Establishment of construction pit and foundation for two residential blocks

For the construction of an 67 x 194-metre underground parking, Aarsleff has designed and established the con­struction pit at depths of up to 8.5 metres and with up to four bracing levels as well as carried out the founda­tion for two residential blocks and a tower inspired by Big Ben. The project at Aarhus Ø was contractually divided into two contracts, but Aarsleff was responsible for the total execution and design of the entire construction pit which comprises a hotel and conference centre in addition to residential buildings. For the hotel and conference centre, we have installed and tested two drilled piles, DN 1180 millimetres and drilled to 55 metres below ground level. The results of the test piles were to form the basis for the final design of the foundation of the building.
