Bridges from wood – the magazine is here



Designing bridges is the supreme discipline for engineers. For a long time, it was the preserve of concrete engineers, as large bridge projects were built of steel and concrete as standard. Today, things are different: bridges are now built from wood. Learn more about this in our magazine.

«We must build bridges to each other if we are to have any hope of salvation in this insane world.» This quote from Peter Ustinov is truer than ever in these Corona-influenced times. We need bridges. They connect two riverbanks, create physical and cultural connections between people - and allow animals to cross highways.  

The Rynetel wildlife bridge is the first wildlife overpass in timber construction in Switzerland. Over 1000 tons of CO₂ could be saved compared to a conventional construction method. Read more about this wildlife bridge and other exciting wooden bridges in our recently published magazine.
