The largest industrial organization in Brest is Stroytrest No. 8. It includes a plant of reinforced concrete products.
The plant of reinforced concrete products was withdrawn from Stroytrest No. 8 and transferred to Stroyindustria Republican Special Trust No. 23.
The resolution of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Belarus and the Council of Ministers of the BSSR "On the Improvement of the Organization and Management of Permanent Construction in the Republic" was adopted. Soon the topic was additionally developed in the Resolution of the Government of the Republic No. 260 "On the Creation of House-Building Industrial Complexes in the system of the Ministry of Industrial Construction of the BSSR" dated July 25, 1969.
According to the order of the Ministry of Industrial Construction of the BSSR No. 603 dated January 1, 1970, the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex was established in the city over the Bug. Boris Mikhailovich Bortsov was the first director of the industrial complex, before that he was the head of the Precast Concrete Plant.
47.4 thousand square meters of housing were commissioned.
According to the order of the Ministry of Industrial Construction of the BSSR No. 41 dated February 11, the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex was withdrawn from the structure of Stroymontazhindustria Industrial Complex and reassigned directly to the Ministry of Industrial Construction of the BSSR. Thus, the decisive role of the enterprise in the formation of the housing facilities of the city was recognized.
The modernization of the Precast Concrete Plant began, the existing technological equipment was modernized, and 8 more molding units were additionally manufactured and installed. The production capacity of the Precast Concrete Plant increased by 16 thousand cubic meters of prefabricated structures per year, which in equivalent meant an increase in the "output" of finished housing to 100 thousand square meters.
The manufacture of a new series of houses BR 464A was started, for the sake of which the modernization was carried out in 1974. The design solutions were based on bays with four apartments on the staircase. The bays could be used to assemble not only five-storeyed buildings but also nine- and twelve-storeyed buildings.
A subdivision for the installation of sanitary equipment installation was created in the enterprise.
At the end of the 1970s, the installation from transport vehicles began to be used on a daily basis at the facilities built by the plant. Thus, temporary warehouses of the main large-sized parts have practically disappeared at construction sites. This was achieved due to the development of relevant documentation, in particular, installation cards. With the introduction of cards, panel trailers brought parts to the sites in a strict technological sequence, in accordance with a pre-established schedule.
The Ministry of Industrial Construction of the BSSR made a fateful decision for the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex to build a second large-panel house-building plant. According to the order No. 291 dated September 17, 1982, another structure was formed within the enterprise – the directorate of the plant under construction.
The personnel of the plant for the first time overcame the milestone of 100 thousand square meters of total housing area, having commissioned 105,119 square meters. This has never been achieved by any organization in the history of Brest civil architecture.
Large-Panel House-Building Plant 2 with the capacity of 120 thousand square meters of the total area of residential buildings was put into operation for the production of houses of the 111-90 series on the basis of a single Belarusian catalog. Two-module external wall panels with an improved external heating system were used for the first time. The products of the new plant were first accepted by the Quality Control Department, after which they were presented to the State Quality Control.
In 1985 the staff of the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex put into operation more than 126 thousand square meters of the total area of residential buildings. During these years it was planned to build 2 more large-panel house-building plants in Baranovichi and Pinsk, each with a capacity of 120 thousand square meters of the total area of residential buildings, which would reduce the volume of cargo transportation of large-panel house-building structures and products which were delivered from the plants of Brest and, accordingly, the cost of construction in these cities. Unfortunately, with the collapse of the USSR, the fall in funding and, accordingly, the volume of housing construction, these plans were not destined to come true.
On behalf of the Central Committee of the CPSU, the Council of Ministers of the USSR, the Central Committee of the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League, the employees of the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex was awarded a commemorative sign "For High Efficiency and Quality of Work in the Eleventh Five-Year Plan" and was honored to be included to the All-Union Board of Honor of the All-Union Exhibition of Economic Achievements of the USSR (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy of the USSR).
By the order of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, a large group of leading and ordinary workers of the plant were awarded orders and medals for outstanding performance. The head of the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex Konstantin Mikhailovich Pechko awarded the Order of the October Revolution was among the awardees.
Large-Panel House-Building Plant 2 was gaining capacity, its presence in the industrial complex affected every month. Commissioning schedules for housing have rushed up. There was a breakthrough, which had not yet been observed: 165 thousand square meters!
In 1987 the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex achieved a truly historic result presenting to the city over the Bug, Pinsk and Baranovichi more than 215 thousand square meters of the total area of residential buildings. It was a brilliant victory.
By the resolution of the Council of Ministers of the BSSR No. 384 the Brest House-Building Industrial Complex was renamed into Brestzhilstroy Design and Industrial Construction Association of Industrial Housing Construction. This association was a single production complex, which included two large-panel house-building plants, Production and Processing Equipment Department, Mechanization Department 148, Project Management Department, specialized plumbing and electrical installation sites and six construction and installation areas.
Brestzhilstroy Design and Industrial Construction Association of Industrial Housing Construction has built 222,537 square meters of total turnkey residential area!
The millionth square meter was commissioned.
All construction and installation works (Brest, Pinsk, Baranovichi) of the enterprise put into operation 204,202 square meters of the total area of residential buildings.
By the resolution of the Supreme Council of the BSSR on the reorganization of the construction industry and the decree of the Council of Ministers of the BSSR No. 214, Brestzhilstroy Design and Industrial Construction Association of Industrial Housing Construction was reassigned to the Belbud Belarusian State Industrial Construction Corporation.
A total area of 138 thousand square meters of large-panel houses was commissioned. Difficulties with financing and the unrestrained growth of the cost of cement, metal, and other materials affected the enterprises much more than one might have expected. In general, the enterprises of the Ministry of Industrial Construction experienced a deep industrial decline.
Due to the official renaming, the words "Design and Industrial Construction Association of Industrial Housing Construction" disappeared from the name of the enterprise and it became simply Brestzhilstroy Association. Some time later by the decision of the Government of the Republic, the Association was withdrawn from Belbud Corporation, subordinating it to the newly created Ministry of Architecture and Construction.
In 1995, the General Director of Brestzhilstroy Association, Konstantin Mikhailovich Pechko, was transferred to the post of Deputy Chairman of the Brest Regional Executive Committee; Leonard Iosifovich Butskevich was appointed General Director of the association, who for many years held the position of Chief Engineer of the enterprise.
By the order of the Ministry of Architecture and Construction No. 493 dated November 3, 2000, Brestzhilstroy Association was renamed into Brestzhilstroy Republican Unitary Production and Construction Enterprise.
The enterprise tried to export services. The first facility on the territory of the Russian Federation was built for gas producers in Urengoy. The unit of the Purtazovskaya compressor plant with a rotational village. In short terms an administrative building, a maintenance block, etc. were erected, clearly fulfilling the terms of the contract and allowing timely commissioning of linear facilities of the Zapolyarnoye – Novy Urengoy gas pipeline.
Brestzhilstroy Republican Unitary Production and Construction Enterprise could not reach 10 thousand square meters of the total area of housing commissioned. In order to survive the enterprise was simultaneously engaged in the reconstruction of various buildings and sports facilities, built manor-type houses, participated in the construction of facilities in the countryside, gas stations, etc.
By the order of the President of the Republic of Belarus No. 93-rp dated April 1, 2003, Brestzhilstroy Republican Unitary Production and Construction Enterprise was transferred from republican ownership to municipal ownership of the Brest region and renamed into Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Production and Construction Enterprise (Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise).
The period 2005-2016 occupies a special place in the history of Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise. In this decade the enterprise retained all signs of a full-fledged association, made a leap into the future in terms of technical and economic side of its activities. Due to the correct assessment of the situation, definition of a development strategy and hard work of the entire team, it was possible to reach a completely different level of work. Changes took place in the conditions of a real struggle for orders, search for new partners, financing schemes, direct sales of separate facilities and finished apartments. In other words, in conditions of a mature market and growing competition.
Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise received the certificate of compliance of the quality management system with the requirements of ISO 9001 standard in the field of "Design and Construction of Buildings and Structures, Production of Structures and Products of Concrete and Reinforced Concrete".
By the resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus, amendments were made to the State Comprehensive Program for the Development of the Material and Technical Base of the Construction Industry for 2006-2010, according to which Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise had to start producing 150 thousand square meters of total area of residential buildings in 2011. Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise found itself in the most difficult position in relation to other house-building industrial complexes of the republic, where the reconstruction of production facilities started much earlier. The specialists of the enterprise comprehensively studied similar experience in the reconstruction of house-building industrial complexes and the choice of modern technologies for the manufacture of precast concrete in Mogilev, Bobruisk, Mozyr, Gomel, Soligorsk, Rostov-on-Don, St. Petersburg. Simultaneously with the increase in production capacity, our enterprise had to master the production of a new series of houses, since the old 90 series of large-panel houses no longer met modern requirements.
By order of Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise, Belpromproekt Unitary Enterprise developed a project “Reconstruction of the Large-Panel House-Building Plant of Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise" which presupposed the construction of 2 new molding spans with dimensions of 24 x 144 m. The pace of reconstruction of the large-panel house-building plant of Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise can be judged by the following dates.
The first truck from Germany with equipment manufactured by EBAWE arrived at the large-panel house-building plant.
In 2011 the production of concrete parts of the old 111-90 series of large-panel houses was completely discontinued and practically without stopping production Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise switched to the production of houses of the new series. In order to complete the construction of houses of the old series, a technological stock was created, which was placed in advance in warehouses for finished products and on-site warehouses.
In 2011 Brestzhilstroy held 45 percent of the Brest new housing market and successfully operated in the region. The total number of houses built for the villagers reached 357. In addition, the enterprise built a number of commercial and industrial facilities, for example, a fish sorting point in the village of Gusak (Malorita district).
An affiliated branch was established in the Republic of Poland.
Certificates of conformity of production control for 4 types of reinforced concrete products were received.
In 2020 Brestzhilstroy Utility Unitary Enterprise celebrated its 50th anniversary.
