The Arctic Library digital platform, which contains the most complete database on construction and improvement in the Arctic, in particular, architectural projects for permafrost zones and information about the main market players, has begun working. This was announced to TASS on Wednesday by Maxim Dankin, deputy director for regional development of the information and analytical center of the State Commission for the Development of the Arctic.
"The Arctic Library has opened. This is an online platform that brings together Russian and international approaches, experience in working with the urban and settlement environment of the Arctic and northern territories, as well as new technological solutions developed for the North into a single knowledge base," the agency's interlocutor said.
Users can get acquainted on the platform with a database of architectural and planning solutions, examples of the improvement of the environment of settlements in the Arctic and northern regions of Russia and the world, as well as new technologies for construction and improvement, for example, frost-resistant materials.
For convenience, filters have been developed by directions, terms and degree of implementation, while completed projects can be seen on the online map.
In addition, the Arctic Library will contain all documents, development strategies, regulations, monographs and articles about the development of cities in the Arctic, as well as information about companies and developers involved in this work. "The growing database of key players in the Arctic market simplifies the problem of finding contractors for the administrations of settlements," Dankin said.
At the end of 2021, at the Arctic: Today and the Future forum, the creation of the platform was announced by the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexei Chekunkov. According to him, this project will help create a comfortable urban environment in the Arctic settlements.
