Final PI59 demolition work starts

Demolition firm Bnext (formerly Beelen) is completing the final demolition work on the building at number 59, one of the oldest buildings in Zuidas. The work started with the removal of the plasterwork in the columns on all floors. This has now been completed. In the period up to mid-December, the concrete walls of the cellar floor will be removed and the screed floor demolished. Although noise barriers will be in place to reduce noise, residents can expect some disruption particularly as a result of the latter work. By no later than mid-December, all of the work will have been completed and the building will be ready to be transformed into a modern office building.

Removing concrete walls

At the bottom of the building, the concrete walls in the cellar are being removed and taken away, which will cause some noise nuisance. This work started on 24 October and will be completed on or around Friday, 19 November. The demolition work will happen on Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 16:00, possibly overrunning until no later than 19.00.

Demolishing the screed floor

Under the floor of the building, there is a screed floor that needs to be removed using a demolition hammer. It will be possible to hear and perhaps even feel this because of vibrations in the ground. This work started on 31 October and is also taking place on weekdays between 08:00 and 16:00, possibly overrunning until no later than 19.00. The work will last until no later than the second weekend of December, but may be completed sooner than that.

However, in order to keep noise nuisance to a minimum, noise barriers have been placed on the north, east and west side of the building.
