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.
