For the city of Schlüchtern in Hessen, we currently have a trough bridge with a length of 30 metres in production. The main girders on the side are made from GL 28C plywood, the U-shaped frames are galvanized steel, and the surfacing is made from GFRP.
The wooden construction that is designed for a lifespan of over 60 years will receive larch boardings. On the inside, where the boarding might be affected by direct splashing, we will use HPL instead of larch boards.
The assembly of the green bridge in Thyrow is progressing. The arcs of both tunnels have been installed and work on the wooden cover cap has already begun. Back at our production plant, the portals for the entrance of the tunnel are being prepared.
The final work before the opening of the new Center Parc in Leutkirch included the installation of a bridge, as well as the assembly of wooden decking and extended railings on the promenade in front of the central building. Previously we had manufactured and installed the steel/wood roof structures over the swimming pool.
In Thyrow, Brandenburg, the assembly of the first pairs of girders has begun. After prefabrication had taken place at the Fresenburg plant in recent months, the prefabricated girder pairs are now gradually being assembled on site. At the same time, the curved cross-laminated timber formwork is being attached to the girder pairs so that weather protection can be provided as quickly as possible.
The steel-timber bridge with flooring made from certified Bongossi wood and stainless steel ropes as railing infill has been successfully installed. The lighting in the handrails will be fitted on site.
Not long to wait now: The installation of the first truss of the green bridge traversing B101 near Thyrow begins. The arch trusses are filling up the yard in Fresenburg and are waiting for transport to the construction site. Our colleagues are already on site preparing the steel elements in the abutments.
Our installation works of the jetties on the site of the upcoming national garden show are shaping a new part of town. The wooden footbridges are planned barrier-free and even offer a tactile guiding system for the blind.
A few days after its construction, the new bridge in Bammental (Baden-Wuerttemberg) was inaugurated by the minister of transport Winfried Hermann. The wooden framework bridge traverses the Elsenz and connects the village to RadNETZ. The building was manufactured and assembled in no time.
For the Dutch water board Hoogheemraadschap Stichtse Rijnlanden, we are building two new lock gates according to the old model for a listed sluice close to Gouda. The gates are made of FSC-certified Bongossi wood and are prebuilt and installed in one piece. The L-shaped gates have a side length of 4.5 m x 3.8 m at a height of 5.5 m.
The first, approximately 240 laminated wood arcs for the new green bridge traversing B101 at Thyrow are lying in our workshop and being processed. The already prebuilt steel parts can now be installed into the laminated wood elements. In total, there will be 1.000 m³ of laminated wood, 3.200 m³ of plywood and 150 t of steel installed.
