Moscow bus terminal foundations underway

liebherr moscow

The installation of slurry walls and barrette piles for a new 11-storey building in Moscow are underway.

Contractor Fensma is currently completing the deep foundation work using seven duty cycle crawler cranes and one piling and drilling rig.

The new €73M (£63.8M) building is being developed on the Sholkovskoye Chaussee and will include shops and entertainment facilities with a bus terminal. Around one-fifth of the cost is for deep foundation work.

Cast-in-place 52m deep slurry walls with a total of 310,000m² and 3,500t of reinforcement cages are being installed as a lining wall for the foundation pit.

According to Liebherr, whose machines are being used on the project, eighteen hours is required for the excavation of one 2800mm bite. In addition to the slurry wall, the deep foundation fleet is inserting 154 individual 52m barrette piles for the foundations with 110m³ concrete. A total of 800t steel is being installed.

When opened next year, around 1,600 bus services are expected daily carrying 15,000 passengers and at peak times 1,000 passengers per hour.

Watch this film showing the Liebherr machines in operation on the project.
