Newsletter VU Research Building #5

Dear businesses and residents,

You will undoubtedly have noticed that the construction activities for the new Research Building are running very smoothly. The building shell phase has been completed, the facade is almost closed and the finishing activities have now commenced. We’ll be starting on the activities in the public area from 19th September and these may cause some level of nuisance. This letter will provide you with more detailed information about these activities and how this may affect you.

Construction of HCS facilities
We will soon, from 19th September, start realising the heat and cold storage (HCS) source for the new Research Building in the public area.

The work will be carried out for the O|2 Lab building on the De Boelelaan side.

We’ll be setting up a work area in which pedestrians and cyclists will be temporarily diverted to allow us to carry out this work.

  • Cyclists from 19th September to 7th October 2022: Diversion via the south side of the De Boelelaan throughout this period.
  • Pedestrians from 19th September to 4th November 2022: Detour behind the O|2 Lab building.

The entrance to the O|2 Lab building will remain accessible at all times.
