Uniqueness of construction
The project was commissioned in Design&Build mode. For this reason, it was first necessary to design a concept for the building and translate it into a feasibility study. The works were not allowed to restrict boat traffic and therefore it was necessary to complete the entire construction part, including the filling of the reservoir, on time. The technically demanding part was laying the rails on the extended track. The rails had to be bent in the hall before assembly to best fit the shape of the lower structure.
