At times we drive our factory technicians ‘around the bend’ by taking on “replica” of some pretty non-standard bridge projects. The factory team loves the challenge, but at the same time, they take great pride in the volume of their output and some projects really do slow them down.
A very reputable construction company, Brenner Builders from Bedford, NY approached us with a challenge. They had a client who had a bridge that they really liked but it was ‘finished’. They wanted to replace it with another one just like it – but in FRP so they would never have to replace it again.
Brenner Builders sent us these 2 pictures.
This was obviously a very unique bridge and did not match any of the models that we have tooled up to supply. However, we love a challenge.
Our factory technicians take a lot of pride in producing bridges that are architecturally accurate and, in the case of a ‘replica’ like this one, in attention to all of the details. It took a little longer than we would have hoped but the picture below – which shows the bridge in the factory crated for shipment – shows an incredibly accurate reproduction.
Brenner Builder’s client was apparently very privacy-conscious so we never did get a picture of the final installation. We did however hear that they were ‘in awe’ of the result – so true to the original.
