The historic building in the urban fabric of the old town, which houses the Kaufbeuren City Museum, was converted and upgraded in the course of a comprehensive renovation of the historic stock and extended by a new building. The new building has a basement and 2 upper floors, which were extended towards the street side with an additional upper floor. It was erected in place of the demolished building Kaisergäßchen 10 and directly adjoins the existing buildings Kaisergäßchen 8 and 12. The neighbouring building Kaisergäßchen 12 is listed.
The new building is a mixed construction of reinforced concrete and masonry. The basement, which is located in the groundwater, is designed in WU construction and is founded on an elastically bedded base plate. In the rear part of the building, which has no basement, the company was founded on HDI bodies. The horizontal building stiffening is achieved by a sufficient number of wall panels.
The new building Kaisergäßchen 10 will have a basement in the front area, i.e. adjacent to the building Kaisergäßchen 8. Since the foundation of the new building is one storey lower than the existing foundations of the neighbouring building, its wall foundation had to be supported and laterally stabilised. The construction was planned in sections, the excavation pit was stiffened on the inside. Among other things, construction and assembly conditions were described and verified for the construction process.
