St Andries and Zuid Schelde Quays

DE CONCEPTONTWIKKELING EN KWALITEITSBEWAKING VOOR DE HERINRICHTING VAN DE PUBLIEKE RUIMTE EN DE REALISATIE VAN DE WATERKERING VAN DEELPROJECT SCHELDEKAAIEN / SINT-ANDRIES ZUID TE ANTWERPEN.

The Masterplan deals with a 7km riverfront intervention area and focuses on finding a strategy to enhance water defence barriers. The proposal considers the risk of flooding for a 350 years return period instead of the current 100. That implies providing a 2,00m high barrier rather than the actual 1,35m and consequently involves major transformation in the port strip that separates the city centre from the river.

This 2 year long process was exceptionally demanding (and successful) in terms of consultation and engagement with project stakeholders since the initial phases. We are currently developing detail design for the first intervention area – St. Andries and Zuid Schelde.
