With regard to the evaluation of the objects submitted, originality, creativity, innovation as well as the use of new technologies were the focus by the seven-person jury, which were presided by Dipl.-Ing. Karl Wiebel. The company group Max Bögl won the first prize with its Segmental Bridge, which is Bögl’s innovative new development.
Bögl’s Segmental Bridge is a new type of prefabricated construction. This system shows a high degree of prefabrication, very short construction periods and the drive way needs no sealing and pavement surface. A characteristic feature is the clear separation of the longitudinal structural system regarding longitudinally and transversely prestressed pavement slabs. These slabs, which are supported on airtight welded boxed steel girders and are pre-tensioned by means of external prestressing in the sideway areas, can be driven on immediately and can be replaced easily. The result is a low-maintenance bridge construction whereby advantages of serial fabrications concerning structural components take its effect.
