    Project term: 37 months

Engineering services for planning of infrastructure to develop the Norispark site in Nuremberg for housing and industrial settlement


The company Norispark Grundstücksentwicklungs GmbH initiated the development of the plots of land on the Thurn-und-Taxis-Straße 20 estate in striking distance of the Nordostpark in Nuremberg. On an area of approximately 61,000 m², high-class business facilities and residential apartment complexes are to be built. This objective as well as the particular location of the Norispark imposed high requirements on GAUFF Engineering regarding urban development and planning.


For the site preparation and site development work, a public access road had to be planned and the adjoining properties had to be reparcelled. Furthermore, the premises had to be connected to the sewage system and already existing supply media had to be considered in an integrative way for the planning. The realised access road with turning area is about 550 m long. In terms of drainage, the sewage facilities with integration of the existing drains and the central infiltration system for rainwater management had to be planned. In some parts, a street-side trough-trench system was designed for infiltration.

Additionally, plans for internal and transregional routes around the premises were drafted, taking the planned land consolidation between the city of Nuremberg and the Norispark Grundstücksentwicklungs GmbH into consideration.

In the context of site development design, the planning activities of third parties (for example the N-ERGIE Aktiengesellschaft Nürnberg for supply media) had to be integrated. All construction measures needed to be drafted in close cooperation with the city administration of Nuremberg in the context of a development contract.


The following services were commissioned for civil engineering planning:

Basic evaluation
Preliminary design
Conceptual design
Approval planning
Execution planning
Lead design / local construction supervision

Further services:

Coordination of the existing distribution networks 
Preparation of drainage applications
