The forum was organized by the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Korea in the city of Tyumen – Igor Samkaev, the Government of the Tyumen region, the administration of the city of Tyumen and the Tyumen Industrial University.
Participants of the event got acquainted with the experience of building design in the CIS countries using Korean technologies, learned about the peculiarities of urban development in South Korean cities, including the use of smart technologies in the urban ecosystem, and also discussed areas and prospects for digitalization of the construction industry of the Tyumen region. In addition to the main agenda of the forum, Korean experts – renowned professors in the architecture field – will lecture at the Institute of Architecture and Design of the Tyumen Industrial University.
Over the past decade, the Republic of Korea has become one of the most urbanized countries in the world. Original forms and new materials of modern Korean architecture are astonishing. For leading Korean companies, it is typical to use modern computer technologies in construction; it makes the buildings as reliable and durable as possible. Korean manufacturers strive to make the construction process as high-quality, efficient, simple, fast and automated as possible.
“Interest of Korean colleagues in the Tyumen region is not accidental. The region ranks between top-5 Russian regions with high rate of commissioning of residential real estate. In 2019, the region plans to build about 1.6 million square meters of housing,” says the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Korea in the city of Tyumen, Igor Samkaev. “South Korea, in its turn, has become one of the five leading countries in the world in the field of abroad construction. I believe that the exchange of experience will benefit the development of the construction industry in the region and will strengthen international cooperation between the Tyumen region and the Republic of Korea.”
