Information about construction work week 42-45 (18 October - 12 November):

Should there be changes in the planning, we will publish information about this.

Please respect the demarcation of the work area!

General working hours are weekdays 07.00 - 22.30. The project is investigating whether it will be needed to start at 06.00 on weekdays and, if necessary, carry out certain work during weekends. We will come back with more information about these possible changes.

Se estimated disturbances in different parts of the School during the autumn below.

Week 42 (18 – 22 October):

  • Mounting of insulation on beams and jack posts, low level of noise
  • Excavation work, level 1, medium level of noise

Week 43 (25 – 29 October):

  • Excavation work, level 1, medium level of noise
  • Demolition of the remaining basement foundation, medium level of noise

Week 44 (1 – 5 November):

  • Excavation work, level 1, medium level of noise
  • Demolition of the remaining basement foundation, medium level of noise

Week 45 (8 – 12 November):

  • Excavation work, level 1, medium level of noise
  • Demolition of the remaining basement foundation, medium level of noise

Explanation of technical terms:

  • Stud drilling means that steel studs are drilled down inside the set sheet piles so that they do not slide off the rock but stand securely.
    Highe level of noise
  • Drilling of piles
    Drilled steel piles that are lined with steel sheets after excavation, to strengthen areas where the piles has not reached rock.
    High level of noise.
  • Shafting
    Medium level of noise
  • Mounting of beams and jack posts: The beams is welded to the sheet pile walls. A jack post (a steel post placed perpendicular to the sheet pile walls on opposite sides of the shaft) is mounted on this to prevent the sheet pile walls from falling inwards. When this is done, we excavate about 3 meters before we assemble a new beam level. There are beam levels down to the rock.
    Low level of noise.
  • Insulation of beams and jack posts: Insulation is installed to counteract rapid temperature changes in the steel structure.
    Low level of noise.
