A construction Pit was built at the Port of Aarhus, also our ‘AarGroup’ Highlight of the Month 🌍
During 2011 to 2017, our parent company Per Aarsleff A/S built an 8-metre-deep Construction Pit. The construction was for a new multimedia house and quay structure for a new waterfront area in the Port of Aarhus.
In the process, they demolished the old quays, carried out earthwork and pile driving for the construction pit, installed ground anchors, sheet piles and carried out groundwater lowering. Several of the Aarsleff Group’s core competencies were exhibited in this project.
- Aarsleff installed a total of 42,000 running metres of precast reinforced concrete piles of lengths up to 36 metres.
- They excavated 250,000 cubic metres of sand and earth.
- Drilled 773 anchors.
- Installed 18,000 square metres of sheet piles in lengths ranging from 5-25 metres.
During the piling work, they focused on the comprehensive safety measures for the work carried out very close to the railway line.
