History Project institute №1 - the country's history


In 1948, Project Development Institute No. 1 began double-stage work - designing facilities to protect Leningrad from flooding and a metal frame for the Leningradskaya Hotel in Moscow, one the first Soviet skyscrapers. The institute carried out a sweeping scope of both survey and design work in terms of creating facilities to protect Leningrad from flooding. Hydro-technicians developed an integral diagram, arranged a hydrological expedition for site survey activities, established a specialized research-and-development sector to manage scientific and experimental approaches. The project was implemented by Stalin’s direct order. Work was suspended due to lack of financing. Design approaches were handed to Hydroproject in 1975 for further use. 



More than 5,000 facilities in 20 countries
