"Lean Miracle" wins innovation prize

The textile concrete bridge, developed by Max Bögl and solidian GmbH and awarded the Concrete Components Supplier Industry Innovation Prize, is the first of its kind in the world to do completely without steel. Thus the pedestrian bridge is not only amazingly light, but also almost maintenance-free - and facilitates the crossing of the Ebingern by its finely structured and therefore slip-resistant surface.
