Huesker Introduces GeoDuct™: A Circular Viaduct Developed in Interaction with Nature
Infrastructure projects have large ecological footprints with an environmental impact due to the extraction, processing and transport of resources and materials. However, large parts of the existing Dutch infrastructure are due to be replaced or renovated in the near future. The demand for innovative solutions is becoming increasingly urgent, especially with the national ambition from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management to be energy neutral by 2030. Architectural studio ZJA, in collaboration with Iv-Infra, Dura Vermeer, Geotec Solutions, HUESKER Nederland and Ploegam BV have jointly developed a groundbreaking solution: the circular viaduct called GeoDuct™.
