Actions for limiting disturbances

It is not possible to build a new house without affecting the ongoing operations. The work at the School must follow the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's guidelines for noise, NFS 2004:15 (link in Swedish). In most parts of the School, disturbance impact is judged to be low. The J-house and the part of the E-house which is closest to the building area will be more affected. Most affected are the parts of the School that are closest to the construction site. The project management and the Heads of departments work together on how this should be handled.

  • Serneke will use a method to get shaft masses out of the site that makes as little noise as possible. The shaft masses are loaded on flatbeds at the bottom of the pit. These are then lifted and loaded onto trucks. Trucks will leave the School every fifteen minutes.
  • School accessibility will be adequate during construction. Initially, however, it is not possible to go indoors from the J-house to the other houses, but this will be addressed by a connection on level 4, between the A and J-houses (expected to be completed in early March).
  • When the brick buildings are demolished, we lose a number of lecture halls. This is offset by more efficient use of other halls at the School. Investigations show that our utilization of lecture halls is only around 40% today. The first few weeks of the semester are the pressure on the halls, especially the big ones, the biggest, but there will be room for all lectures and seminars. In order to facilitate planning, new principles for booking of the rooms have been established.
  • Every two weeks, information letters will be sent to all staff. The letter tells us what will happen in the near future, and in the slightly longer term. Students are informed by e-mail a few times during the semester, and when it is needed. The Student Union also contributes to passing on building information to the students. The information is also published on the web [link], accessible to everyone. Information meetings will be held, probably for both staff and students.
  • Campus service informs Serneke of extraordinary bookings of the premises, such as events and fairs, and Serneke takes these into account, when possible, when planning their work.
  • It is important that we conduct active and proactive health and safety work, in which our work environment representatives have an important role to play. At faculty level, this work will be coordinated within the framework of the local work environment committee, LAMK.
  • The work environment representatives for the students are the Head of Education within the Student Union (primary) or the President (secondary).
