The Branch of the Mariinsky Theater in Kemerovo Will Have an Open Terrace

Work has commenced on preparing the foundations for the future open-air terrace of the Mariinsky Theater. The works are conducted from the side of the Iskitimka river embankment.

Over 420 cubic meters of concrete were poured on an area of 560 square meters. Next, it will be equipped with a roofing pie (insulation, waterproofing, and roofing) to arrange the steps and viewing platforms. The outdoor walking area will pass under the floating cantilever of the future Mariinsky Theater branch.

The floor slab has a complex relief and is located on three floors, from the second to the fourth. Pouring will take place in several stages.
- Since the slab has a slope, the concrete grout used for pouring is thicker than for conventional slabs, said Yevgeny Yeremeev, a construction manager at the construction and erection department of STG Siberia.  

It should be reminded that the branch of the Mariinsky Theater in Kemerovo has two halls - for 950 and 300 seats.
The total height of the museum and theater complex will be 65 meters, and it will be the tallest building in Kuzbass. A restaurant will be located on the top floor, with a beautiful view of the city.
