The Cooltoren: construction phase 2

All 167 foundation piles for the 150 meter high Cooltoren are in! And that calls for the start of phase 2, the ground excavation for the concrete foundation slab. As soon as the excavation work is at depth and the reinforcements are positioned and fixed, all is set for phase 3, the pouring of the concrete.

The foundation will be placed onto two levels. The deepest part lies below the Hoornbrekersstraat. There, the bottom of the slab lies at a depth of approximately 5 meters and the concrete will have a thickness of approximately 2 meters. When the foundation of the Hoornbrekerstraat is finished, the second part of the foundation on the Baan side will be poured.

All should be finished by mid-September.
