- THE STORYApprox. 350,000 m³ of sand will be supplied for this project. The sand arrives by ship via the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal where it is unloaded at the quay specifically built for this purpose. The decision to deliver by ship was mainly taken in order to limit inconvenience for residents.
The building land will be raised using the sand in order to allow the soil to settle. This is necessary in order to prevent subsequent subsidence in the residential area.
