Nature Bridges is an award-winning design and construction company specializing in custom bridge building. Recognized as one of the few top-down construction companies, our building method is environmentally-friendly and allows for the construction of timber bridges in ecologically sensitive areas, including wetlands and beaches. We understand the negative impact construction can have on the environment, which is why we use construction methods that will preserve your property’s natural habitats and landscaping. With Nature Bridges, you don’t have to choose between a new bridge and preserving your property’s environment, you can have both.
What is Top-Down Construction?
A top-down construction method is exactly what it sounds like, building permanent structures from the top to bottom. At Nature Bridges, we use a top-down construction method to ensure no heavy equipment comes in contact with the ground during construction. Instead, top-down construction uses lightweight hydraulic impact and material handling equipment that stays on top of the structure during construction, eliminating damage to vegetation and wildlife habitats.
Nature Bridges uses our top-down construction process for most of our timber bridge projects. Whether you need a golf cart bridge or a walkway for dunes on a beach, we take many precautions to prevent any damage from construction to your property. Our construction professionals have experience working in the most sensitive environments on projects of all shapes and sizes. Along with preserving the environment, our top-down construction method provides lower permitting and construction costs than that of conventional construction companies.
We develop strategic construction plans to meet the needs for a diverse group of clients. Our company retains frequent and transparent communication with our clients through every step of the construction process. Our highly trained team is prepared to receive feedback from clients at any point in time to ease any concerns they may have. Top-down construction can put you at ease knowing that there will not be any damage to your property due to construction.
