Up to 1958, water supply and water disposal systems in the cities of Siberia and Far East were designed by Giprokommunvodokanal Moscow Institute. As the volume of the design and survey works in the country grew, and in order to make construction sites closer to designers, in 1959 the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing established the Novosibirsk Department of Giprokommunvodokanal Moscow Institute, which finally developed into Giprokommunvodokanal Siberian Institute.
Today, ОАО Sibgiprokommunvodokanal is a leading Russian institute for water supply and water disposal facilities design. Major facilities for water supply and sewage were built based on the Institute designs in many cities of Siberia, Far East and Central Russia, as well as some cities abroad: in Bulgaria, Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
The Institute has its own building in the centre of Novosibirsk, production capabilities, state-of-the-art machinery for engineering surveys, hi-tech laboratory for grounds testing, and digitized archive of all projects since 1959.
According to the evaluation of all-Russia business rating, in 2010 the Institute became a Top-100 design organization in Russia; it has all necessary certificates of self-regulating company for design works, certificates of compliance with the requirements of GOST R ISO 9001-2008, TUV NORD ISO 9001:2008 standards for quality management system.
