In 2016 the practice, working in collaboration with Ney & Partners and Adamson Associates was shortlisted for the RIBA competition to design two new crossings over the River Orwell in Ipswich. In total five designs were required: two for each crossing and a further design for the renovation of an existing swing bridge over the entrance to the Neptune Marina.
Bridge A totalled 800m in length and was required to open in the centre to allow tall ships to enter the port. The shorter Bridge B crossed a tidal side branch of the river, and opening and fixed options were requested.
The competition was won by Foster & Partners.
