Start construction work The Gustav and The George

What will happen and how will you be affected?

BAM Wonen recently started setting up the construction area. A site office was installed and a parking area constructed on De Boelelaan. The construction pit will be levelled at the end of November, in order to drive in the steel sheet piling using a crane (a low-noise and vibration-free method). Sometimes, the sheet piling cannot be brought to depth completely using this method.

In this case it may be necessary to drive in the sheet piling completely using vibration. This leads to slightly more noise nuisance, but generally speaking this doesn’t last very long. During the construction of The Gustav and The George the foundation piles are screwed in. No work is done during the Christmas holidays. From 8 January 2018 we will start screwing in the piles. This is also a low-noise and vibration-free construction method, and we expect little or no nuisance. In mid-February we will start installing the drainage and excavating the construction pit. The excavated soil is removed from the area using trucks.
