In 1994 Kirilenko, along with Sergei Polonsky founded Stroymontazh in St. Petersburg Corporation. First, they took small contracts for finishing work for which migrant workers had been hired from Ukraine, and then engaged in property development.

In 1995 construction began on the first object; that was a residential building in Vsevolozhsk district of Leningrad region. The company developed rapidly, despite the fact that Kirilenko and Polonsky started out as a unknown 22-year young people.Perhaps many victories on the construction tenders were due to the fact that they had been noticed by someone in the administration and used it as a cover for their business. There have been rumors about the friendship of Kirilenko and Sergei Matvienko, son of the governor of St. Petersburg Valentina Matvienko, as well as the connections with criminal circles.

In 2000, the branch of Stroymontazh was opened in Moscow in which 50% of the shares were owned by Kirilenko and Polonsky.

In 2001, the company Stroymontazh and «Stroykontinent XXI Century» challenged each other's right to build residential complex " Gold keys-2 " in Moscow. In August 2000, a contract was concluded on complex construction between the client of the construction company "Obnovlenie plus" and "Stroykontinent XXI Century", a subsidiary of the St. Petersburg company "RosglavmaterialyЭ (RGM). "Stroykontinent" was supposed to get 80% of the housing. But Stroykontinet, started the works and failed to pay money for the lease of the site. There was a threat of termination. Therefore, in 2001 it was decided to conclude an agreement with constructor Stroymontazh. But the old contract at that time had not terminated and their work had not been paid. From May to August 2001 "Stroykontinent filed several lawsuits in court, having achieved the arrest and a ban on construction work at the site. But in October, the court lifted the arrest and arrested the RGM funds to the amount at which Stroymontazh estimated their losses associated with downtime. At the moment RGM had serious problems, and the company offered Stroymontazh all property of ZAO «Stroykontinent XXI Century". But Kirilenko disagreed, deciding to still obtain compensation for damages through the court.

At the end of the year the company Stroymontazh and Stroykontinent XXI Century announced the settlement of the conflict. Kirilenko said that he waives all the claims and is ready to compensate the losses of Stroykontinent XXI Century", handed him his assets.Leadership of "Stroykontinent" at that time was on the run.

In early 2006, Kirilenko and Polonsky shared the business: Kirilenko was the owner of Stroymontazh where Polonsky owned 10%, and Polonsky registered in Moscow the new name of the firm Mirax Group, in which 10% belonged to Kirilenko. Now they had different firms.

In 2008 Stroymontazh took 10% of the urban construction market, after which the company immediately started having problems.

Back in 2006-2007, Stroymontazh delayed the commissioning of residential buildings on one or two years. The debts to interest-holders and creditors grew up .With the onset of the crisis in Russia, housing prices began to fall. Lenders began to worry about debt repayment. At this time a strange request appeared from the Cyprus offshore company "Kosmogrup Vorlvayd Limited to acquire 93.83% of OOO Stroymontazh Corporation, parent company of the group. In Stroymontazh excused with planned restructuring, but it looked like attempting to display the company's assets.

In December 2008, Stroymontazh let a technical default on the bonds happen by paying creditors a with a week delay. The company was filed claims on early collection of debt from counterparties. Kirilenko admitted that at that time the company's debts to the creditor banks - Sberbank, Bank Saint Petersburg ", Rosbank Baltic Bank and Alpha Bank - accounted for 6.1 billion rubles. Debts owed to the co-investors were estimated at 17 billion rubles.

In March 2009, they reported about the mass layoffs in Stroymontazh - 50 stayed out of 500 employees. In June, the company failed to timely pay a coupon of its bonds.

Baltic Bank made an unprecedented proposal to creditors and subcontractors of Stroymontazh: it promised a reward for additional information on retired assets of Kirilenko.The bank was even ready to share this information for free with other lenders.

Attention of Baltic Bank was also drawn by two transactions carried out by Stroymontazh: in December 2008 and February 2009, the company sold two land plots on Robespierre Shore front, and on Vyazov street at very low prices. The new owners were "First Project Company" and "Investhaus”. Equity holders were forced to restructure the contract for "the First Project Company."
