Awarded Projects

The Awarded Projects

At Hi-Con we are very proud of our constructions such as balconies, staircases, bridges, facades and much more that we manufacture in our UHPC-materials.

Therefore, it is with great pleasure and pride, we give you a glimpse of the award-winning projects where Hi-Con has contributed to realise novel solutions and aesthetic structures.

The Dutch Concrete Award 2017 & The European Concrete Award 2018

Catharina bridge in Leiden, Holland, first won the "Dutch Concrete Award 2017" and then the “European Concrete Award 2018” in the category ’Civil Engineering’. The motivation for the award in this category, is the architectural qualities, and the significant technical innovations which the bridge represents.

The elegant bridge has a minimalistic, organic and very slim design, in comparison to the span – a slenderness is needed due to requirements of free height under the bridge and made possible only because of Hi-Cons CRC i3® concept.

Hi-Con has contributed with specialized design knowledge and know-how, regarding calculations, assembly and execution. Furthermore, to realize the demanding project, we delivered the complex bridge elements and JointCast material for casting the elements together.

The Danish Architecture Day 2018

In the beginning of 2018 the project “Grønnegården” was awarded at “The Danish Architecture Day 2018”. The project received the award especially because of its successful facade renovation and the creation of new outdoor areas.

The Architecture Award 2017

In the beginning of October 2017, the "Strandingsmuseum St. George" in Thorsminde was honored with the "Architecture Award" by the municipality of Holstebro. The museum received the award due to the reconstruction and rethinking of the purpose and potential they succeeded in creating. The architectural result was a special place with its own identity and character, blending in with its surroundings.
