The second stage of a first class project.
Following the successful completion of the Kontorhaus office building phase 1 in Braunschweig, Gleeds seamlessly put phase 2 into action. Kontorhaus 2 is not only an extension of the existing building and underground car park, but also a new build 3,000m2 hotel with integrated apartments.
Phase 1 was completed under budget and within programme and phase 2, which is expected to be completed Q3 of 2017 is set to do the same.
Overcoming a challenging foundation.
There were many challenges on this project- one of the most demanding being the foundations. The site had been cleansed of pollution which dated back decades- a process that Gleeds managed over several years.
There were many and exacting procedures to be adhered to in the sinking of the pile foundation due to groundwater requirements and being immediately adjacent to the local river Oker. Gleeds monitored these procedures as well as assuming the role of project and cost management for the project.
