The corresponding section has been created on the center website. The projects of Rauta, Poltava-Proekt, Metinvest-SMC, Ukrstal Construction and others have already been placed in it.
The center turned to steel construction market participants with a request to share ready-made projects and design solutions for construction with minimum construction time and the use of elements with a maximum degree of prefabrication.
The matter concerns residential projects of prefabricated buildings to accommodate Ukrainian citizens who have lost their homes, as well as complex solutions for capital residential facilities and social infrastructure facilities (hospitals, schools, kindergartens, warehouses, shops).
All the information provided and contacts of the project authors will be posted on the uscc.ua website in the section “Construction projects and concepts for the restoration of Ukraine” https://www.uscc.ua/filterpages/category/proekti-ta-koncepcii-budivnictva-dla-vidnovlenna-ukraini

RAUTA PRESENTS MASTER PLAN OPTIONS FOR PREFABRICATED CAMPS FOR MIGRANTS

Engineering and construction company Rauta has developed master plans for the construction of prefabricated camps for internally displaced persons, which provide for the construction of houses from sandwich panels.
“The concept of camps for migrants is based on the highest possible speed of construction, comfortable layouts and increased energy efficiency. The unification of production processes and ease of installation make it possible to ensure mass construction of camps in any region of Ukraine in a matter of months,” Andriy Ozeichuk, Director of Rauta, who was quoted by the press company service, said.
According to him, the master plans take into account various needs and funding opportunities. At the same time, houses made of sandwich panels can be effectively operated for several decades. Terms of implementation of small towns are 3-12 months, depending on building area.
In addition, if the need for settlements disappears over time, houses can be dismantled and moved to another location, as well as repurposed to perform new functions: recreation centers, administrative centers, outpatient clinics, small retail or office buildings, etc. Sandwich panels can also be efficiently disposed of.
Engineering and construction company Rauta is engaged in the design of buildings, supply, installation and maintenance of frames, sandwich panels, facades, prefabricated buildings, etc. The company acts as an exclusive supplier of products of the Finnish concern Ruuki to Ukraine.

RAUTA PRESENTED A PROJECT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION PREFABRICATED CAMPS FOR INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS

The technology of sandwich panels frameless construction makes it possible to build settlements for migrants in just a few months.

Rauta has developed several options for master plans development, taking into account different needs and funding opportunities, which may include projects for houses with 1-2 rooms with a separate entrance, own bathroom and kitchen.

“The concept of settlements for migrants is based on the highest speed of construction, comfortable layouts and increased energy efficiency,” said Andriy Ozeychuk, Rauta director. “The unification of production processes and ease of installation make it possible to ensure the mass construction of camps in any region of Ukraine in a few months.”

A distinctive feature of the Rauta proposal in comparison with alternative solutions for temporary residence is that houses made of sandwich panels can be effectively operated for decades and, if necessary, people will stay in such settlements for a long time with a comfortable standard of living.

If sometime the need for such settlements disappears, then the houses can be easily dismantled and moved to other places, as well as repurposed to perform new functions: recreation facilities, administrative centers, outpatient clinics, small commercial or office buildings, etc.

RAUTA HAS DEVELOPED A SANDWICH PANEL CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY THAT ALLOWS TO BUILD HOUSES IN JUST 7 DAYS

The new technology of prefabricated one-story residential buildings makes it possible to provide people with high-quality houses as quickly as possible.
Ruukki sandwich panels are used as load-bearing and envelope structures of houses, which allows to reduce the cost of construction due to the absence of the need to build a frame. At the same time, cottages become highly energy efficient (heat transfer resistance R = 7.43 m2K / W) and durable (lifetime is more than 50 years).
Rauta has developed several practical layouts for sandwich panel cottages ranging from 26 m2 to 139 m2. At the same time, layouts with an area of ​​26 m2 and 49 m2 can be placed in blocks with common partitions. This solution allows to further reduce the cost of construction, as well as to build settlements for people in dire need of housing as quickly as possible.
“The key goal of this project was to create reliable, functional and energy-efficient houses with the shortest possible construction time,” said Andriy Ozeychuk, Rauta director. “The ergonomics of the layouts are deliberate so that even in a house with an area of ​​​​only 26 m2, a family of 3-4 people can live comfortably.”

KYIV-BASED RAUTA DEVELOPS DESIGN OF PREFABRICATED MOBILE HOSPITALS

Kyiv-based Rauta Group LLC, in cooperation with the Confederation of Builders of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Steel Construction Center, has developed a design of prefabricated mobile hospital, which can be constructed within two weeks.
The company said that a mobile hospital has enough space for accommodation of 72 patients and comfortable conditions for work of medical staff. The construction contains two autonomous zones with wards for patients in moderate and critical condition, as well as an intensive care unit, offices for the chief doctor and head nurse, rest rooms for the staff and other premises.

The hospital structure consists of prefabricated sandwich panels which meet all construction standards, sanitary requirements, safety regulations and energy efficiency standards. The design of the building provides a possibility to use renewable energy sources such as solar panels and heat pumps.
Technologies and materials which are highly resistant to viruses, bacterium and frequent sanitation are used in the structure.
The life-time cycle of such a building is more than 30 years.
General Manager of Rauta Group Andriy Ozeychuk said that the project is highly optimized for using ready-made solutions that can be mounted manually without use of wet processes and welding.
“If necessary, such a modular hospital can be easily disassembled and moved to another region, as well as expanded or converted for other purposes,” he said.
Ozeychuk also stressed that “the project of a domestic company should draw attention of the Health Ministry for systemic response to challenges of the pandemic, as well as for the elimination of negative influence of any epidemics and disasters on Ukrainian citizens in future.”
