The latest revision of national standards, aimed at the thermal performance of structures, conformed to internationally applicable standards of energy-efficient construction, low-energy construction, ultra energy construction, and nearly zero-energy construction. This paper analyzes the requirements of thermal revised standards in the context of the construction of apartment buildings. The mentioned required standards involve improved and more detailed project planning, leading to the comprehensive realization of building projects as they are intended. Currently, in addition to traditional ways of building, there is an increasing prevalence of modern methods of construction. MMC are using the potential of prefabricated parts of structures. In this article, the aforementioned methods will be compared from an energy conservation and economic point of view.
