What We’re Made Of

At Nature Bridges, we want to build you a bridge that will last a lifetime (or longer). In order to successfully do this for our clients, we must use special materials that make our structures strong and sturdy while also helping the environment. These materials include glulam, aluminum, steel, and fiberglass. Glulam Glulam is short for glued laminated timber, and is one of our strongest construction materials.

Preserving Nature’s Habitats and the Animals Within Them

Our New Smyrna Dunes project was a satisfying one to complete, and that’s not just because the views were great. The project took a year to complete, but we were able to create a beautiful walkway leading to one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. The sand dunes in New Smyrna Beach are a natural barrier, protecting homes and businesses from coastal water damage. As we began constructing this project using our Top Down Construction method, we noticed a few friendly animals in the area.         Beach Mice and Gopher Tortoises! These wonderful creatures call the dunes home, […]

Hurricanes can disrupt even the strongest of structures, but luckily, we prepare for these occurrences. Nature Bridges offers damage and hurricane repairs to your bridges, boardwalks, decks, docks, and anything of the sort. We know hurricanes are traumatic, especially when they affect something that is important to you. When damage strikes, give Nature Bridges […]
