Guided Tour: Remediation of quay structure at Zollkanal.

19.06.2018 – We invite you to a guided tour at Zollkanal in Hamburg Speicherstadt (warehouse district) where the remediation works at the historic quay walls are in full swing. Our tours start on Saturday 24 June at 12, 13, 14 and 15 hrs. Meeting point: Wandrahmstieg. All those interested are welcome.

The quay walls consist of brickwork, dams and timber pile foundations. For some 130 years, time has taken its toll of them. They have suffered deformations towards the water and depressions in the roadway. Now the quay walls at Brook and at the former customs house will be remediated with due regard to the adjacent buildings and the stringent requirements for conservation of historical monuments. Reinforced concrete components will be produced as reinforcements and faced with brickwork in order to retain the historic appearance.
