Chair of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Excavation pit for the JaHo project in Berlin

As part of the module Foundation Engineering and Soil Mechanics II, a construction site excursion took place on 31.01.2023.

The destination of the excursion was the excavation pit for the JaHo project at Holzmarktstr. 3-5 (https://jaho-berlin.de/). Work on a trough excavation pit with diaphragm walls and jet-grouted sealing base could be seen here. The planned depth of the construction pit bottom below ground level is approx. 13 m. Above the sealing base, a bracing of the excavation pit walls with pipe stiffeners is planned.

We thank Mr. Heiner Krull (Art-Invest Real Estate Management GmbH & Co. KG) as well as Jens Scheffler and Florian Pester (GuD Geotechnik und Dynamik Consult GmbH) for the guided tour of the construction site!
