Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia, Gdansk and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
The new pedestrian bridge crosses over the railway tracks west of Steinberg train station. One of the most important features requested by the client is that the bridge had to be easy to take down and reuse in another location in the future. This meant a challenge in the design since it had to be a permanent structure, but with a certain provisional character.
The steel structure consists of five spans – a central span over the double rail tracks and four stair flights. Each span is simply supported at the columns via a site bolted connection. There are four intermediate pairs of support columns. The head of each column branches to support the stair landings. The supporting frame is made up of HUP sections. Each support structure is considered as single piece that can be shop welded, galvanised and then transported to the site.
The stairs and bridge deck are covered with timber decking. The steel plate slopes to allow for drainage to the joints at the supports. Illumination is integrated in the handrails.
