As a single source Design-Build partner, we bring your
pedestrian bridge project from concept to reality across North America.
The Elegant Span.
A bridge is pure structure, and thus as those whose first impulse is engineering, it is our delight to see how effortlessly we can span the gap. Whether it be river or highway, StructureCraft partners with municipalities and private owners to design and build your footbridge.
We take our Engineer-Build model one step further, delivering your project as the Design-Build General Contractor. We believe footbridges can be both beautiful and functional, and employ the principles of prefabrication to ensure a quality, cost-effective end result.

Our Footbridge ProcessSpeak with an Engineer
Following our Engineer-Build delivery model, we work directly with the client to both design and build your pedestrian bridge to the unique constraints of the particular site.
On pedestrian bridge projects, we serve as the Design-Build General Contractor, managing all aspects of the structure, foundation, abutments and site, including all required consultants and subcontractors.
We also oversee any sensitive environmental aspects associated with the project.
Feasibility StudyWe provide initial feasibility assessments and early assistance to establish realistic budgets, typically at no cost. This often includes conceptual drawings and renders required for early stakeholder engagement.
Conceptual DesignWe are architecturally minded engineers and will work with you to develop a bridge concept that suits the site context, typically focusing on using natural materials like timber where sensible.
Detailed DesignOur in-house structural engineering and 3D design teams will lead the design effort, coordinating with our consulting partners (e.g. Civil, Environmental, Geotechnical, Landscape Architect) to provide a comprehensive design package.
Pre-Construction ManagementOur estimators and project managers provide progressive costing, constructability, schedule, and logistics planning, starting in the early phases of design.
Modeling & Shop DrawingsAll projects include 3D parametric construction modeling of the bridge substructure and superstructure, with full fabrication and erection drawings.
Fabrication & ProcurementWe fabricate and pre-assemble the bridge components in our 60,000 sf. facility in Abbotsford, BC, with stringent QA/QC protocols.
Project ManagementPM services are continued from the conceptual design through to construction, with detailed planning and management of fabrication, procurement, pre-assembly, shipping, staging, and site installation.
ConstructionAs the Design-Build General Contractor, we take on all aspects of the construction, including, environmental protection, earthworks, foundations, abutments, superstructure, and landscape.
StructureCraft’s first instinct is engineering, thus it is our delight to see how effortlessly we can span the gap. Whether it be river or highway, we partner with municipalities and private owners to design and build your footbridge.
StructureCraft has a unique and value-laden business model. Because engineering and the building process are so closely linked in the way we do things, we have decided to call our primary delivery method Engineer-Build.
This draws on the historical model of “Master-Builder”; whereas engineers who love architecture and good design, we take responsibility for building the structures we design.
When it comes to footbridges, we take this model one step further, delivering your project as the Design-Build General Contractor.
We believe footbridges can be both beautiful and functional, and employ the principles of prefabrication to ensure a quality, cost-effective end result. We bring responsibility for all the steps of design and construction under one roof. This synthesises and smooths out the building process.
Avoid uncertainty about the cost and quality of your footbridge structure. Instead, unify the engineering and building of your footbridge so you can fulfill your creative vision on time and budget.Speak with an Engineer

MORE ABOUT OUR FOOTBRIDGE DELIVERY MODEL
Creative, Buildable Solutions
Holistic, experienced design from the concept phase to create practical solutions that consider architectural and constructability constraints.
Pedestrian Bridge Design + Engineering
We take full design responsibility, from concept through to final engineering - including all civil, landscape, hydrotechnical, geotechnical, and environmental disciplines, engaging subconsultants as required.
Early Price Commitment
As the builder, we commit to pricing early in the design process, providing early risk transferral and minimal change orders.
Schedule reduction from single party responsibility, minimized inefficiencies, no engineering duplication, and early procurement.
