Safe to live in the student apartments at Simonsland

There is no reason for concern. This is the message from AB Bostäder to the residents living in the student apartments at Simonsland, where part of the wall below the terrace collapsed last night.

However, the foundation of the apartment building is properly stilt reinforced. The residents have been informed that they can continue staying in the apartments – but, that they should not go out on the balconies.

The housing company already had knowledge about the problem of the subsidence in the wall below the terrace and has planned to reinforce the wall immediately after the Easter weekend.

The local newspaper Borås Tidning has written about the collapse (in Swedish).
