The renovation of G Building
The renovation of G Building is planned to start in the summer of 2023. After it is completed Department of Sociology will move back into the building, together with the Department of Gender Studies.
New ventilation and more workplaces
G Building will undergo the necessary changes to accommodate additional workplaces. The ventilation system is already on the verge of being undersized and the data network needs to be replaced. The faculty is also taking the opportunity to complete the eastern side of floor 4, which was not refurbished in the same way as the rest of the building during the 2006 renovation.
Timescale and evacuation
According to the current schedule (dated 23 February 2022), the renovation will take approximately one year from summer 2023.
During the renovation, the Department of Sociology will move to temporary premises in Allhelgonaskolan, Bredgatan 26.
After the renovation, the Department of Sociology will move back to G Building, together with the Department of Gender Studies.
The process leading up to the renovation
In 2020, preliminary study sketches were circulated and in 2021, programme documents were circulated internally within the faculty to the Campus Paradis project steering group, the Department of Gender Studies and the Department of Sociology.
In 2022, the project planning is in a combined system and construction documentation phase. In parallel with the system and construction planning, plans for the interior are also underway.
The project team is in continuous dialogue with working groups at the Department of Sociology and the Department of Gender Studies.
