Painting BG1- view

Work schedule

The work will take place in two phases. First, the part on the Oude Turfmarkt side and part of the building on Turfdraagsterpad will be painted, followed by the remaining part of the building on Turfdraagsterpad. See the illustration. Scaffolding will be erected and dismantled for the painting activities. This may cause noise nuisance. 

Dates for erecting and dismantling scaffolding:

  • 23–26 March: Erecting scaffolding on the Oude Turfmarkt side and along a section of the façade on Turfdraagsterpad. See the red line in the illustration.
  • 14–19 April: Dismantling scaffolding on the above sides.
  • 16–21 April: Erecting scaffolding near the façade on the other Turfdraagsterpad section. See the blue line in the illustration.
  • 11–14 May: Dismantling scaffolding (blue line)

The work depends on the weather, so the work schedule may change. If this is the case, an update will be posted in this news item. 

Working day working hours are from 07:30 to 16:00.

The painting requires sanding to be carried out first. This will cause some noise nuisance. In order to limit this as much as possible, sanding will take place from 07:30 until 10:00. Occasionally, sanding may take place outside these hours, but this will be kept to a minimum and should only be for a short while. 

Turfdraagsterpad will remain accessible during the work.
