The demolition of building 5121 (the former workshop) will take longer. Due to unforeseen setbacks the demolition work is expected to be finished in the end of November. The last part has to
be removed is the thick basement floor, which has a reinforced concrete floor that is 90 cm thick. Despite the fact that the building will be disconnected from building 5118 to prevent contact noise, the removal of the basement floor will cause extra nuisance (such as noise and vibrations) for nearby offices, teaching and research rooms.
On Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 October extra nuisance can be expected. Lagemaat Sloopwerken BV will intensify the demolition work on those days.
The demolition of the former workshop is part of the preparation of the total building site for the new Feringa Building. Over the next half year work will be done in phases to remove the road next to the Nijenborgh building, (re)moving cabled and pipes as well as the old car park. Nuisance can not be avoided here.
The old car park closes as of Friday 9 November and then will be removed. Staff members can then use P1.
In a later stage, parking spaces of P1 will also be canceled, as the new building – after the shift of 80 metres to the south - will be realized partly on that location. Alternative parking facilities will be indicated in consultation with the UG and Hanze University of Applied Sciences. More information about this will follow.
If you have any questions about the construction work in relation to your teaching or research, please contact Klaas Stoelwinder, the Faculty building work project manager.
