Bridge Builders™, the leader in timber bridge construction in the U.S., has a portfolio that includes work throughout the United States and as far away as the island of Guam. Currently the company is focusing on the continental United States. Tim Kris, Founder of Bridge Builders™, notes that some states require licensing for the construction of vehicular timber bridges, while some do not. Some of the states with license requirements where Bridge Builders™ holds licenses include Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and California. However, the company works throughout the entire country, knowing no limits and bringing its Concept to Completion© approach to all of its projects. Ultimately this means that, coast to coast, the highest quality in timber bridge construction is available.
Currently Bridge Builders™ is constructing the bridge at Nature Walk in Seagrove, Fl, the largest vehicular timber bridge ever constructed in the United States. Trellis covered and pedestrian friendly, on completion the Nature Walk Bridge will span an area of wetlands, keeping with the company’s reputation as an environmentally conscious bridge contractor. Construction began on this timber bridge last year, and the project has recently been expanded. There is minimal impact on the existing wetlands at the site and does not involve filling any wetlands. Moreover, the loading used for this bridge is fully capable of supporting any highway loading that would be encountered in normal traffic, which includes construction equipment, large fire trucks, loaded concrete trucks and service equipment.
Bridge Builders ™ and the people who make up the company and who ARE the company are committed both on a corporate and an individual basis to the quality and integrity of the projects they complete and in the preservation of natural environments.
