MC Ironworks (MCIW) is proud to announce being part of the team that won a National Steel Bridge Alliance Merit Award in the category of Special Purpose Bridges. The award was for the Hillhouse Pedestrian Bridges at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
John Cancelliere, president and chief executive officer said, “We were excited to be part of this project. It is a beautiful, modern twist to a historical 19th century-style, lattice truss bridge design created and patented in 1820 by New Haven architect, Ithiel Town.”
The Hiilhouse Pedestrian Bridges team consisted of designers: Guy Nordenson and Associates, New York, NY, architects: Pelli Clarke Pelli, New Haven, CT, and fabricators: Sure Iron Works, Brooklyn, NY and MC Ironworks, Bath, PA.
