Details evolve

Less than four months to completion and the pace of work still grows faster. Winter chill has not yet tightened its grip so also exterior work can be performed in quite good conditions. External facing is still in progress (glass walls, sheet metal works, boarding), stone works (paving and wall tiling) as well as landscaping. All contractors proceed rapidly with interior work. The house conceals many small details, which not only need to be designed carefully, but also require carrying out of a model work that the architects and client first approve. The image above shows model works related to stone flooring, stairs, board cladding and stone paving. One week before Christmas there were 98 workers on the site. Images: Juha Roponen

The main entrance invites you in

The entrance of the building starts to take its form towards the end of November. This sight is also familiar in the new logo of the museums. The foundation work of the stone paving at entrance is in progress. The installation of the paving stones starts within few days. The tower crane was disassembled on 8 November. Finishing work is in progress in the entire building: for instance some partition walls have been erected. The work in the basement has progressed furthest, for there, also some surfaces have already been completed. The entire glulam beam frame and its facade columns have been erected, and external facing is in progress. Materials used in the external facing are wood, glass, sheetmetal and stone. Landscaping work concentrates on areas further away from the building. About 70 people work daily on the site. Image: Juha Roponen

Walls in visual rhyme

At the end of October the appearance of Gösta’s pavilion is starting to take more visible shape as over half of the glulam beams i.e. “mullions” have been put to place. After their installation the remaining roof work can be completed. The heating is on throughout the building and finishing casting of the floor areas are in good progress, also electrical and ventilation installation is in good speed. The recent landmark, tower crane, will disappear from the work site by the end of November. Landscaping work has been begun with the parking areas and paths at the shore-side. At present, about 65 persons work for several contractors on the site. Image: Juha Roponen

Window installation on progress

At the end of September Gösta's contruction progresses with installation of quite a few windows. In the basement the heating is already on, and in other parts of the building by mid-October. The floor surface casting is going on in office, restaurant and exhibition spaces. Elsewhere the partitions are being masoned. On the outside, the roofing is already nearly completed. The foundation of the supporting wall has been casted. The installation of mullions will be started around the end of September. In the first phase of the landscaping the aim is to renovate the areas further away from the building. In all 55 persons are working at the site. Image: Juha Roponen

A tent protects the roof makers

At the end of August the work at Gösta extension is done everywhere from the basement to the roof. The new museum building has been covered with a tent under which the roof is constructed. The framework of the large window surfaces are installed at the same time. The supporting structure of the corridor connecting the reception area to the rest of the museum has been put in its position. In the basement the finishing and painting of the inner walls is in progress. The ventilation units are installed in the technical space. Image: Juha Roponen
