General Motors Assembly Plant

Pedestrian Bridge

About Project

Due to a change in production, General Motors required the placement of a large number of workers into a new area of their truck plant. The solution involved relocating employee parking across the road from the plant. This necessitated the construction of a new pedestrian bridge. There were only four months before the bridge was needed, with construction to start in January. The schedule was tight and complicated by an extensive number of tasks including; concrete towers, suspended concrete slab on deck, bridge trusses, roofing, janitorial facilities, security offices, architectural glazing, masonry lobby, and new road accesses. GM engineers and senior managers were skeptical that this job could be brought in on time. Cold weather and steel delivery problems made the work even more difficult. However, the bridge was successfully completed on time.
