Replacement of the river bank wall along the Chemnitz river in the city centre of Chemnitz

In the course of the 2013 flood event, the old embankment wall along the Chemnitz River was damaged to such an extent that its stability was severely compromised. The old structure had to be replaced with a new one. The planning services for this construction project were carried out by G.E.O.S..

The particular challenge in this project were the narrow construction conditions and the heritage-protected Luxor Event Centre building directly adjacent to the construction site. The wall was completely renewed over a length of almost 90 metres. The structure has a height of approx. 5 metres and was given a red granite facing in accordance with the requirements of the listed building. The wall was founded using an overlapping bored pile wall made of large bored piles.

The restored pavement to the building was constructed in small granite paving in accordance with the urban planning. Ruby trees were planted in the green strips in accordance with the design concept of the Parks Department. The widened canopy design makes it possible to stroll along the water. The newly installed benches provide a place to relax on the newly designed banks. As part of the project, the canals in the construction area were renewed.
