The Zwolle public transport bridge has been awarded the Special Bridge Award at the European Steel Design Awards 2021! It is the fourth award this project has received, and for ipv Delft it’s the cherry on top of our 25-year anniversary cake. The ESDA’s are given by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) every two years to encourage the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture.
Exactly 25 years ago today, ipv Delft was born. We have had twentyfive inspiring years, in which we were able to deepen our knowledge and expertise and completed many wonderful projects. We could not have done it without our clients, so thank you all! We are looking forward to many more years of inspired collaboration.
The Western Australian Government has announced that a new bicycle and pedestrian connection will be built across the Swan River in Perth. We made the initial design for this, comprising of two iconic cable-stayed bridges. The new connection will gravely improve traffic flow and allows cyclists and pedestrians to safely cross the Swan River. Read more about it on our project page.
On September 24th all partners involved in the Zwolle public transport bridge project were awarded the Thüringer Staatpreis für Ingenieurleistungen 2019. The biannual German engineering award consists of 15000 euro. We designed the S-shaped bridge for Zwolle city council and Dutch railway infrastructure organisation ProRail. The awarded parties are Koninklijke BAM, Setzpfandt, ProRail, Zwolle and ipv Delft.
The Emmeloord movable bridge has recently been completed. We are very proud of the fact that it has turned out exactly the way we intended it to: contemporary and clean. All machinery and technical installations are fully integrated, allowing the bridge to have a clear and clean appearance. The bridge design is an architectural take on our system of standard movable bridges, The Dutch Bridge and was designed specifically for this client and location.
The Depoldering Noordwaard project has been awarded with the Landezine International Landscape Award in the Infrastructure category! In collaboration with West8 architects we designed all 30+ bridges for this interesting project, as well as 10+ pumping stations. The award ceremony will be on September 20th in Geneva.
US based media company Forbes has picked up on our publication about the Zwolle public transport bridge. Transport and infrastructure journalist Carlton Reid wrote an interesting article on both the Zwolle bridge and various other ipv Delft projects. Outstanding free publicity for us! And a good read for anyone interested in infrastructure and bridge design.
