Structural Award 2014 for the Elbebridge Schönebeck

The Elbebridge Schönebeck won the Structural Award 2014 in the category "Highway or Railway Bridge Structures".

Judge's Comment:
The judges were impressed by the elegant simplicity of the bridge which has been thoughtfully detailed to fit perfectly into the surrounding landscape whilst, at the same time, creating a landmark structure. The steel box superstructure was well chosen to suit the segmental erection methodology, to provide aerodynamic stability and to provide smooth lines to the deck, reducing its apparent depth.

The Structural Awards sponsered by the Institution of Structural Engineers have been running for 46 years and are considered the worlds most prominent Awards for structural engineering.
