Development of Harburg Brücken
A new residential and business district is being built in the emerging Hamburg suburb of Harburg south of the Elbe. A former rail freight depot at the Harburg inland port was to be given new use. A new building area was developed over an area of 10 ha for this purpose. The area was connected and developed using a new road to provide the infrastructure. Furthermore, public sewage equipment, power, drinking water, heat supply and public road lighting were planned and constructed.
Before work could be started on the extensive supply lines the abandoned area had to be cleared of explosive ordinances. After this, rainwater sewers and road and property drainage was constructed. One item worthy of note is a rainwater outlet which was drilled through an existing quay wall and built in at a diameter of 1 m.
After this, connections were made to a modern cogeneration unit specially constructed for the new area in order to provide the residents with district heating. The road areas were designed and developed together with the developer on the basis of the development concept.
