The ferry «Meilen» is the longest ship on Lake Zurich, 60 m long and weighing 380 tons - was put into service in May 2017.
Passerelle in the Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen
Due to its size, the new construction was delivered in six components and assembled on site in the summer of 2017. This new double-decker connection is around 125 tonnes and 51 metres long. Double-storeyed, therefore, to separate the paths of patients from those of logistics.
CFF Passerelle Neuhausen / Rhine Falls
A safe walk to the Rhine Falls; every 30 minutes from the new SBB stop «Neuhausen Rhine Falls», you can walk comfortably and effortlessly over the spectacular steel and concrete structure down to Europe's largest waterfall.
Pressure pipeline Neubrigg (Gommerkraftwerke AG)
Coating work on the Neubrigg pressure pipeline - moisture-curing products in steel hydraulic engineering for abrasion-resistant long-term corrosion protection.
The passerelle spans 60 metres at a height of 8 metres. Their angled shape results from the two starting points which are not coordinated with each other. It consists of three parts; the facet-like surface design was created by diagonally interweaving load-bearing, smooth steel panels welded together to form a rigid form and glazed lightweight construction elements. Manufactured in Switzerland, it was transported in three parts to Liverpool, where it was assembled in just one night thanks to a sophisticated assembly plan.
Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern
1'200 tons of steel were skilfully processed for this idiosyncratic building, created by the Paris-based architect Renzo Piano. The largest of the three «waves» measures 70 m each in depth and width!
