June 10, 2013

The Jacques Chalban-Delmas Bridge was featured in the latest issue of Civil Engineering Magazine, which is published by the American Society of Civil Engineering. The article is called Building the “Bridge Beautiful” in Bordeaux.

H&H provided conceptual design, detailed final design, and construction support and supervision for the lift bridge mechanization and operating systems, working in conjunction with the Vinci Group, the Design-Build Contractor, and the Design Consortium of EGIS Jean Muller International; Michel Virlogeux; and Lavigne-Cheron Architects. The design resulted in a highly efficient system that allowed for light appearance of the bridge elements and towers. The bridge opened on March 16th, 2013.
