Mott MacDonald is appointed design engineer on Russian shopping centre

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Megamag LLC as design engineer for the second phase of a £30 million retail centre development in Russia. The project is a 45,000 m2 extension of an existing shopping outlet located on the south side of Rostov-on-Don city in southern Russia.

Rostov-on-Don city, with a population of 1.3 million people, is the administrative center of Rostov Oblast and the Southern Federal District of Russia. Located on the Don River, just 46 km from the Sea of Azov, the city has experienced considerable economic growth in recent years and is now being transformed into a modern, industrial and technology-rich hub.

The project is in three phases. Mott MacDonald’s team of professionals will undertake the structural, electrical and mechanical design for phase two of the 36,000m2 development which will include a fashion mall, a food court, restaurants and entertainment facilities. This is intended to be a family oriented shopping and entertainment centre of exceptional quality on a prime site overlooked by the city centre. Mott MacDonald’s involvement will run from conception through to commencement of construction.

Stephen Gregson, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We are delighted to be appointed on this project which represents a significant step in expanding our design services in Russia. Mott MacDonald has an excellent track record in helping to deliver projects around the globe and it is great to be able to demonstrate our world class skills.”

He continued, “An interesting sustainability aspect of this project is the absorption chillers which will produce chilled water from heat that would normally be discharged to the atmosphere in the production of electricity. We are also using heat exchange air conditioning units which allows the site to use waste from room-heated air to heat the incoming ventilation air.”

The project is due for completion by mid 2011.
