SUPERFRAME | Could Timber become the future for the Russian housing industry?

Last week we were in Moscow discussing with Igor Shuvalov (Deputy Prime Minister), Mikhail Men (Minister of Construction Industry) and Alexander Plutnik (Director General of Agency For Housing Mortgage Lending) on the future of the next standard of Russian housing.

With over 900 million m2 of housing to upgraded throughout Russia, this will be one of the largest redevelopments in history. We are arguing for wood as the primary material to be used, to bring about a new and unprecedented sustainable future to the Russian housing industry. We can create cheaper homes, at better quality and individualized spaces. Our proposal would be a substantial upgrade to the existing Russian market. We are now in second phase and hoping to make this become a reality!!
