Flood protection at the Niederhafen, Lot 2

Implementation09/2015 - 12/2017
Client  Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg

As part of Hamburg’s flood protection program, the Niederhafen Lot 2 (Am Johannisbollwerk) flood barrier is also being refurbished over a length of some 310 meters. HOCHTIEF is building the barrier so that it joins up with Lot 1. Similarly to its predecessor, Lot 2 will also integrate a parking garage into the new structure. The elegant promenade, designed by the architect Zaha Hadid, will in future stand on top of the new flood barrier, at a protected altitude of 8.4 meters. In addition to the flood protection measures we are also handling the foundation work for a new restaurant on the promenade.

As on other construction projects beside and in the water, we are using our own equipment for the Niederhafen project.
