Information letter #4 Heineken Hoek: work performed and basement floor
Dear businesses and residents,
In this fourth information letter, we would like to let you know about the current situation, what work will be carried out in the coming period, and how this might affect you.
· The tower crane has been assembled;
· The installations, which will be placed under the basement floor, have been prepared;
· The waste water wells have been poured.
Assembling the tower crane and activities in the coming period
On March 16, the 40-metre high tower crane of the Heineken Hoek was assembled. The terrain was surveyed beforehand with a 3D-scan. With a margin of a few centimetres, over and under the tram overhead wires, the tower crane finally arrived on the right place. Together with the municipality of Amsterdam, police, GVB and our traffic controllers, everything went smoothly. We look back on a very successful day.
Structural work phase
We are now working hard on the shell of the building. The pipeline trenches, lift shafts and basement floor will be poured at the begin of week 17, the week of April 25. As always, will do our utmost to keep disruption to a minimum. For example, large vehicles will load and unload inside the construction fences whenever possible.
We realise that we are guests in your area, and we will try to prevent any nuisance as much as possible and to keep it to a minimum.
