To increase the comfort of the users with respect to noise and vibrations generated by the nearby train traffic, it was decided to put the entire Doornroosje music center on a building base isolation system with a decoupling frequency of approximately 10Hz. The installed isolation system is a Stravibase VHS solution, being resilient bearings made of rubber layers separated by larger steel plates.

Under the tallest part of the building, the Stravibase VHS elements have been installed under the columns in such a way that the elements can be replaced in case of damage. This was an explicit requirement for acceptance of the solution put forward by the Government of Nijmegen.
