reconstruction historical wall

The historic retaining wall of the Bemuurde Weerd is going to be restored in the center of Utrecht. The wall collapsed in the autumn of 2013.

The cause of the collapse of the historical wall has not been established. Experts believe that the accident happened due to a combination of heavy continuous rainfall and rinsing sand at the foundation of the ancient wall.

B & P Bodeminjectie B.V. will cooperate in the reconstruction by injecting a layer in the construction pit. This layer will keep the water out so the contractor can build without disruption of water.
