Construction Work on New Laboratories
Below we will give a short overview of the
construction work involved in establishing new laboratories to
accommodate the 400 WB and 700 WB Ultrashielded Bruker magnets and a
new wet lab.
|A temporary hole in the outside wall has
been made to ease the access to the laboratories
while the construction work is going on.
||And a dust-wall was set up in the corridor
inside. This was to protect the laser labs on
the other side of the corridor from dust and
noise caused by the construction work.|
|The new laboratory originally was three
separate rooms, but rapidly the walls between
them were broken down.
||The hole for the pit has now been made. This
lasted less than 4 hours to dig the hole of size
6 by 4 meters. In the middle of the picture is
the large saw used to remove the concrete wall
on the left side of the pit.|
|The wall to the corridor has been partly
down to allow installation of a larger door
(which allows the 700 WB magnet to go through).
This requires some additional stabilization of
||The workers are now making the wood shell
for the concrete walls of the pit.|
|And after having found the appropriate -
non-magnetic - stainless steel for the
reinforcement, the walls are now ready to be
