Ave Maria University New Bridge Utilized by Students and Faculty

The collaboration between Ave Maria University and York Bridge Concepts™ will continue contributing to the education and development of Ave Maria University’s campus.

York Bridge Concepts™ has unveiled its most recent Decero™ Designed York Timber Pedestrian Bridge for Ave Maria University, located 17 miles east of Naples, Florida. Ave Maria University is a vibrant institution located in beautiful Southwest Florida, which is committed to offering one of the finest classical liberal arts curricula available, as well as opportunities for specialized study in all of the sciences and humanities. A stunning architectural landmark, the University's unique 182’ long pile-supported York Timber Bridge has an 85PSF loading capacity with elegant 42” timber pedestrian splinter-free hand rails, exclusively designed for Ave Maria University through York’s Decero™ Design Approach.

As the Premier Timber Bridge Design & Build Firm, York Bridge Concepts™ has mastered the art of combining longevity with aesthetics to provide unique and durable crossing solutions throughout its 31 year history. This York Timber Pedestrian Bridge has become the new attraction at the University, adding immeasurable value to the educational establishment founded by Tom Monaghan. The pedestrian boardwalk will be utilized by students and alumni to connect a prayer garden to nearby campus buildings. Throughout the construction process, YBC implemented its unmatched standards of environmental protection, utilizing deck level construction to cross Lake #7 at Ave Maria ensuring that no piece of equipment or machinery harmed any of the natural elements.

The collaboration between Ave Maria University and York Bridge Concepts™ will continue contributing to the education and development of Ave Maria University’s campus. The staff at Ave Maria have introduced this friendly, accessible structure to their students — a combination of warm, earthy tones which includes the unique metal pickets that complement the surrounding campus and environment. Michael Mastandrea, Construction Manager for Ave Maria, has noted that he has been pleased during the construction phase and enjoyed teaming with YBC’s construction crew.
