Build a Bridge -Fast

I’ve always admired bridge builders. I’m especially impressed when the designers and builders are able to reduce the construction time by using clever techniques. Steel structures using universal columns and other products are essential to fast construction.

Finnish steel manufacturer Ruukki provided and installed the structures of a 437 meter long bridge in Lövö, Southern Finland. This was the first time this particular technique was used in Finland.

The video animation shows how the 100-meter long bridge sections were put into place with the help of a sea crane in three days. The total steel installation time on site was cut from half a year to just one month.

The contractor of the bridge project was Skanska, and the structural design was by Ramboll. The project was completed in 2011.
