Scope of service

In the heart of Nuremberg's historic old town, an 8-story new building was erected in perimeter block development with a museum, a 4-star hotel with 101 rooms and swimming pool, apartments, retail, restaurant and a 2-story underground garage for 170 parking spaces. The supporting structure was realized in reinforced concrete construction with biaxially spanned solid slabs, semi-precast elements and precast reinforced concrete elements. Throughout the museum's exhibition area, fair-faced concrete was required for the walls, ceilings and roof surfaces (some with falling eaves). To secure the 11 m deep excavation, a secant bored pile wall was used, which was supported against each other and against a partial floor slab with horizontal and inclined steel sections. An elaborate dewatering system was installed to drain the excavation and keep it dry. The new building was permanently erected on the enclosing bored pile wall as well as on over 90 individual bored piles, which were set deep in the sandstone. The components in contact with the ground, the floor slab and the outer walls, were designed and built as a so-called white tank from water-impermeable reinforced concrete in accordance with the WU guideline.
