The new building is being built by Serneke on behalf of Akademiska Hus. Demolition and construction work will cause disruptions in our work environment, but every effort is made to minimize these. It is difficult to anticipate any challenges that may arise. Scheduling will change over time, and estimated times for different work efforts may also change. Right now (December 2019), the plan looks like this:

  • January 16. The brick buildings are closed.
    It will no longer be possible to pass through the corridors. The J-house will only be accessible via the entrance on Vasagatan 3. An internal passage from the J-house's plan 4 to the A-house will be created. It will be completed in early March.
  • January 16. Internal demolition begins.
    Excavators and other equipment will be in place for work on dismantling the paving on the facade, etc. Inside, carving and sawing will take place. We can expect it to make noise both on the inside and outside. In connection with the internal demolition, Akademiska Hus takes care of the parts that can be reused. Akademiska Hus is part of a recycling project that will test solutions to increase reuse in the construction industry.
  • January 16. Plank is mounted around the construction site.
    Plank is mounted along Haga Kyrkogata and Vasagatan. The shielding may initially be made with fence instead of plank. Along Vasagatan, the shielding will go in front of the J-house and there will be a passage to the entrance.
  • Week 4 or 5 (January 20 - 31). The brick buildings are cut off from the J-house and the E-house.
    The work involves carving and sawing and it will be noisy. The work lasts about a week.
    Actions: Parts of the J-house and the E-house are very much affected. Each department, in cooperation with the project management, plans on how to best manage this.
  • Early February. Construction barracks are set up.
    Construction barracks are set up at Haga Kyrkogata, next to the Social Science Library.
  • Early February. External demolition begins.
    Serneke will enter from Vasagatan to Borggården. From there, they will work outward and save the surrounding walls for as long as possible. This will have a noise canceling effect. Demolition work will continue through May.
  • Preliminary May. Vasagatan is closed. NOTE! This has not been decided yet.
    Vasagatan will probably be closed off between Sprängkullsgatan and Haga Kyrkogata. Lilla Bergsgatan will be open for traffic in both directions. The shutdown is planned to remain until spring 2024. The garage will be available all the time.
  • May. A construction crane is placed on the site.
    A large construction crane will be placed just east of the J-house.
  • May. Construction barracks are set up in the courtyard.
    Barracks will be set up along the walkway in the courtyard. The walkway will be covered so that we can use it safely. These buildings also help to reduce the noise from the construction site.
  • Summer - possible start at the end of May/beginning of June. Excavation and piling.
    This is the most disruptive phase of the construction project, and is therefore scheduled to take place during the summer months. If the project’s assessment is that more time is needed, the message from the School is that it is better to start before the spring term is completely over, than that work is delayed over the start of the autumn term.
  • Autumn 2020 - summer 2024. Construction work.
    After working almost 30 meters into the ground, work begins on the part of the building that will be the connection to Station Haga. In the summer of 2022 they have reached ground level and are starting to build what will become our new building. In the summer of 2024 we move in and then we celebrate our new premises.
