The paper focuses on technical analysis of spatial attice structures used in roofing of mechanical equipment rooms of hydroelectric power stations in Russia. The analysis reveals that spatial structures of “Markhi” type are used most frequently there and shows their advantages and disadvantages. The authors put forward their own solution for combining advantages of spatial spatial lattice roofing structures with those of truss frames with gusset plate units. The solution is aimed at enhancing the safety and reliability of hydraulic engineering constructions with no changes in accuracy requirements to their manufacturing. The authors also introduce their model of a spatial lattice roofing unit and give an account of its reliability and strength based on software system calculations.
