VIS Group has increased the pace of construction of the Arctic Center in Yakutsk

The VIS Group continues to implement a public-private partnership project in the capital of Yakutia to create the largest cultural cluster in the Russian Far East, which will house the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center of Epic and Arts. The pace of construction has been increased, work at the site is now conducted around-the-clock, with over 200 people and 14 units of special equipment.

Over the past month, over 2,000 m3 of reinforced concrete structures have been fortified and concreted. The number of installed piles for the esplanade in front of the main entrance to the building has doubled - from 62 to 137. This is almost 50% of the total volume of the pile foundation. The esplanade being created on the shore of Lake Saysary will allow to raise the walking area above the permafrost soils and ensure its safety under conditions of extreme temperature changes that are typical for Yakutia.

Builders are preparing to begin work on façade structures. Double-glazed windows and aluminum façade substructures are being delivered to the site. At the same time, engineering preparations are underway for winter concreting and the installation of closed warm circuits, which will allow engineering work and the installation of internal partitions to be carried out during the cold season. A contract has been signed for the installation of a heat supply line and an individual heating point, the delivery of equipment for which is expected at the end of September. Deliveries of equipment for the mechanization of the Philharmonic Hall and theaters, which will be located in the Arctic center, have also begun. Its installation will begin after the building’s thermal circuit is closed.

The integrated complex of the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts is a multi-level building with an area of almost 33,000 m2 and a height of over 36 meters. The total capacity of the three auditoriums will be 1,530 people. In addition to the Philharmonic, the Olonkho Theater and the Sakha Academic Theater, the complex includes ritual, exhibition and rehearsal halls, a library, a restaurant and a café. The highlight of the building will be the usable roof with a modern recreation area.

In addition to constructing and fully equipping the building with both engineering and special stage equipment, VIS Group will carry out the landscaping of the adjacent territory on an area of over 15,000 m2. The shoreline will be reinforced here and a pedestrian embankment will be created. There is also a 177-space parking lot. As a result of the implementation of the PPP project, the shore of the lake where the cultural cluster is being built will be completely transformed and become a modern, landscaped public space.
