17.08.2016 PILING WORKS ANTWERP


After the piling works the construction pit of 6000 m² will be filled layer by layer and the quay wall will get its characteristic coating back. Before the demolition works started, the authentic elements such as the bollards and blue stone were removed carefully. Molds were made out of the historic masonry and they will serve to make exact replicas out of concrete.

All these elements will be attached to the steel frame later on. Thus, the stabilized quay wall will maintain its former look.
