The iconic Michiel de Ruyter Bridge has been completed! This movable bridge has many faces and will in future be the main entrance to the Zeeheldenwijk housing development in the Dutch village of Urk. When opened, tower and counterweight resemble the shape of a netting needle, which refers to the main characteristic of the fishing village.
The Flemish government selected around 40 bridges that they want to have replaced by 2030. A consortium of Arcadis, SBE and Tractebel was recently commissioned to prepare this large-scale replacement operation. The consortium has asked ipv Delft to help them create a manual outlining the desired design quality for the new bridges.
The SPI.R0 consortium, in which Belgian contractors Jan De Nul and Willemen Infra join forces, has been appointed as the bidder of preference for the large-scale refurbishment of the R0xA201 motorway interchange in Brussels. Within the project, we are responsible for the architectural design of all infrastructural structures, such as bridges and bicycle underpasses.

It is with pride that ipv Delft, Karres en Brands (coordinating architect) and German Ingenieurbüro Miebach now present the final design.
We recently posted a new download: a brochure dedicated to our system of standardised movable bridges, The Dutch Bridge. This all-in-one solution for well-designed movable bridges significantly simplifies and speeds up both the initiation and building process, reducing building time and building costs.
This Wednesday to Friday we will be attending the Footbridge Conference in Madrid. Two of our designers will share our expertise during two consecutive lectures.
If you are interested in feasibility and/or design studies, then our latest publication might be what you are looking for: the feasibility and design studies brochure. It features several project for which we have performed such a study or quick-scan and tells you more about what to expect.
The Zwolle public transport bridge has been awarded the Special Bridge Award at the European Steel Design Awards 2021!
