Located in the central Nørrebro district of Copenhagen, the construction takes place in a densely built up area consisting of residential and office buildings as well as noise-sensitive facilities such as a church, a hospital and the university itself.
During the planning stage, an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) identified the potential for noise impact. It mandated continuous noise monitoring during the construction phase in order to limit disruption to nearby residents and workers. The EIS stated that construction must follow the regulations from the municipality of Copenhagen. This requires that average noise levels must not exceed 70 dB(A) during daytime and 55 dB(A) during the night.
