The project involved replacing the existing superstructure of the Devils Hopyard wooden covered bridge and minor site improvements.  The scope of work included the demolition of the existing superstructure, restoration of existing W8 steel beams and base plates and replacement of the superstructure.  Work also included tree clearing, protection of existing plantings, concrete retaining walls, erosion and sediment controls, stone dust walking trails, and stone wall restoration. 

How did we add value to the construction process?

Our team successfully managed the project under budget, demonstrating careful financial stewardship and efficiency in resource allocation. This achievement was particularly noteworthy as the contract was awarded as a lump sum, highlighting the Team’s ability to optimize costs without compromising on quality. 

How did you advocate for the client?

Our role involved preserving the client’s interests throughout the project. We ensured that the proposed changes, such as the replacement of steel beams, were not only in the best interest of the construction process but also aligned with the client’s goals.
