Farewell to the construction workers of the shell at underground station Rotes Rathaus

The shell construction at underground station Rotes Rathaus has been completed. A space of almost 60,000 cubic meters was rebuilt; for the two-storey underground station (below the installation of the sweeping system, above the underground station) almost 74,000 cubic meters of ground were lifted; 42,000 cubic meters of concrete and 6,200 tons of reinforcement were installed. Many thanks to all the companies and workers who have done so successfully.

At the end, the last curtains, which once held the ceiling from above, were sawn and removed on the spot. After completing the archaeological work in front of underground station Rotes Rathaus, the expansion follows now: from electrical cables to elevators, from natural stone facades to signposting, from railroad tracks to gravel - there is still a lot to be done.

What inspired the architect? Why is this shell finished in front of the other underground stations? If you need more information about the shell construction of underground station Rotes Rathaus, check out our film: Schlitzwände und Pilzkopfstützen: Der Rohbau am U-Bahnhof Rotes Rathaus"
