A group of investors invited CLANCY ENGINEERING to design a concept project of a series of large-scale multifunctional zones of road services on M7 highway from Moscow to Ufa in part of design of rest areas. Total area is up to 10 hectares. All project works are according to the existing normative documents and possibility of stage-by-stage development of construction as required.

During the research of existing road service network on M7 highway from Moscow to Ufa we found a serious discrepancy of the offered services and needs of road users. Length of this federal road is nearly 1350km but the quantity with the enterprises of road services and rest areas leaves much to be desired.

CLANCY ENGINEERING developed concept of a rest area with the possibility of stage-by-stage construction of the complex according to all the existing norms, recommendations of design in the Russian Federation and international standards. Solutions for necessary internal and external engineering networks with the possibility of autonomous work or connection to already existing networks were developed. A full architectural concept of a multifunctional zone of road services (MFZ) was created.

During the development the experience from the research of a current situation in Europe was used. The best design solution and planning options were used with consideration for features of Russian road users and the market condition in the Russian Federation at the moment.

Multifunctional zone of road services provides the full package of services for road users in accordance with the list of requirements developed by State Company «Russian Highways»:

  • Parking for cars, trucks and buses;
  • Multi-fuel gas station;
  • WCs;
  • Recreational area for drivers and passengers;
  • Public catering objects;
  • Shop;
  • Tire shop;
  • Showers;
  • Laundry;
  • Medical aid station;
  • Garbage containers;

  • Motel (hotel)- when required.

Multifunctional zone of road services can additionally include:

  • Car wash;
  • Service station;
  • Stands (market) for retail trading;
  • Autocamping;
  • Children’s playground;
  • Helicopter pad;
  • Telecommunications service (Internet);
  • ATMs.

CLANCY ENGINEERING carries out functions of the general designer for multifunctional zones of road services (MFZ), develops brandbooks, concept stage, project and working documentation according to structural solutions, general plan, architectural concepts, MEP systems and networks, executes audits of project and working documentation, advisory services.
