Structal-Bridges, a division of Canam Group Inc., recently obtained two contracts totaling over $30M for projects in Ontario and Quebec.
The first contract is for the fabrication of steel components that will be used to replace the Burgoyne Bridge in St. Catharines, Ontario. This is a unique bridge as its structure is composed of box girders, the main span of which will be supported by a 410-ft. (125 m) arch fabricated from tubular sections.
Structal-Bridges will supply 2,830 tons of steel components for this 1,090-ft. (333 m) highway bridge. The girders will be fabricated at the Canam Group plant in Quebec City, Quebec, between summer 2014 and summer 2015 while deliveries will take place from fall 2014 to fall 2015.
Structal-Bridges was equally chosen to fabricate a 2,100-ton steel monocoque structure featuring an orthotropic-type upper deck for the new interchange on Saint-Jacques Street overlooking the Décarie Expressway, a structure that’s being built in the scope of the Turcot Interchange Reconstruction Project underway in Montreal, Quebec. This cable-stayed bridge will also include a steel tower as well as a complex anchorage system that will be part of the main structure, both of which will also be supplied by Structal-Bridges. The new structure will be 395 ft. (120 m) long and stand close to 50 ft. (15 m) tall.
The components required for this project are slated to be fabricated at the Quebec City plant from September 2014 to March 2015 and deliveries will be carried out between the spring and fall of 2015. Structal-Bridges will equally supply Goodco Z-Tech seismic isolators and modular expansion joints for this project.
“Structal’s broad expertise in managing complex projects coupled with our production capacity allowed us to position ourselves for obtaining these contracts. Our complementary products and services, such as erection, metalizing and Goodco Z-Tech structural bearings and expansion joints, acted to facilitate our customers’ search for suppliers that can meet their needs,” explained Robin Lapointe, Vice President, Structal-Bridges.
