The pit will be filled with water and further excavated until 16 m below grade. The basement floor will be poored under water.
The water will counteract the pressure from the soil against the walls. The frame is also meant to support the walls.

From the Dutch forum. On pic 16, 18, 24 you can see the foundations of the medieval settlement which was here around 1200.

For what reason? I've never heard of this method before.

Superb project by the way. And thanks for keeping this thread updated, Eric.

The waterpressure keeps the walls from caving in. With the site underwater,
it's just a matter of dredging de remaining sand out of the pit without the
need for further reinforcing structures. When the sand is removed they pour
a giant slab of underwaterconcrete, job done

You're welcome In the Holland Hoogbouw Forum (Rotterdam) are some graphic explainations of the concept. Quite interesting...

That's because there are no visible changes here. They are still working under water so nothing to see....
