At the pre-operation stage the contract provides support services for installation and commissioning of engineering systems and equipment, preparation of maintenance documentation and other actions to prepare the shopping mall for start-up and further maintenance.

After the facility has been launched Apleona HSG will provide integrated maintenance and technical support of engineering systems and equipment of the facility, including such crucial ones as fire safety systems and elevator and escalator equipment. In addition Apleona HSG will manage the following infrastructural services: professional cleaning of the facility interior, territory and parking area; cleaning the roof from snow, leaves and garbage; cleaning of glass facades and glass constructions; waste removal and utilization; sanitary and epidemiological maintenance (disinsection and deratization), etc.

Paveletskaya Plaza Shopping Mall is an architectural complex, which combines three underground floors (shopping galleries on 1 and 2 levels, and also a supermarket, service operators and parking on 3 level) with total area of 72 000 square meters, ground landscape park of 27 500 square meters, and also rest areas. A new shopping mall is located at Paveletskiy railway station square. The shopping mall is scheduled to open in late fall 2021. The architecture and design of the project was created by the international bureau 5+Design, which has implemented large-scale projects all over the world. The general contractor of the construction is Turkish company Ant Yapi.

Mall Management Group (MMG) is focused on development and construction of high quality commercial real estate, as well as supports the full life cycle of the projects. MMG is part of the Plaza B.V. group, controlled by Sergey Gordeev, and manages a commercial real estate portfolio.

Victor Efremov, CEO, Apleona HSG has commented on the new project in company's portfolio: "Paveletskaya Plaza is undoubtedly one of the key projects for our company. Moreover, the facility itself is extremely important for Moscow and its citizens. For a long time the square in front of Paveletskaya railway station was surrounded by a blind fence, and nothing happened behind it. The city has been waiting for a long time for the transformation of the abandoned site, and finally it happened with the participation of our partner Mall Management Group. We're honored to work with MMG, and the opportunity to undertake such a unique facility as Paveletskaya Plaza will certainly be a source of great professional pride for us. We hope that the services provision at this venue will be the beginning of a long and prosperous cooperation between our companies".

Salikh Usmanov, Technical Director, Mall Management Group: "We are very glad to entrust the operation of such a unique and architecturally challenging facility as Paveletskaya Plaza to a company with international experience. Besides basic maintenance of the building, Apleona HSG will be responsible for the maintenance of the landscape park above Paveletskaya Plaza, which is our trademark and reason of pride. This transformation put an end to the long construction site on the Sadovoe Ring Road, well-known to all Muscovites.
Due to the underground construction the rules for the exploitation of Paveletskaya Plaza are much more serious than for the on-ground facilities, and we believe that the proven expertise of our colleagues from Apleona HSG will make this process as smooth and efficient as possible".
