The Gutenborg project will involve the design and construction of over 8m sq ft of flats, creating some 15,600 apartments.
As delivery partner to client and specialist company, SPb Renovation, Mace will handle project management, design, cost and construction management as well as carrying out technical supervision.
The massive scheme also includes three schools, five nurseries, a polyclinic and all supporting roads, transport and utilities infrastructure for a development of some 25 000 people.
London design and technology company Bryden Wood has developed a set of standardised set of components, similar to the chassis approach taken in the automotive industry.
These elements will be used by the various plot architects to produce site-specific detailed designs. The chassis approach will allow cost and programme to be dramatically reduced while maintaining the high levels of quality required for the scheme.
Mace director, Rob Ewen, said: “We are thrilled to have won such a challenging and significant project that will inspire change in the residential infrastructure of St Petersburg by delivering a better standard of both accommodation and living experience through the quality of design and construction performance. “
