RD Management told about building construction and occupancy stages, as well as about the role of the management company at the construction stage.
RD Management noted that it is efficient in terms of engineering consultancy to involve the management company at the stage of design specification preparation or designing. This allows taking into account the specific features and nuances that may emerge at the initial stage of facility operation.
Furthermore, the management company gives advice on the choice of equipment in terms of maintenance considering the cost of expendables and the availability of spare parts in the Russian market.
