Denmark has a new landmark to be proud of — The Lighthouse Tower is now the tallest building in the country. Standing at a height of 142 meters, the tower dominates the skyline of the city of Aarhus.
The construction of this modern landmark was anything but straightforward. The first phase of the project had been completed in 2012 when the terrace apartments were built. At that time however, the second phase was put on hold due to feasibility concerns regarding challenging ground conditions for such a heavy structure, alongside the looming menace of a financial downturn.
Per Aarsleff took the challenge
Per Aarsleff, a Danish construction company renowned for their expertise in groundwork, was awarded the task to build the second phase of the project. Besides the main tower, this second phase included the construction of two 10-storey buildings, "Promenadehuset" and "Kanalhuset".
Best practices in Lean Construction Management
The project was completed in 2022, with a stunning 142-meter-high iconic building now adorning the tip of Aarhus' harborfront, showcasing the future of construction.
Utilizing modern construction methods such as Lean Construction and digital construction tools, the project was completed with the aid of Imerso.
Imerso combines innovative methods like laser scanning and BIM into a real-time digital twin for highly efficient construction site management. Routine As Built surveys and proactive site monitoring helped ensure construction quality control throughout the project and ultimately avoid work errors and delay costs.
