Links Bridges completed a very special bridge project for a prestigious Fortune 500 company. This company specializes in providing construction services and materials throughout the northeast of the USA. Three of the brothers who founded the company had passed on. Therefore, their successors decided to donate a ‘memorial’ bridge to the founders’ favorite golf course. Read on to learn more about this project. Find out why this reputable Fortune 500 company chose Links Bridges to build the memorial bridge.
One of a kind Fiberglass Bridge Design
The client selected our Hogan Bridge – an arched bridge with a stone-finish side. This bridge is made of 100% fiberglass. It also has a ‘concrete-finish’ deck, a ‘granite-finish’ curb and a stone fascia in the ‘rubble-style’.
Exceptional Customer Service & Affordability
Links Bridges staff visited the site early in the project. Then, our team determined that this new bridge could re-use the steel beams that were in place for the existing bridge. Consequently, saving the buyer several thousand dollars.
First of all, we had to manufacture a custom bridge that could the existing structural beams. Additionally, we needed to build a structure that could withstand vehicles weighing up to 14,000 Lbs., which is above the normal parameters for a golf course bridge.
Links Bridges designed custom & re-enforced deck panels to create an ‘arch’ effect over the existing flat steel beams.
Links Bridges had to create custom sizes for the stone fascia as well, so that it will fit with the terrain. Next, we added the ‘granite’ curbs in sections to allow for field installation. To conclude, we added an embossed memorial message dedicating the bridge to the honorees. This was positioned on the center section of the curbs, at each side.
