Hangingstone River Pedestrian Bridge

Fort McMurray, AB

On this project, dual 138-foot Glulam girders were used to support the bridge and members, while acting as the walls of the walkway.

With the Glulam members on a shallow curve, this created a modern low profile that nestles directly back into the landscape. Timber was chosen as a building material for both its fit with the natural surroundings as well as being cost-effective. Multiple openings were added to both sides of the girders to break up the face and allow visitors to look out at the river.
