Creating of the TEIS Project Bureau

The history of the Institute dates back to the first half of the XX century. At the turn of the 1920s – 1930s, industrialization was unfolded in the country. An urgent need for the formation of a centralized structure is appeared which is capable of solving urgent tasks to justify the construction of new railways and the technical re-equipment of existing railway lines.

In the structure of the All-Union design and survey association Soyuztransproekt NKPS, a sector of technical and economic surveys (54 people) is being created, which in 1938 was reorganized into the department of technical and economic surveys (TES).
