The UvA has taken various measures in order to reduce inconvenience for local residents and help ensure optimal connections with the surrounding area.
The UvA has reached agreements with the contractor on:
The UvA is committed to good relationships with its surrounding environment and has appointed an area manager. The area manager is responsible for safeguarding the interests of all parties involved. This includes the interests of the project and those of local residents, students and employees. The area manager will work to identify the activities' impact on the environment. The area manager will regularly consult with the various other stakeholders, such as local institutions, the municipality and residents' associations.
We will hold a special consultation hour every Thursday afternoon to answer any questions with regard to the construction activities. The area manager will be present in order to answer questions.
In an effort to accommodate self-employed workers without employees, the UvA will make workspaces available to them, offering them the (temporary) opportunity to work in a peaceful environment without construction noise.
