Foundations for Pedestrian Bridge – Théâtre de la Dame de Cœur
Installation of a pedestrian bridge and an approach ramp 150 feet above a body of water.
The Pieux Vistech St-Hyacinthe team was given the mandate to lay the foundations of a pedestrian bridge for the Théâtre de la Dame de Cœur. This 150-feet long bridge will cross the body of water you see in this picture. This is a project of great complexity requiring a lot of engineering and site supervision, but Pieux Vistech St-Hyacinthe is more than ready to meet this challenge.
This is the beginning of the project: the first piles that will support the bridge are transported to the project site.
The first foundations of the bridge have just been laid. A lot of work remains to be done for Vistech St-Hyacinthe, but the team is confident of delivering results that meet the customer's expectations.
To complete the project, a crane weighing more than 770 000 lbs had to be approached as close as possible to the bank in order to cross the structure. This was not an easy task ...!
The project is progressing well, the foundations will soon be ready to receive the bridge.
A glance at the bridge moved by the crane. It will soon rest on the piles installed by Vistech St-Hyacinthe on the other side of the body of water.
We are almost there! The crane is completing its work.
A closer look at our part of the equation of this wonderful project.
Our slogan is "Starting Off on a Solid Foundation", and this structure makes no exception to that.
The project is in its finishing stage. Good work to all the Vistech St-Hyacinthe team!
