A sustainable solution for underground infrastructure

Page last modified

The world is urbanizing every minute. The pressure on our cities is increasing. Urbanized regions worldwide are faced with the important task of absorbing this population growth.
However much of the available space is already taken up by above-ground structures, and the nuisance created by traditional construction methods becomes increasingly difficult to justify.
To provide an answer, Denys is investing heavily in what we like to call Dreamcutter-technology. We entered into a strategic cooperation with Bauer Maschinen GmbH, and together we developed the first machine. The Dreamcutter/Cube system, a machine that will change inner-city building forever.

Pros & Limitations
Subterranean building with minimum impact
Increased safety
Fully electric
Proven Bauer technology
Build underground infrastructure where previously not possible
Water table needs to be 1.5m below access tunnel
Specification Title Specification Description
The Dreamcutter uses a slurry wall system based upon the hydrocutter technology of Bauer to create slurry walls out of underground low headroom spaces.
The machine with a size of 2,9 x 2,4 x 18 m (h x w x l) is built out of four high cube containers. Walls of up to 40 m depth and 1 m width can be created using this system.
Access needed
The machine can operate from e.g. a micro tunnel of 4 m diameter,or any other low headroom space. On the surface an access shaft of only 6 x 8 m is needed, which highly reduces the above ground impact.
Areas of Application
Construction of Subterranean floor levels
