Currently the next-generation km3-scale neutrino telescope Baikal-GVD is under construction in Lake Baikal. Assembling of Gigaton Volume Detector (GVD) is highly dependent on an ice cover on Lake Baikal. This cover, used as stable platform, gives a lot of benefits for GVD deployment, but makes a strict timeline constraints. So, assembling procedures are tuned to minimize deployment time and man-hours. Discussion of these procedures is the matter of this presentation.
