The completion date for Helix on the Wageningen campus has been delayed by two months.
The extra time is needed for the ventilation system for the 110 fume cupboards in the building. Because the pipes have turned out to be smaller than planned, the air flow is too noisy. ‘A soluble problem,’ says professor of Biochemistry Sacco de Vries, who is supervising the move on behalf of the departments involved. But the pipefitters need time to solve it. The delay means Helix will be ready on 1 July instead of 1 May. The extra time is not expected to mean extra costs.
