Work on the façade and roof at Bushuis/Oost-Indisch Huis will start on 17 August 2020. The specific location at which this work is to be carried out is difficult to access, so it is hard to say exactly when it will be completed. Work is currently expected to last until the week of 7 September 2020.

Work location - Bushuis/Oost-Indisch Huis, Kloveniersburgwal 48
Work location - Bushuis/Oost-Indisch Huis, Kloveniersburgwal 48

What will the work involve?

  • The replacement of roof tiles and repairs to the damage that wood rot has caused to the wooden boards and beams on which the roof tiles rest. The section of roof in question is located at the back of the building;
  • Repairs to the façade masonry. This will involve the regrouting of masonry on the façade at the back of the building (above Room D3.03);
  • Casings in the attic will be replaced (in Room D3.03).

How will local residents, students and staff be affected by the work?

Scaffolding erection and dismantling

Scaffolding will be erected in the Dwarsspinhuissteeg in the week of 17 August 2020. Scaffolding will also be erected on the roof and in front of the façade at the back of the building (see the image). As the scaffolding structure involved will be more complex than usual, it will take a whole working week to erect and secure. The materials and scaffolding required will be unloaded in the alley, which will continue to be accessible while the work is taking place. It is anticipated that the scaffolding will be dismantled in the week of 7 September 2020. This work will cause noise nuisance.

Work: façade, roof and casings

The replacement of casings, the removal of roof tiles, the repairs to the damage caused by wood rot and the work on the façade will all cause noise nuisance. For example, sawing, hammering and drilling and digging out old masonry.

Work will be carried out from 07.00 to 16.00.

Update working hours (added on August 10th): the contractor works half days on working days from 19 to 27 August. On these days, the working hours are from 07:00 to 11:00.

We have asked the contractor to take local residents, students and staff into consideration and keep the noise nuisance to a minimum.
