Building Relocation – Sarona

Tel Aviv
Developer: The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Authority for Economic Development

This project called for the relocation of five buildings constructed by the Templars in 1868.
The relocation of these historic buildings was carried out to facilitate development incorporating environmental and conservation principles on the one hand and the widening of Kaplan Street for greater traffic flow on the other. After cutting loose the foundations and detaching the buildings from the ground, they were transported to their new nearby location on a track moving at five kilometers per hour.
The Dutch company, Mammoet, which specializes in hoisting and transporting heavy equipment, partnered in this project.
