Installation:

July 25, 1998

Contech installed 54 CON/SPAN® units in one day as part of an 844-foot long stream enclosure. The structure enabled the development of a commercial shopping center at Polaris Towne Center in Ohio. The stream enclosure increases the available space for the construction of a parking lot to serve the new facility. The structure was designed on a curved alignment and set on a concrete slab invert. Installed in three phases, the finished structure consisted of 107 pieces.

“The pre-planning in the design facilitated the erection process” said Contech Structural Engineer Phil Creamer. “Our design included two cable lift points per unit, as opposed to four. Hauling two small-span units per truck also sped up the installation process” The CON/SPAN system bid against a four-sided box system and a low-profile metal arch.
