Bellapart has successfully completed its latest construction - a lightweight steel and glass bridge connecting the two buildings of the Champalimaud Foundation's biomedical research facility in Lisbon, Portugal.

The bridge was inaugurated on October 5th by the President of the Republic of Portugal. The bridge consists of a steel and glass structure, 21 metres long, with post-tensioned cables providing stiffness along the length. Every two metres a vertical ring supporting the enclosing glass envelope is braced with compression members.
