Boardwalk in reclaimed tropical hardwood

In 2021, Rotor assisted developer Revive in finding a reclaimed material suited for installation as a 300m2 boardwalk. For the desing by Omgeving, planks out of tropical ship timber were found at Van Hameren Houthandel. The material, which is permanently available on the reclamation market, met the technical requirements easily; and a mock-up proved that its installation was feasible within the budgetary constraints. 

For those who want to discover what this materials feels like under their feet, the result is part of the landscaping of the Minerve development in Edegem, and is open to everyone.
