Because Each Bridge is Unique
The role of the pedestrian bridge is evolving beyond basic functionality to include recreational/fitness activities, tourism and to enhance the visual appeal of its surroundings. At Valmont® SM, we understand the unique impact a pedestrian bridge has on its community, and partner with you to co-engineer, manufacture, install and maintain your custom solution.
At Valmont® SM, we start by co-engineering a bridge to meet your unique needs. We work with you on criteria like:
- Requirements—We start with the basics, understanding the primary and secondary objectives, site, length, width, environmental impact, etc
- Function—We look at deck type, finishes, safety systems and camber to ensure the bridge meets a multitude of requirements for many different kinds of people
- Design—In addition to various design codes, considerations like load factors (including dead, live, seismic and, in some cases, stream force) and myriad other details must be considered
Once you approve the design, we manufacture your pedestrian bridge to exacting specifications in our production facilities. We then oversee delivery and installation, simplifying the entire process for you.
