The construction of bomb shelters in new housing can be regulated at the legislative level, said Elena Shulyak, leader of the Servant of the People party.
“Will there be new buildings with bomb shelters? We plan to resolve this issue at the legislative level, with prescribed norms and rules. I’m sure this should become one of the requirements of users of such housing and premises,” the people’s deputy wrote on Facebook.
According to Shulyak, the role of bomb shelters can also be performed by specially designed fortified underground parking lots.
The People’s Deputy recalled that the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading bill No. 7198, which provides for the restoration of housing destroyed by the occupiers at the expense of the state.
As reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky supported the idea of introducing a rule on mandatory shelters into state building codes.
Housing construction is resumed in Kyiv: the first project in the capital, where construction and installation work was resumed, was the New England residential complex.
According to the press service of the developer of the Royal House project, starting from April 5, 2022, the construction team in New England began work on the Lincoln house (5th stage of construction), work on other houses of the complex will gradually resume.
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.”
