Normally, in civil engineering, first structures are excavated or built, then the structure is covered with concrete in the excavation pit. Among our specialties at UHRIG is the so-called lowered structure. In this procedure, a structure is first filled in with concrete above ground, and only then lowered into its position below ground. In the lowering of a structure, we always save time and space, which means money and resources. The building surface is thus clearly smaller and the excavation as well as securing of the excavation pit is omitted.
Not every large civil engineering structure can be realized as a lowered structure, but this approach is exemplary for our goal at UHRIG of developing suitable solutions for every project and for every customer.
