Heating switched off

Work on the district heating network is being carried out between the A Building and the Kårallen Building on Campus Valla. The work means that the district heating will be switched off 12-14 June. Then the A, C and Kårallen Buildings will not have any hot water or heating. The system must be switched off as the new district heating piping is connected to the network. Questions?

Dialogues that became signposts
