We have now scheduled new dates for the maintenance work on the eighth and ninth floors of the Linnaeusborg, which had to be temporarily postponed. Various jobs need to be carried out and the building’s ventilation system will be temporarily disconnected.
To minimize nuisance, we have scheduled the disconnections of the building ventilation system during a couple of evening hours and on two full days during the winter break.
Reason: disconnection of the central air extraction system for the entire Linnaeusborg (with the exception of building wing 5174, the greenhouses and the isotope lab in the basement of building wing 5172) making it unsafe for people to be in the building. The air supply system for building wing 5172 (bridge) will also be disconnected.

The air supply system will not be disconnected.
On Friday 20 November, along the Linnaeusborg road plates will be placed for a crane. On Monday 23 November materials will be hoisted up through the roof hatch. The same will take place on 4 January.
Several staff members have asked about the air quality in the building once the ventilation system has been disconnected. We can tell you that the air quality will be up to standard by the time that you enter the building in the morning. The building will be safe – as well as COVID-19 safe – to enter.
We are aware that the work on the ventilation system may cause some inconvenience. We are trying to keep any inconvenience to a minimum by planning the work in the evenings and during the winter break. We hope that you will understand and will cooperate with us.
An overview of the renovation work on the eighth and ninth floors is available on the Sequence & schedule webpage.
