Bridge construction

Bridges create connections. We plan stationary and movable bridges. In the special field of movable bridges, we have already realised bascule, swing, lifting and folding bridges for road, pedestrian and rail traffic. In addition to aesthetics, design, mechanical engineering, steel construction and electrical engineering are of decisive importance for a convincing solution. Interdisciplinary cooperation in all planning phases guarantees successful project realisation.

The Kienlesberg bridge is a steel bridge in Ulm, Baden-Württemberg. The 270-metre-long bridge was built as part of the construction of the new Ulm tram line 2 and opened in 2018. Inspired by the neighbouring heritage-listed Neutor Bridge, the bridge was built in a truss design.

The overall project was awarded the German Civil Engineering Prize 2020.
