And that year in a row 2nd Sunday of August becomes a holiday, when the honor of representatives of the construction industry. However, today few remember how it appeared and what was timed. The first official celebration was held
Why this date? Connoisseurs of the history must be remembered that while the housing situation was of truly catastrophic. Hence the decision to accelerate the process and increase the volume of construction. The task was daunting — highlight every Soviet family separate living area by 1980. And began mass construction of cheap housing, it is small in size and stereotyped layout. And no frills designing — porticos, arches, add-ons are slowing down the construction process. As a result, the boom has arisen builder profession has managed to shift from the pedestal of the military.
The Soviet Union of that time was like a huge construction site. And the celebration of the scale were appropriate. Mass celebrations, solemn speeches, reports, specialized exhibitions. Builders meeting at which the next building goals were common regulations… Of course, there were the socialist competition — as a result of their construction projects were built, it is viable today.

And that in 1980 hosted the Olympics in Moscow — is not only an outstanding athlete, but also a construction event.

At every holiday has its own traditions — and the Builder's Day is no exception. For one of the main include commissioning.
