On behalf of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, Turner completed the revitalization of the Squibb Bridge in Brooklyn Heights, NY. The pedestrian bridge provides a direct connection from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1. The steel replacement bridge, designed by Arup is intended for complete functionality and longevity.
In order to begin the bridge’s construction the team faced a logistics challenge, to carefully remove the old bridge situated between the 10-story and six-story buildings. Extensive planning occurred to ensure a safe and efficient demolition. Over the course of 3-days, the team carefully removed 9-truss sections and an estimated 200,000 pounds of the wood/steel structure. Construction commenced over 7-months and was turned over to the community ahead of schedule and under budget.
