Actual Information

Now something can be seen on the construction site at the Lotsekanal in Hamburg-Harburg: A detailed sign on Blohmstrasse informs about the project. The next preparations are also being made on the construction site.  

In the last few months, the sheet pile walls at the Lotse- and Kaufhauskanal have been extensively renovated. A public path along these water surfaces will be accessible after completion of the construction.  

The foundation has been completed. 111 screw piles were installed in the ground to ensure a stable foundation for the eight-storey building.  

The ceremonial laying of the foundation stone with greetings from the First Mayor of Hamburg, the Executive Board of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the President of the TU Hamburg and the architect of the building will take place at the end of June.

Following the foundation, the actual construction site equipment and building construction will begin, which is scheduled to be completed in summer 2020. It will be another year before the building is completed and the employees move in.
