Construction workers have commissioned five of the 11 buildings planned for the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) being built on Russky Island, Vladivostok. The university buildings will be used during the 2012 APEC summit.
“The plan called for the commissioning of the first five FEFU buildings on February 28, 2012. But the builders are now three months ahead of the schedule. The other six buildings will be completed one by one but also ahead of the schedule,” Azar Agalarov of the Crocus construction company told journalists.
Following the APEC summit, to be held in Vladivostok in early September 2012, the buildings will be used for faculty and student housing.
A spokesman for the Primorye Territory’s administration told RIA Novosti that the floor area of the new university buildings, including academic, housing and auxiliary buildings, on Russky Island would total 900,000 square meters. The infrastructure will include a 210 hectare nature park. “The campus will include 5,500 rooms, each measuring 25 square meters, two academic buildings, and a multi-functional press center,” he said.
