House of Icelandic studies – earthwork

The house foundation for the House of Icelandic Studies is a basic earthwork construction, explosions and fillings. In addition it is drilled for pipes that lie underneath Suðurgötu and along University of Iceland.

The project is carried out according to BREEAM environmental standard. BREEAM standard involves systematic attempts to reduce the environmental impact of the project.

Project owner has to, among other things, make plans of use of energy resources, monitor the use and compare. Employees are encouraged to reduce energy consumption and / or look for ways to reduce the environmental impact e.g. with different methods etc. It is important that disclosure is to the neighbours and to keep in good relations with them, the main objective is that all disturbance is kept in minimum. With that in mind all explosions will be at a certain time of the day and neighbours will be notified, also will the neighbours be notified when explosions begin and when they are completed.

Reduction of dust pollution will be as much as possible with a certain way trucks are driven and tires cleaned before the cars go out in the surrounding streets. To make sure that the residents in nearby buildings are not exposed to unnecessary disturbance, construction will only be during weekdays.
