The institutes of JSC Research Center of Construction carry out R&D on prevention of emergency situations:
construction design engineering of buildings and structures
of all types, including buildings and structures erected in the areas with seismic rating of 7 to 9 points (except for nuclear power plants and hydraulic engineering structures); buildings and structures erected with consideration of complex geological and climatic conditions, as well as subject to dynamic loading, such as explosion and fire loading;
development of seismic and vibration isolation systems for buildings, structures, and equipment;
carrying out of engineering geological and topographical survey for construction; geotechnical monitoring;
design of bases, foundations, and underground structures for complex engineering geological, climatic, and geotechnical conditions; structures for protection of ground and surface water from pollution, as well as land development.
