Industrial wasteland Quitzowstraße

The construction of a new superstore on the Quitzostraße required the clearing of construction sites on a former industrial wasteland of approximately 25.000 m2. Partly basement buildings and warehouses with contaminated structure (i.a. asbestos, KMF, tarboards, MKW) were to be break off and dispose of construction waste. For the adjustment of the height of the terrain by up to approximately 2 m applying a compacted poster and for improving the subsoil below the base plate, about 7.000 m3 of construction waste (up to LAGA Z 2) were processed and reused. Due to low-lying organic deposits (up to about 11 m) and up to 8 m thick loosely fillings,  a subsoil improvement below the new construction foundation was carried out by means of vibrated stone columns.
