Our project Bleichinselbrücke in Heilbronn has been nominated for the German Bridge Construction Prize 2018. The Bleichinselbrücke across the Alt-Neckar is a four-lane integral road bridge with cycle and pedestrian paths. Due to its particular location in a flat meadow it was decided to design a composite construction with concrete deck and steel box girders acting as main girders.
The German Bridge Construction Prize is awarded biennial by the Bundesingenieurkammer and the German Association of Consulting Engineers at the Bridgeconstruction symposium in Dresden. Within both categories three projects are nominated before one final winner is chosen.
In 2016 schlaich bergermann partner was nominated for the German Bridge Construction Prize with the Railway Bridge Grubental and in 2014 schlaich bergermann partner won the award in the category railroad bridge with the Railway Bridge Gänsebachtal. The award ceremony and therefore the announcement of the winning design will be held on March 12, 2018 in Dresden. We are very pleased to be nominated and looking forward to the event.
