German!

I have a question about the phrase "bis zum Jahr"

Does it mean both: "up until the year 2011"
and "by the year 2011"

If it means both, how does one determine what the sentence actually means?

I want to say "by the year 1935, all technological development was being coordinated by the Central Design Office"

I wrote "Bis zum Jahr 1935 wurde technologische Entwicklung von dem Zentrale Konstruktionsbüro koordiniert."

Can anyone help with this!?

Thank you :)
