EVRAZ supports construction of a hospital for treatment of infectious diseases in Novokuznetsk
EVRAZ allocated RUB 200 million to finance construction of a hospital for treatment of infectious diseases in Novokuznetsk and supplied steel products for the project via its trading arm, EVRAZ Metall Inprom (EMI).
From June to August, EMI’s Novokuznetsk branch delivered over 400 tonnes of structural and long steel products manufactured at EVRAZ ZSMK and EVRAZ NTMK: rebars, H-bars, L-bars, and U-bars. Another 400 tonnes are scheduled for delivery in September, mostly rebars.
The hospital will be completed before year-end thanks to the modern frame-and-panel technology, making construction several times faster. The hospital will comprise the main four-storeyed building and 10 administrative structures, totalling 27,800 sq m. The new medical facility will replace Municipal Hospital №8, currently profiled for infectious diseases.
Currently, second-storey framework is being assembled in the main building; structural elements and wall rebars are being put in place in the catering facility building.
‘We have contributed to construction of medical facilities to fight COVID-2019 across Russia and developed an efficient approach to handling such projects’, says Sergey Sintsov, EMI’s CEO. ‘Thanks to the wide range of products and highest quality standards, we can meet the needs of an entire project like this single-handed.’
‘EVRAZ ZSMK delivers A500SP rebars for the project: crescent-shaped in cross-section, the have a higher concrete adhesion rate than any other rolled rebars,’ says Aleksey Golovatenko, Director for Technology at EVRAZ ZSMK. ‘This type of rebars is used for reinforcing concrete structures in the harshest environments, including coastal and northern areas and seismic zones.’
