Franklin County, FL (PRWEB) October 5, 2008
Nature Bridges (naturebridges.com), specialists in pedestrian bridges and boardwalk construction, announced today it has completed the Alys Beach Educational Trail System along the Gulf coast in Northwest Florida.
Nature Bridges utilized the top-down construction method to construct a wooden boardwalk so residents and visitors could enjoy the nature preserve within the Alys Beach community. The boardwalk is six feet wide and 1,820 linear feet of elevated pedestrian boardwalk with handrails and curbing. The materials used to build the boardwalk were Master Deck, cypress handrails and cable rail system.
With top-down construction, all large equipment stays on top of the new structure during the entire building process. This method provides a long-lasting, durable structure and helps to preserve the surrounding plant and animal habitats during and after construction.
Alys Beach is a 158-acre community, master planned by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company that includes 1,500 feet of beach front and a 20-acre nature preserve.
