In collaboration with Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos and Winchester based Adams Hendry Consulting Ltd , we entered the Nine Elms to Pimlico Bridge competition. Ours was one of over 80 entries and unfortunately wasn’t shortlisted. The jury stated we were ‘another strong team’ and that ‘there was a recognition that this design is aspirational’. We proposed a very slender single span bridge made of fiber reinforced composite, a spiraling ramp at either side and transformation of the landings into attractive recreational areas.

The build of Nigtevecht bicycle bridge is nearing its final stages. Last weekend, the steel arch bridge spanning 104 meter was put into place during a spectacular night time event. The concrete approach spans have been constructed over the past year and the bridge is now set to be completed this summer. For more info or photos, visit the project page. A video of the night time event can be found on the building contractors Facebook page.
