Innovative ACS design in Drenthe aims to thrill outdoor climbing enthusiasts

WEZUPERBRUG, THE NETHERLANDS, – Today, Laura Stikkelbroeck, the managing director of the outdoor climbing sport centre in Drenthe confirmed that the construction of the new outdoor climbing park will commence in April 2011 as planned. The climbing park will also feature the Netherlands’ longest zip-line, stretching over a distance of 1700 ft. “Drenthe will thus provide yet another sporting attraction,” says Stikkelbroeck, one of the initiators of the project which will be carried out in co-operation with co-initiator Kuierpadtien Leisure Centre based in Wezuperbrug. “Our aim is to attract customers from all over the Netherlands as well as from neighbouring countries like Germany.”

“Basically, we were looking for a way to provide our visitors with an new and memorable climbing experience,” explains Stikkelbroeck. “We had been kicking around some ideas but weren’t at all sure as to whether these concepts would be fit for purpose. Fortunately, Active Constructions proved to be the perfect partner. After a detailed assessment of the designated site they came up with a solution that was totally sound. Both technically and from a business point of view. We were very impressed. ”

“What makes ACS one of the leading designers of high ropes course and climbing parks in Europe is not only the detailed preliminary assessment of the designated location but also our strategy to come up with a solution specifically tailored to both the client’s wishes and the requirements of the site, “ says Kess-Jan Verwaal, head designer at ACS. “Innovation for us means to always keep an open mind and not to dismiss ideas or concepts simply because they don’t seem to be feasible at the time. We keep looking into them until we’ve found a solution the customer is happy with.”

“Visitor climbing safety is something we won’t compromise on,” Stikkelbroeck categorically declares. “Which was another reason why we chose Active Constructions. ACS has a convincing track record when it comes to providing the latest safety technology available on the market. All equipment not only fully complies with the current industry Health and Safety legislation but also meets the tough quality requirements issued by the VEBON, the ECRA and the IAPA. Moreover, operational training courses for our staff are also part of the ACS service package.”

The main construction material of the new climbing park is untreated Douglas fir, known for its strength and durability, thus ensuring the site’s low ecological impact. The high ropes climbing park comprises various course layouts providing different difficulty levels as well as an innovative adventure climbing tower. And the closing activity will be another highlight: a ride on what will be officially the longest zip-line on Dutch soil.
