Ankudinov park: 27 high-rise residential blocks with KM Precast concrete panels
One of KM Precast’s biggest clients is KM Ankudinov park, also part Karkas Monolit group. The massive Ankudinov park housing project consists of 12 500 apartments in 27 high-rise residential blocks, ranging from 19 to 35 story high buildings.
Kadir Bag, Main Coordinating Officer at Karkas Monolit Construction Company, says the efficiency of the houses is by far better than any other houses in the area. “They are well-insulated and well-ventilated. Our clients are happy so we are happy”.
He stresses that the opening of the KM Precast factory greatly expedited the construction of Ankudinov park.
“The factory has allowed us to independently and profitably manufacture our unique product for our construction sites. Thanks to KM Precast, we have streamlined the Ankudinov park project without any loss in quality. Over the past 2 years, we have delivered more than 2000 move-in ready apartments, and we plan to complete the project within the next 6 years”, he notes.
Expansions on the horizon
In the near future, KM Precast’s plans include installing the Elematic Acotec line to manufacture light non-lifting partitions. This line covers the entire production process, from concrete mixing to product storage. Acotec panels are extruded from lightweight concrete, which makes them light and easy to install. The panels are 600 mm wide and floor-to-ceiling high. One panel can be installed manually by two people, cutting both construction schedules and costs.
To support the expansion plans, KM Precast has recently started working with PJSC PIK, a large Russian construction company and supplier of facade panels and internal walls.
