Newly anchored: quay walls at Zollamt No. 4.
01.02.2018 – The sheet pile walls that were newly installed at the former Zollamt (custom house) No. 4 in Hamburg’s historic Speicherstadt (warehouse district) are currently being back-anchored with micro piles.
Later, reinforced concrete components will be produced as reinforcements and faced with brickwork in order to retain the historic appearance.
More than 100 years have passed since the quay wall was erected. The construction has suffered in the intervening period. Flooding has resulted in subsidence in the road. The remediation of the quay wall will be completed by the end of 2018.
