Pedestrian footbridge in Aubervilliers

In anticipation of the 2024 Olympic Games, public authority Plaine Commune has entrusted a consortium led by Freyssinet in association with Lavigne & Cheron Architectes, Quadric, XtreeE and LafargeHolcim to design and build a 40-meter pedestrian bridge in Aubervilliers, whose deck will be made entirely with 3D-printed structural concrete. A world first.
Combining the highest technological expertise, this project paves the way for building complex architectural and structural elements with 3D-printed concrete and for developing bespoke and personalized solutions while keeping costs and lead-times under control.
