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:

Weeks 43 – 07
All groundwork and foundation work – including the construction of a sprinkler basement, the pouring of floors and the construction of a sewerage system – will take place in the period up to and including February 2021. We are pleased to report that we are not expecting any increased nuisance or anything out of the ordinary in Weeks 43 – 07.

What is a sprinkler basement?
Everyone knows that a sprinkler system is an automatic fire extinguishing system, like the one in ASP904, which fights fires automatically, quickly and – most importantly – effectively. The sprinkler systems are connected to a sprinkler basement (or sprinkler box) for the purpose of extinguishing-water supply and drainage. Although we hope that we will never have to use this basement, it is reassuring to know that it is being built under LAB42.

Week 01 - 02
At the end of September/beginning of October 2020, the temporary sheet piles were erected to create the deeper sections (lift pit, grey water and sprinkler basin, etc.). This work will be completed at the end of 2020, resulting in the temporary sheet-pile wall being removed again. This will take place at the beginning of January. Heavy equipment is required for this, thus this construction work will not be entirely without nuisances.

Week 02 - 03
Between 11 and 22 January Unica Installatietechniek is working on the connections of the WKO pipes. This will not cause any additional nuisance, with the exception of the fact that they will also be working outside the building site for a moment. This means that pedestrians may have to go around the building site for a while and cannot pass between LAB42 and 904.

Week 08 - 28
At the end of February, the carcass construction work of LAB42 will start and the ground floor will be made. During this period a second tower crane will be built, a so-called crawler tower crane. This crane will be located on the construction site at the side of the new Matrix building. Much inconvenience is not to be expected from this work.
