MIP wall for Regensburg Schwabelweis

The city of Regensburg is to see millions of euros in investment over the next several years toward the improvement of  flood protection for  the  Danube River. In the second of a total of 18 sub-projects, dikes along the southern bank of the Danube, which at times merely consist of the banked side of a sewage collector, are being raised and  provided with an  inner seal.



As  an  alternative  to  the  sheet  pile  solution  originally put forward in the tender, a cut-off wall in the Mixed- in-Place method was constructed.


The low-vibration construction meant that less strain was placed on both the existing canal as well as on buildings located  nearby such as St. Georg Church.
