Masterplanning studies, technical advice, the management of an international construction team on site.
Study on the entire town territory
Our task began in 2013 in Trysil, with the aim of designing a development Masterplan that meets the very ambitious objective set by the client: to become the best mountain biking destination in Scandinavia. A real challenge that we were delighted to rise to!
That year we put forward the overall positioning and the development projects, mixing new creations and improving existing ones. The construction phase began in 2014 starting with a relatively short initial tranche of work. 2015 and 2016 were two full years of construction during which we managed to put in place an international team of 10 to 15 people. A special system was put in place with a detachment of three people from our French team for six months. The first results (in 2015) exceeded all expectations with a huge degree of customer satisfaction. This continued in 2016 with the management of a larger team (Norwegian, Swedish, Australian, English, Canadian and French) and the construction of new layouts. These include year-round cross-country trails, one of the longest flowtrails in Europe, the enduro, the rework of “old school” XC trails, an initiation area and a complete bike park, with initiation area, jump line, asphalt pumptrack (see the dedicated sheet)… a huge and comprehensive complete area!
To meet the requirements of such a project we took particular care in the sustainability of the paths and the landscape aspect: Trysil really understood that these concepts are essential to creating successful MTB facilities. In addition to this technical role was our role as an advisor to put in place the services and maximise the economic benefits of the product.
To date, after only two years of work, the Trysil Bike Arena has become the new Norwegian benchmark for mountain biking and the project is still ongoing…
For this short story, in 2016 we received 1st prize awarded by Cluster Montagne in the International Mountain category, which honours the best project by a French company abroad.
