Tesla Giga Berlin will significantly reduce the number of concrete piles reaching groundwater. This decision was made due to the concerns of the local population and environmentalists.
During the construction of Giga Berlin, Tesla has repeatedly proven its flexibility and ability to compromise. This time, the company again listened to the concerns and reduced the number of piles reaching groundwater.
Tesla representatives announced an updated plan today during the Tesla Straße unveiling ceremony.

"Originally we believed that we would need up to 15,000 piles, in the end, it was still 1,100," said a Tesla spokesman, according to Freenet. He said the company now has the opportunity to change the concept and use only 500 to 550 piles. This is underlined Tesla's serious attitude to the needs of the region.
According to Tesla's representatives, now only the Press Shop will need piles, the Casting building will be built by a different method. "Only the press shop, but no longer the Casting, is built on piles."

Tesla Giga Berlin Drive Unit Building Nears Completion in Stunning Construction Pushhttps://t.co/yV6ak8u34W— Tesmanian.com (@Tesmanian_com) August 13, 2020
A Tesla spokesman said Giga Berlin could break the construction record of Giga Shanghai. Using the prefabricated construction method saves a lot of time. An important factor is the availability of a railway—allowing 1200 tons of building materials to be delivered at a time.
