New, multifunctional city quarter: Living Central
In the middle of Düsseldorf, the regional state capital, and within walking distance of the Central Station, Catella Project Management is developing a new, modern, multifunctional city quarter on the area of the former post distribution centre which is to be completed by 2018: the Living Central.
On a 38,000 m² plot of land, eleven structures will be built. In addition to the structural engineering for the above-ground and underground areas, Schüßler-Plan has also been commissioned to provide project management for the new city quarter.
U5 UNDERGROUND RAILWAY LINE
Construction of the U5 underground railway line – closing a gap in Berlin-Mitte
The gap which is to be closed extends for an overall length of approximately 2.2 km from the Brandenburg Gate to the Alexanderplatz. Furthermore, three new stations will be constructed on this section of line: the underground stations “Berliner Rathaus”, “Museumsinsel” and “Unter den Linden”. Within this project, Schüßler-Plan accomplishes the construction management and supervision. Construction of the tunnel, including transportation of the tunnel driving machine to and from the site, was completed in February 2016 following 34 months of work. To close the gap in the U5 line it was necessary to drive two tunnels, each measuring 1,620 m in length. Initially track 1 was constructed; the tunnel driving machine was then returned to its starting shaft and switched to construct the second tunnel for track 2.
Grad Tower Frankfurt: Germany's highest residential tower
The Grand Tower, Germany’s highest residential tower located at Europa-Allee 2 between the financial district, Westend and the new “Europaviertel”, will be completed in 2019. With 48 floors and a gross floor area of 44,000 m² the building will consist of 400 exclusive apartments and penthouses. The architect’s office Magnus Kaminiarz & Cie. made the drafts for the landmark building. More than half of the new living space is planned as three and four room apartments and a third with a smaller floor plan. Thereby the modular construction allows flexible layouts from 41 to 300 m². Schüßler-Plan has been commissioned with comprehensive consulting and coordination services and extended information and stakeholder management.
