Our client entrusted us with the mandate to produce 168 girders, each 60 to 100 feet long and weighing 55 to 85 tons (55,000 kg to 85,000 kg), to serve as a structure for the deck of a new bridge in Montreal. The challenges of this project were, without a doubt, the size and weight of the parts to be manufactured, the quantity and the tight schedule. This was also our first infrastructure project of this magnitude.
To carry out this impressive project, we almost doubled the size of our fabrication plant, increasing it by 4,000 square meters (40,000 sq. ft.) and installed specialized equipment for assembly, mechanized welding, sandblasting and handling of the girders. We also implemented quality standards from the Ministry of Transport and formed a working team of 100 people dedicated to this project.
Thanks to the total commitment of our teams dedicated to this major infrastructure project, we completed and delivered quality girders in the required time.
