cheapest variant of furnish, without communications, access roads, house connection to networks and an underground parking, and that provided that the earth is received at floor price “ - considers zamgendirektora Joint-Stock Company “ JUIT - Uralstroj “ Alexander Pogonchik. The founder of building corporation agrees With it " also; the Beacon “ Vladimir Konkov: “ the Cost price of building of “box“ can manage in 23 - 25 thousand roubles depending on raw materials cost, besides, practice shows that the domestic companies really offer the services on 10 - 15 % more cheaply, therefore are probability that the new contractor all - taki can keep within the declared cost price “. Mister Konkov However, specifies, all calculations are conducted under condition of absence of payments for an infrastructure.
