Development Huyssen Quartier Essen

Client: Grundstücksgesellschaft Huyssenallee 58-62/66-68 GmbH & Co. KG

Duration: Approx. 3 years


The Huyssen Quartier is being built in the centre of Essen city and consists of residential and office buildings. For the construction of the three basement levels, an excavation pit up to 12.5 m deep was required, which had to be partially tie-back anchored. The excavation pit is adjacent to a 9-storey existing building, which has to be supported.


Planning of the inner-city site excavation taking into account the foundation of the neighbouring structures, a subway line running underneath and the limited space available.

Core performance:

Core services included object and structural design for HOAI service phases 1 to 4 and 6 to 8 and the preparation of sound and vibration forecasts for the demolition of the existing buildings and the construction of the excavation pit.
