The canal and the parking garage were installed at minimum 3 - 6 m distance from old houses with a shallow foundation by means of a 10 m deep building pit. A risk analysis was undertaken and major risks were identified, resulting in mitigating measures, e.g. compensation grouting in combination with very accurate monitoring. The structure was completed in 2014.
