"The reconstruction of historical appearance of the Convent and the realization of charity programmes began in 2006 with the programme "Renewal of the Saints Martha and Mary Convent of Mercy". Moscow best building and reconstruction organizations were engaged in reconstruction works" (according to "Moskovskaya perspektiva", September 16, 2008).
The ArtParquet company accomplished production and installation works (total area is 1200 m2). One of the difficulties was to carry out works in the possible shortest time. Doubtless, we managed it!
