VIS Group resumes monolithic work on the construction of the Arctic Center in Yakutsk

VIS Group continues to implement a public-private partnership (PPP) project to create a cultural cluster comprising the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts in the capital of Yakutia. More than 230 people and 9 units of heavy equipment are engaged in the facility.

After the winter season, the work that could not be carried out at temperatures far below the freezing point, including monolithic structure concreting, were resumed. Over the past two weeks, over 360 m3 of concrete have been poured. This construction season 3,200 m3 of concrete are slated to be laid, and the installation of the monolithic building frame and esplanade are slated to be completed. The rough finishing of the interior spaces with the thermal circuit already closed also continues. Construction workers are carrying out plastering work, floor insulation, priming and waterproofing, as well as laying out partitions on the first three floors.

Landscaping of the cape near Lake Saysary has begun on the complex premises. This section of the coastline will be designed to hold cultural and ritual events; the lake is a sacred site for the Sakha people. The total improvement area will exceed 15,000 m2. The entire coastline will be reinforced and a pedestrian embankment, slated to become a new public space in Yakutsk, will be built.

The future building owners are eagerly awaiting the completion of construction. Employees of the G.M. Krivoshapko State Philharmonic of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), together with its General Director Tuyaara Pestryakova, visited the construction site and inspected the premises that will house the main and rehearsal halls, discussed the technical equipment and acoustic capabilities. When designing the building, special attention was heeded to acoustics; leading experts in this field, both domestic and foreign, were involved as consultants.

The complex of the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts is being built under a PPP agreement between the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and VIS Group. According to its terms, the holding acts as an investor and private partner. It is responsible for the project’s full life cycle - from financing, design and construction to outfitting it with all the necessary equipment. The agreement also provides for the technical operation of the building by the private partner until 2031, which is an undisputed advantage of the public-private partnership format and the best guarantee of the quality of work. After the cultural cluster is put into operation, this will be the first venue ever in Yakutsk that will match the top Russian and foreign concert halls in Russia in its technical parameters. The project is also unique in terms of construction conditions. The building with a total area of over 30,000 m2 is being erected on permafrost soils, in a seismically active zone. The project was developed taking into account all these factors with the necessary margin of safety.
