Nuno Arkitektur has, in collaboration with Degree of Freedom, designed a bridge crossing the Sandvik river in Bærum. The bridge gives access to a new residential area on the east side of the river and forms an important link in the area’s cycle routes.
The existing bridge was a concrete arch bridge and the conservation authorities requested that the new bridge respected that. The design thus developed is a modern variant, but in steel.
Degree of Freedom has worked for Obos Nye Hjem during the initial phases, whilst the detailed design and the construction stages were carried out for Consto.
Bjørnegårdssvingen is a steel, arch bridge with a span of 20 m with a concrete deck. The bridge is designed according to the Handbook N400. The construction phase started in the summer of 2017 and was completed in the winter of 2019. The steel structure was produced in Romania. The steel arches were lifted by crane from the banks, and the concrete deck was cast using prefabricated concrete permanent formwork.
