Islip High School Pedestrian Bridge – Islip, NY | York Bridge Concepts -Timber Bridge Builders

Islip High School Overview

York Bridge Concepts™ has partnered with The LandTek Group, Inc. and Islip High School to design & build a pedestrian bridge spanning 70 feet long by 9 feet wide. In need of a complete restoration, the institution’s original bridge was replaced by a unique York Timber Structure. The school can now boast its own one-of-a-kind Decero™ Designed Timber Pedestrian Bridge. With a unique color palette, this York Structure is a wonderful complement to the facilites and outdoor elements at Islip High School.

Client Testimonial

"Thank you for partnering with us on the design and build of Islip High School’s new Timber Pedestrian Bridge, structured to transport students from the school to the ball fields. LandTek Group, ‘the leader in our field’, with a specialization in sports facility design and construction, is thrilled to have worked with a like-minded corporation such as yours, where creative minds and swift hands design - and successfully build - exceptional structures. In need of a complete restoration, the institution’s original bridge was replaced by one of your unique, Decero™ designed structures, invigorating the scenery with a beautiful, seamlessly integrated pedestrian crossway. Islip High School has continuously strived to improve their facilities, receiving awards for most improved in the State of New York in 2003. We are proud to have participated in further developing their campus with your help. What a wonderful addition to a well deserving institution. Your conscientious build from deck level, protecting the treasured wetlands and allowing for environmental harmony, was required and successfully completed. Islip’s students, faculty and alumni will enjoy this crossing for generations to come!"
