Because the old bridge crossing the school yard of the Montessori school in Krefeld was not repairable, it was replaced by a new timber construction. The glulam beams are protected by a lateral cladding made of larch and a zinc sheet metal on the top. The cladding continues up to the handrail to form a proper guardrail for the primary school children. The school is now provided with a good looking and durable construction.
