Think summer. You may envision images of beaches, sun, travel - or road construction. Most of us, rightly so, see summer as the season for road blocks and repairs. But when you're working on bridges, the decks are often the last pieces to drop into place. While rebar may be flying in July and concrete may be poured in August, bridge decks can't be installed until the dust clears, weeks or months later. And that, of course, is where we come in.
As pedestrian bridge deck manufacturers, the Composite Advantage team is working well into October, November, December and even January. These late fall/winter months create unique conditions for our installers - think freezing temps and loads of snow. And how best to convey to you, dear readers, our sometimes icy adventures? Videos.
According to Wyzol's The State of Video Marketing 2017, 79% of website visitors would rather watch a video than read text on a page. Additionally, 91% of consumers say they've watched a video to learn more about a product or service. So, rather than writing, I'll turn it over to video.
The following shorts feature brand new bridge decks, from start to finish. The first video shows the stacking, packing, shipping and installation of decks for the Columbia River Skywalk in Trail, BC. It concludes with shots of a very cold grand opening (see top photo for a sneak preview).
The second video shows the unique design features of the Neponset River Greenway pedestrian bridge deck, as well as its stacking, shipping and installation.
