Two large glulam girders form the main construction and are supported by steel frames within the cross section. The glulam girders are protected from weathering by a lateral cladding and a titan zinc sheet on the top.

Two cross girder levels provide space for crossing pedestrians and media routing. Profiled sheet metal create a durable non slip decking.

A steel parapet with horizontal steel wires functions as guardrail.
