VIS Group will create a new public space in Yakutsk around the Arctic Center

A new public space and a point of attraction for both residents and tourists will appear in the capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) by the building of the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts, which is under construction. The large-scale project to create a unique international cultural cluster is being implemented on the principles of public-private partnership. VIS Group, the investor, has begun preparing the open area - an esplanade - near Lake Saysary, which will house a pedestrian recreational area.

In total, approximately 12,000 m2 around the future cultural complex are being transformed into a well-maintained public space. Walking areas with landscaping, lawns and flower beds will be created here. There is a visitor parking area for more than 150 cars. A new attraction will appear as a result of the implementation of the PPP project: a strolling and leisure area, which will become a desirable destination not only for residents, but also for tourists visiting the republic.

To date, work has been completed to prepare the base of the esplanade, 6,500 m3 of sand have been poured. The next stage will entail the immersion of 360 piles, which will allow to raise the area above the permafrost layer, protecting it from damage in case of soil thaw. A large complex of works will also be carried out to reinforce and improve the shore of Lake Saysary as part of the project. All activities are designed in strict accordance with water and environmental legislation and will ensure the protection of the water area from pollution, silting and water depletion.

The integrated architectural complex of the State Philharmonic Society and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts with the adjacent landscaped premises is a unique project for the northern latitudes, which has no analogues in Russia or the world. The large-scale building with a total area of almost 33,000 m2 is being built in permafrost conditions according to a project that takes into account all the regional features and utilizes the most modern technologies: from seismological stability to high-tech building outfitting. The VIS Group engaged experts from the "Reserve" Territorial Production Department, who were involved in project development for Zaryadye Moscow park.

This cultural complex will be one of the largest not only in the Russian Far East, but in all of Russia. For the first time ever, it will be possible to hold events of any level in Yakutia: from classical concerts and performances to complex theatrical productions, show programs and conferences.

The complex will integrate a philharmonic society, two theaters, and an exhibition and business event space under one roof. The total capacity of the auditoriums is 1500 seats. This center will include the national Olonkho theater and the academic theater of Sakha with a transformable stage.

The construction of the multi-level building continues according to schedule. For interior work at sub-zero temperatures, over 2,000 m2 of sandwich panels were installed, allowing to form a temporary thermal circuit. The construction of internal partitions of the first floors is slated to begin in the near future. From the beginning of March, work on the installation of a monolithic frame of the building will switch to a round-the-clock mode.
