Meaning of the names

Experimental nomenclatures took their names from the neighbourhood or city in whose territory the experiment was conducted. Nomenclatures developed after the experimental stage are denoted by signatures that carry certain information. The main elements that make up most signatures have the following meanings:

  • first letter - type of building (Б - residential buildings in a skeletonless large-panel system, О - dormitories in a skeletonless large-panel system)
  • second letter - areas for which the buildings are intended (с - for seismic areas, н - for non-seismic areas)
  • number in Roman numerals - maximum number of storeys
  • two-digit number in Arabic numerals - year of development
  • 2 letters - company-developer (Сф - "Sofproekt", Гл - "Glavproekt") or city for which the nomenclature is intended (Вн - Varna, Рс - Ruse, etc.)
