Schottenstein Real Estate Group has chosen FiberSPAN as part of its design for a network of walking trails for its apartment complex in Mason, Ohio, US.

“The developer needed an attractive structure that could support pedestrian traffic over a stream yet require no maintenance,” says Composite Advantage President, Scott Reeve. “They were also looking for a company that could manage all of the details associated with the project from coordinating permits to actual installation.”

Composite Advantage explains that the gray 40 ft. long by 8 ft. wide bridge was outfitted with black railing made from corrosion-resistant aluminium. FRP Constructors, a Composite Advantage partner, set the abutments by installing helical piles and pouring concrete. A telehandler lifted the prefabricated FiberSPAN bridge into place. Bridge plates at either end were bolted to the concrete. Installation, completed in August 2014, took less than two days.
