Issue 02/2019: On a new nature reserve and the A6 highway extension

Are you curious to know what the formation of new nature reserves and the extension of highways have to do with each other? Then read the new issue of “concepts by HOCHTIEF”. You will learn that processes such as wildcats conquering new habitats, flooding rivers once again overflowing their banks, and cultivated fields becoming nature reserves are often driven by highway construction. The reason: Compensatory measures are integral to the planning and implementation of infrastructure projects.

In the digital version of “concepts by HOCHTIEF”, under “concepts.hochtief.com”, you will not only find all topics of the magazine, but also additional exclusive films or stories. Featured in this issue, for example: the police headquarters in Aachen. After a short construction period, the Aachen police moved into new, highly modern and sustainable headquarters at the beginning of 2019. A particularity of this project: The building was realized within the framework of a public-private partnership (PPP). This also is an important prestige project for HOCHTIEF.

In Copenhagen and Stockholm, HOCHTIEF faces challenges of a similar caliber. Meter by meter, the tunnel boring machines are driving five-meter-wide tunnels forward beneath houses, parks, and watercourses there. At street level, city life goes on almost undisturbed. This is made possible by state-of-the-art tunneling technology from HOCHTIEF. concepts presents to you two examples from the Scandinavian metropolises.In Copenhagen and Stockholm, HOCHTIEF faces challenges of a similar caliber.

High-rises are particularly striking buildings. Some of them shape the skyline of Frankfurt and were built by HOCHTIEF. The company has now begun to build its 26th skyscraper in the banking metropolis, which is currently experiencing a boom in high-rise construction. Number 25, the Marienturm, is ready to welcome its new occupants. A good example of the Frankfurt approach to high-rises, which is very different from those of New York, Dubai, and Shanghai.
