The Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU) was established in 1921. Before 1993 it was known as Moscow Institute of Civil Engineering. It is one of the oldest technical institutes of higher education and a leading civil engineering institute in Russia.
The university comprises 10 faculties and more than 50 departments, enabling students to do research and studies in the areas of design and construction. At the moment, there are more than 18,000 students enrolled at the university.
The university contains a newly constructed, modern indoor athletics hall, which is currently the second-biggest indoor sports complex in this vein in Moscow. Equipped with running tracks and multipurpose flooring areas, the venue is designed to host major national and international athletics competitions.
CONICA has been awarded the job to supply polyurethane-based sports flooring products and systems for this outstanding project. Altogether over 5,600 m² has been installed: For the track, the IAAF certified sandwich system CONIPUR SW was chosen with an overall area of 3,460 m². In addition, the two-layer EPDM system CONIPUR 2S was implemented in the run-off and warm-up areas.
Next to the running track area, a multipurpose field with a total area of 1,174 m² is located. In co-operation with the people in charge, a decision has been taken in favour of the area-elastic indoor sports flooring system CONIPUR AE, which is distinguished by its high functionality and protective function.
