On 14-15 June it will be time for two more heritage buildings to be moved to a new address. The so-called bläckhorn houses B51 and B52 will be moved from Bolagsområdet to LKAB's development site at Luossavaara. Arbetarbostaden B5 and bläckhorn house B53 have already been moved to the area.

During the year, seven heritage buildings are being moved from Bolagsområdet to LKAB's development site at Luossavaara. In addition, the so-called Länsmansbostaden will be moved to the new urban core, east of the present urban centre.
