Super-light structures in form of deck elements have been used for the first time in a building to construct indoor pedestrian bridges. Examples of connections to external structures and other super-light deck elements are given along with other details. Other examples on the great versatility of the super-light slab element are element size, which have greatly reduced the total number of elements the pedestrian bridges consist of. The application also demonstrated the ability to control the path that the forces will take in the element. The deck elements are for example fully prepared at the factory for sustaining concentrated forces from single point bearings.
