Truss Bridge Pipe Rack
Gas Pipeline Crossing Truss Bridge
British Columbia


This Design-Build project included construction methodology, crane lift planning, engineered lift plans, truss bridge design, bearing designs, pipe connections, bearing design, as well as interfacing with the fabrication shop for delivery of native .dxf shop drawing files.

Working closely with the owner regarding two uncertified piers used for previous crossings, the new design required significant upgrades to the two main abutments, elevations and sag support for the (much) larger diameter pipe being installed.

Solution & Impact

The ultimate goal was to make this installation as cheap as possible for the Owner, simple for the fabricator, easy for the construction contractor, and feasible for the pipe installer – managing multiple stakeholders, and satisfying everyone’s needs.
