Topping out ceremony at Jasmin Vardimon - one of Kent’s largest cultural infrastructure projects
We were very pleased to welcome Councilors from KCC and Ashford Borough Council who joined representatives from Arts Council England and Jasmin Vardimon and her team to mark the topping out of the new building in Javelin Way, Ashford on site last week.
Construction work on the 13,530sq ft site started in January and rapid progress has been made with the building’s structural skeleton now complete.
The building will include space for the creation of the company’s touring productions and rehearsals, dedicated studios to accommodate the rapid growth of the company’s acclaimed educational programmes and community classes, plus incubator space for small creative businesses.
The primary creation space will also be available to hire by external creative companies, offering 19m x 22m studio space with 8 metres grid height, fully sprung dance floor and full lighting, sound and audio-visual rig. A new café and meeting rooms will also be available providing flexible spaces for the local community to get together.
