Northview Christian Life Church
S & B Construction
August 01, 2005
North Beach is Northview Christian Life Church’s unique teen hangout specifically designed to appeal to young people. To create an entrance with visual impact, the church decided to incorporate a Continental pedestrian truss bridge as part of the design. Contech Construction Products Inc. worked with the general contractor and church officials to develop a suitable look to the bridge. The bridge design evolved over several weeks and ultimately ended up as a tall KeystoneTM bowstring structure with some special features.
The 50-ft. x 12-ft. steel structure was installed over a shallow drainage ditch and painted a custom color. In addition to the custom color, it also features stainless steel cable side rails and a cast-in- place concrete deck that was stained to match the surrounding sidewalk.
S & B Construction of Indianapolis, Indiana, was the general contractor for the project. The bridge was delivered and installed in less than a day.
