“In the second quarter they want to prepare the construction pit and the foundations, so get going. Test drilling had shown that the ground on the Elbe bridges is a little stronger than expected and that the foundations do not have to be rammed 111 meters, but only a good 70 meters into the ground. The 245 meter high office and hotel tower is to form the end of the Hafencity. The cost of construction is estimated at at least 700 million euros. It should be ready in 2025.”
Is official under construction
Hey goodlookin’, what’s cookin’.
„ At the time of the presentation of the mostly finalised design, on February 8th, 2018, the Elbtower with its planned height of 245 meters would be by far the tallest conventional building in Hamburg, and the third tallest in Germany – after the Commerzbank Tower and the Messeturm (both in Frankfurt am Main).“
It’s a sheet pile retaining wall that is preventing the river from flooding the site.
How does concrete construction actually work?
I don’t understand this question.
„ With up to 40 truck deliveries of steel per week, the task in November was to install the reinforcement for the four-meter-thick high-rise floor slab and thus work towards the first important milestone: A total of around 10,800 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete were processed during the almost 48-hour large-scale concreting operation in December 2022. In addition to the logistical challenges of coordinating more than 1,200 deliveries, the subzero temperatures made it necessary to preheat the concrete in the concrete plant.
In addition, the site team, in cooperation with the concrete laboratory technicians and the concrete manufacturer, used a special formula that reaches its final strength only after 91 days of testing age. Overall, everything went successfully; an important milestone was reached with the production of the floor slab.“ (google translator)
Is that some kind of flat foundation?
All foundations are flat, even those on extreme terrain.
Efficiency/thats how many the contractor wanted.
What is that gray cover?
