“Removal of Ornaments Begins at Børsen Building in Copenhagen”

Saturday morning, a part of the wall in the burned section of the Børsen building in Copenhagen was removed in a planned operation, according to the Capital Region’s Emergency Services. Overnight, the work to remove the scaffolding around the building has progressed, allowing the removal of valuable ornaments from the building’s facade to begin. The ornaments, which are an important part of Børsen’s historical appearance, are carefully packed and moved to secure containers to preserve them for future generations.

“We are working systematically and carefully to ensure that none of the historic elements are lost during the process,” explains Jakob Vedsted Andersen, director of the Capital Region’s Emergency Services, during a press briefing. At the same time, “The Bumblebee,” the largest construction machine in Northern Europe, has been used to assist with dismantling the scaffold. The machine, weighing 200 tons, plays a central role in the ongoing work on site. Despite the progress, Jakob Vedsted Andersen emphasizes that there is still risk involved in the work.

“We cannot guarantee that the outer walls will not collapse further, but we are doing everything we can to stabilize the situation,” he says. Early Saturday morning, Børsen also experienced a minor resurgence of the fire, but the situation was quickly brought under control by the attending firefighters. “Our teams are on high alert and ready to handle any situation that may arise,” Andersen adds.

The Emergency Services expect to be present at Børsen in the coming days to continue the work of securing the building and its historical elements. There is no precise timeline yet for when the operation is expected to be completed.
