House on Zavenyagin street was first to stand on piles

At the end of 1958, “the widely practiced arrangement of foundations in the form of separate pillars” was recognized as too laborious and not suitable for accelerated construction methods.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. This fact gave the green light to the transition to pile foundations – and named the exact objects to start with: residential buildings, kindergartens, shops and schools in the 30-38 quarter.

The number meant the courtyards between Zavenyagin street, which was a testing ground for the city planning innovations, and Leninsky prospect. The first house to “stand on piles” is considered to be house number 2 on Zavenyagin street – more precisely, its second building. It happened in 1959.

Six years later, pile foundations celebrated a kind of anniversary in Norilsk. On April 26, 1965, at the site of the future house under construction number 377, a brigade from Fundamentsroy hammered in a jubilee pile. A Norilsk nickel plate with copper numbers 30 000 was attached to it.

When this construction was completed, the building received the postal address Nansen street, 102. By the way, this is the largest numeral in the Norilsk housing stock.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told that the first sports facilities in Norilsk were built back in the 1940s.
