Professional Design-Build Services for New Vehicular Bridges
Our design-build process starts with evaluating your values and needs. First, we examine the context, the site, and how you intend to use the vehicular bridge(s). Then, we produce a design intent customized to these elements. Our bridge designs provide our clients architecturally stunning profiles and fresh color selections. Additionally, they are fully engineered by a structural engineer in your state. We pride ourselves in going the extra step in design. Because of this dedication, we are the premier timber vehicular bridge builder in the industry. We also have an extensive portfolio of pedestrian bridges, golf course bridges, timber boardwalks, and covered bridges.
Our construction process begins shortly after the design is finalized. First, our professional in-office construction team works to procure the materials, schedule our on-site construction, and coordinate with the bridge construction site to meet their needs. Next, we mobilize one of our expert field teams to your site to construct your bridge. As an expert bridge builder, we make sure our bridges are built with precision craftsmanship, advanced problem solving skills, and first-class material selections, in addition to, adhering to strict quality control measures. As a result, we produce complete vehicular bridges including solid substructure foundations and exquisite guide rails.
