It should be noted that this year the scope of construction and repair works is noticeable in almost all subdivisions of Dalpolimetall. Currently, specialists are tightly engaged in the administrative and service building of the 2-nd Sovietsky mine, but will soon go to the Nikolayevsky mine and the central concentrated mill. Moreover, not the offices of the management are being repaired, but those premises where the workers start and finish their working shifts – cabins, showers, changing rooms, including guest changing rooms, lamprooms, tearooms, control rooms, laundries etc. It is necessary to note that the repair is not cosmetic, but rather capital. For example, floor tiles are changed to non-slip tiles, shower walls are laid out with other tiles – from floor to ceiling, and the ceilings in the rooms are suspended or stretched; new washing and dishwashing machines are purchased.
The scope of work is quite large, but the deadlines for execution are rigorous – the repair of the administrative and service building should be completed by the Day of Metallurgist.
The remote mines will also not be ignored – Korolevsky, Youzhny, Silinsky. They are also in the plan for this year, and certain works have already been carried out. For example, in early March, a new dining room was finished on the Youzhny – this is very important, because the miners of this mine work on a rotational basis.
The remoteness of the Silinsky site causes another problem – detachment from the world. Therefore, the main power engineer of Dalpolimetall, Evgeny Degtyarev, has put forward the idea of connecting a mine town to the Internet. Nowadays this idea is successfully realized by the forces of the communication site (site managers Alexey Zaitsev and Aleksander Martynenko). Satellite terminals are purchased, now they are being installed and adjusted. The Korolevsky mine is in near-term plans.
It also should be noted that the Capital Projects Department (the head of the department Sergey Antipin) deals not only with interiors and facades, but also with roofs – let’s say, in a finished products warehouse, the roof of which covers an area of 5000 square meters, – as well as landscaping. For example, the crew has "refreshed" the gates and fence of the park named after Pushkin, which overlook the Prospect 50 Years of October. The staircase was repaired and a pothole repair was carried out on the descent to the former machine-counting station, where now the Entry Control Section, the Human Resources Department, the Archives and other departments are located. The issue of placing the Honors Board is discussed – it is desirable to install it "in the aisles", in a crowded place, – let people see the portraits of those who by their work consolidate the position of Dalpolimetall.
