Construction works: corridor basement i04/BFB

Dear all, The Construction and Maintenance Team have informed us that from tomorrow Tuesday May 6th onward there will be ongoing construction work taking place in the basement of the Bertalanffy Foundation Building (room i04.UG.015). The previous pre-clinical facility -room will be converted into a new microscopy room for the BioImaging Facility.  Please be informed that the construction work will last a few weeks. ! During this time it is rather likely that some noise-producing construction works will be carried out. ! A dust-curtain will be installed in front of room i04.UG.015: please also make use of the sticky mats to reduce the Read More …
