5 bridges, 5 months.

Our challenge
Build and install 5 suspension bridges ranging from 40 to 92 m, in the middle of winter - in only 5 months!

Our Solution
With 4 snowfalls during the build, and the coldest day hitting -6ÂșC, we successfully erected all 5 bridges inside the tight timeframe. Against the elements, our craftsmanship was upheld and delivered to our usual high standard.
