Ramboll will develop an exemplary drainage system for Copenhagen
Danish design firm Ramboll will head a flood prevention project in Copenhagen, involving the construction of pools and canals to divert excess rainwater from the city’s central lake.
The project creates artificial drainage zones in Hans Tavsens Park and the Nørrebro district in the north of the city. On the way to the Peblinge lake, the water flow will undergo biological treatment.
Christian Nyerup Nielsen, head of the Ramboll subdivision dealing with the problem of flooding, said: “The project opens a new milestone in adapting the city to the climate, as it brings together the right technical and social aspects and at the same time offers an innovative solution by improving lake water quality ".
Park reservoirs, which are planned to be commissioned in 2022, will be able to hold 18 thousand cubic meters of water.
The planned Ramboll will be implemented by the local landscape design bureau SLA.In addition to them, the project team includes Danish companies ArkiLab, “GAME”, Social Action, as well as the author and sociologist Aydin Soei.
