To date, all deviations from the norms have been coordinated with an open and public procedure, which replaced the sections at the Ministry of Regional Development, which previously made decisions on whether or not to obtain a permit for a deviation, said in the comment of Property times portal, Andriy Ryzhykov, CEO and Managing Partner of DC Evolution.
And so, as Lev Partskhaladze put it, to minimize corruption in construction and increase people’s safety, the Minregion decided to introduce restrictions on deviations from state building standards. In the working version of the “red list” there were 200 points. As they said on the sidelines, there was a bargain on which ones to include and which to not. And then the world saw the final version, consisting of more than fifty points. Instead of hearing offers from the market to optimize countervailing measures, or even completely translate most of the DBNs and DSTs into advisory status, we received a “red list”, which is likely to be supplemented in the near future and the situation will get worse. All these norms are written in Soviet institutions, and then forced to build professional developers, architects, designers and engineers. It should not be so.
