Keywords:construction organizations, production facilities, factors determining the capabilities of organizations, planning and management of their load.

In the article on the basis of the analysis of indicators of work of a construction complex it is revealed that one of the most important reasons of their some decrease in recent years is low use of production capacities of the construction organizations which according to Rosstat makes 60-80%. This situation is due to both the sharp growth of small inefficient organizations and the shortcomings in their workload, since the current system does not allow to link their production capacity with the planned amount of work with the proper degree of validity. The available proposals to solve this problem in the pre-reform period, both due to their lack of scientific validity, and the lack of a number of proposals due economic logic, also can not be used in full in solving this problem in modern conditions. All this indicates the complexity of the problem of quantitative assessment of the production capacity of the construction organization and the lack of adequate methods of its solution. The objectives of this study does not include clarification or addition of existing definitions of production capacity of the construction organization, and put a slightly different task – to develop and justify proposals for planning and management of loading of construction companies based on their production and technical, potential, etc real possibilities and primarily the volume of fixed assets and the number of workers (ie, two components of any production process), as well as taking into account factors determining the conditions of their implementation for the implementation of a value of the volume of work. Based on this situation, all factors are classified into two companies: factors determining the production capabilities of enterprises and factors characterizing the conditions of their implementation and on their basis on the set of small construction organizations of the CAO of the Russian Federation by multistage modeling method, a multi-factor model of their relationship is built. The parameters of the model, as well as the results of its testing for the analyzed set of organizations showed that the actual deviations from the calculated ones are within 4.1-5.3%, which is acceptable for both planning and analysis of their loading. On the basis of this model, a graphical nomogram is developed, which allows to determine the amount of WMS that can be performed by an organization based on its capabilities with minimal time, and also the coefficients that adjust the impact of technological progress on the planned load are calculated.

Keywords: low-rise housing construction, public-private partnership, investment, region.
The subject of the study is the development of low-rise housing construction. The goal is to develop methods of investment activity in low-rise housing construction in the aspect of development of public-private partnership projects. The article presents the forms, models and mechanisms for implementing public-private partnership projects in the construction complex. The degree of influence of various factors on the construction complex of the region was revealed, and a new scheme of interaction in low-rise construction projects based on the principles of public-private partnership was proposed. Interpretation of the obtained results is carried out in the form of figures, tables and formulas. The obtained research results served as the foundation for lowering the cost of construction and ensuring the availability of low-rise housing for certain categories of citizens in the mainstream of public-private partnership projects. The results of the study can be used in the implementation of regional strategic sectoral planning.

Keywords: housing issue, construction and housing and communal services, fund for construction and maintenance of affordable housing and housing services.

The subject of the study is the search of apartment question for the majority of the population in Russia. This problem is extremely acute always. State management and support is necessary to solve it. From the point of view of methodology, the research is based on methods of systemic, structural-functional, historical and comparative analysis, socio-economic planning and forecasting, as well as approaches implemented in the practice of making managerial decisions.

The authors of the article analyzed the socio-economic and market aspects connected with the situation of the housing stock in Russia, the implementation of major repairs, the state of emergency and dilapidated housing and the solvency of the population. As a result, they developed and proposed the mechanism for the formation of the Foundation for Construction and Maintenance of Affordable Housing (FCMAH). It will allow Russian citizens to solve their housing problems within 6-8 years. According to the author's opinion, the main source of financing for the acquisition of housing in the property should be the targeted personal accounts of working citizens, for which both employers and employees themselves will deduct from 15 to 20% of wages. These deductions should replace personal income tax at a rate of 13% for employees and 30% insurance premiums for employers. The means of personal accounts must be kept in the bank under %, by analogy with deposits under state control. Account holders will also be able to obtain the necessary information about them. It is absolutely real thanks to modern banking technologies.

As a result, employers will be reduced tax burden, the economic effect of which will be from 3 to 5% of GDP. And citizens can buy apartments in the property or improve their living conditions.

This mechanism should concern the majority of the population of the country with wages from 20 to 35 thousand rubles a month. Especially those who, could not afford to buy an apartment with the help of a mortgage mechanism. FCMAH will help for the majority of the country's population to solve the apartment question and they will be able to become full owners of their flats.

Keywords: the most effective option for building a site, the cost of land, a risk analysis, invested capital.

Unlike most developer projects on the development of free territories, projects of the development of built-up urban areas suppose the solution of questions aimed at the organization and resettlement of existing improvements that are recognized as subjects to demolition. The most effective variant of building the territory for which the Program of development of the built-up territories in Saint Petersburg works was found in work. The purpose of the study is to analyze the probable, legal, physically possible, economically feasible and financially feasible options for the use of the studied land, and the choice of the most effective use (construction), corresponding to the highest market value of land and the maximum productivity of the investment project aimed at the development of the built-up area. Results of multiple-factor risk analysis of the investment project for each option of building of the researched territory are considered in article, agreed value of the earth is also received. Because of the analysis carried out by the authors, an option has been chosen that provides for multistory residential development (from 9 floors and above), providing a greater utilization rate of the researched area. It is determined in the article that the inclusion of apartments in structure of a residential part (residential premises with the possibility of their use, both for the residence of the owner and for renting) helps to reduce the degree of uncertainty (risks) for the project as a whole. This decrease is due to lower volatility of apartment sales prices compared to the volatility of flat sales prices. The work reflects that the presence of additional costs associated with the resettlement of existing improvements and their subsequent dismantling, puts a burden on the Investor, which is reflected in the decline of the final return on invested capital. Additional costs of the Investor during the implementation of the MEO for the construction of the study area, aimed at measures for the resettlement of existing improvements and their subsequent dismantling would lead to a decrease in the rate of return on invested capital from the target value of 20.6% to 8.1% (decrease by 12.5) was found in work.

‘Technology gaps’ in Modern Construction Development: articulation of the issue

Urmancheyev Eldar M.,TheInvestorsGuardianLimited. Adress: 164 MertonRoad, Лондон, Великобритания, SW19 1EG; e-mail:

Keywords: construction development, investment, building information modelling, construction management, technology gap, production efficiency in construction.

The article focuses on the issue of lower productivity (in comparison with other types of production) in construction that negatively impacts the investment indicators of development projects. The author claims that this situation is caused by ‘technology gaps’ which he defines as missing or distorted technological links within the building lifecycle management chain. Such gaps are present throughout the chain from its earliest stages. He differentiates this concept from non-systematic management and planning errors that occur individually and mostly randomly, as well as from the concept of ‘technology gap’ that describes the relative superiority or inferiority of economic systems to one another. Apart from the definition of the concept the article formulates the prevalent causes of technology gaps. First of all, they include the absence or insufficiency of data gathering technology at the stage of initial planning that is further exacerbated by the bad practice whereby the design assignment is effectively prepared by the design office and not by the client. According to the research conducted by the company, this phenomenon is not specific to Russia and exists globally.The author further claims that technology gaps are often bridged by compensatory technologies that in most cases are excessively costly. Building information modelling (BIM) is one of the most indicative examples of such technologies: despite the relative complexity of its implementation it only compensates for the imperfections of the conventional cycle of planning and design that does not allow to produce error-free designs. The application of BIM as a compensatory technology however does not cover all existing technology gaps because information models are based upon data gathered in a way that lies beyond their scope. Therefore, the technology gap at the stage of preparatory research persists and, according to the empirical curve of costs of errors at different stages of the development cycle, remains the most ‘expensive’ in terms of its impact upon the value of the object.This takes the author to the main theoretical conclusion of the paper: today our knowledge buildings’ lifecycle should be revisited from the ground up. The application of expensive compensatory technologies (such as BIM), as excellent as they are in themselves, is not enough to bring about the leap in efficiency and investment returns in construction similar to those that we have been observing over the last several decades in the production of technologically advanced moveable goods.

Optimizing the construction period

Tikhonov IuriiPetrovich, assistant lecturer, Chair of Economics and Management in Construction, State University of Management, Moscow, Russia; e-mail:

Keywords: efficiency, investment project, time factor, time value of money, discounted cash flow, critical path method.

The article considers the problem of optimizing the construction duration, that is closely related to the freezing of capital investments. In world practice, the problem of optimizing the construction duration with target setting of minimizing the cost of construction is usually solved by the critical path method. However, the traditional version of this method does not take the whole life cycle of investment projects of construction into account, as well as the unequal nature of money over time. The article offers the author’s modification of the critical path method that is based on the minimum cost principle and takes the time factor into account. In the future, this optimization model can be improved by introducing additional factors into it, while its mathematical basis – by transferring it from a discrete to a continuous time form.

The relevance of the research topic is predetermined by the ever-increasing demands for an increase in regional social and economic growth, implemented in accordance with the standard of competition development in the subjects of the Russian Federation. The object of the research is a competitive environment in the market of passenger transportation by land transport of the Krasnodar Territory. The evaluation was carried out in a number of areas as an analysis of the number of entrepreneurs operating in the market under study, taking into account the organizational forms of enterprises; identification of barriers to entry to the market of passenger services; the assessment of the satisfaction of consumers with the quality of passenger transportation services by land transport; identification of the problems of development of the market of passenger transportation services for various types of land transport. The study used statistical methods, a system approach, a method of questioning. The survey was conducted using the method of quota sampling using standardized questionnaires for users of services in on-line mode. In order to solve the problems of the low level of competition between state carriers and non-state carriers on intermunicipal routes for regular passenger transport by land, it is necessary to create conditions for the development of competition in the market for passenger transportation services by ground transportation by reformatting the existing intermunicipal route network into a combination of routes with regulated and unregulated tariffs.
