The construction of buildings has been focused on the industrialization of the construction and the obtaining of a minimal cost with a high construction speed. Secondary civil buildings are built according to a model project, where only the number of floors, sections and architectural decoration differ. As a rule, a number of buildings have a limited number of apartment plans, a common architectural style and the same construction technology.
