Progress construction work LAB42

The realisation of LAB42 will take approximately two years. We provide proactive information about the activities through the website, the newsletter and news items. An up-to-date overview of the construction work can be read below:

Construction work LAB42

Recently, the excavation work on the basement of LAB42 was completed and the sheet piling could be removed. An overview of the work that will be carried out in the coming period is shown below.

Week 43 – 06
The last foundation works are currently in progress. At the moment we are mainly working on the intermediate beams, the foundation beams from one support to another. These activities will continue until the middle of February and we can report that no concerns or disruptions are anticipated. Construction is continuing completely as normal.

Week 07 – 28
In the middle of February, the structural work on LAB42 will start and the ground floor will be laid. A second tower crane, what is known as a crawler tower crane, will be assembled on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 February. This will soon appear on the construction site at the side of the new Matrix building. This activity is not expected to cause much disruption.

Building work at Matrix One
At Matrix One, a great deal of construction work has been carried out recently. The foundation work has begun and all the piles are now in the ground. The same applies to the sheet piling. The sheet piles could all be installed using the low-vibration ‘pressure method’.

Week 03 – 11
Until the beginning of March, work will take place to excavate the basement, pour the basement floor and install the basement walls. Excess noise and vibrations are not to be expected.
