On and off the construction site: Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier takes shape 1046 554 Südliches Überseequartier
Until 2020, the construction site of the Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier grew more in depth than in height: Bored piles, jacking piers and anchors up to 30 meters underground were set and the floor slab was poured – as a foundation for the basement floors 3, 2 and 1. But in the past months of 2021, which is now coming to an end, did the buildings visibly rise up to the sky – in part, incl. the basement floors, seven floors and more than 100,000 square meters of floor slab and raft area have already been erected. At times, 800 people per day poured 59,000 cubic meters of concrete, laid 11,000 tons of steel reinforcement and installed 3,800 tons of composite beams and columns from steel. read more
