Accoya® vertical cladding chosen for the Tintra footbridge in Norway
Distributed by Woodlink, Accoya was chosen as the ideal material for the vertical cladding on a footbridge in Vossenvangen, Norway.
Situated over the River Vosso, maintenance was an integral issue during the pre-planning and construction of the pedestrian bridge. Combining strength, durability and minimal maintenance over the years, Accoya wood was the natural choice for Rintala Eggertsson Architects.
Constructed by IKM Steel & Facade, the project also won the Architizer A+ Award in the Transportation and Infrastructure category. Two other category winning projects included; The Royal Arena, Denmark (Jury Winner in the Sport and Recreation category) and City Hall Venlo, Netherlands (Jury and Popular Choice Winner in the Institutional-Government & Municipal Buildings category).
The Architizer A+ Awards champion the very best architectural projects from around the globe, and celebrate industry visionaries from across the fields of design and architecture. The awards are the largest of their kind and are judged by over 400 luminaries and thought leaders, including prominent members of the architecture community, as well as experts from the technology, art, fashion, and design industries.
