Spences Bridge Inspection - British Columbia, Canada

Contractor: Buckland & Taylor, Ltd. – Bridge Engineering
Facility Owner:

Working over fast moving water, in extreme weather conditions with an active railway corridor and no permanent power or light….no problem. With the expertise of four Spider riggers, two 30 ft modular swing stages powered by 1000lb hoists were moved across the entire 700 ft span of the bridge, enabling two on-site engineers to inspect the piers and the underside of the bridge, which the Ministry of Transportation closed for the project. Two rolling towers were engineered to support both stages simultaneously, and on-site generators powered the stages through the absence of a readily-available power supply. The project was completed in just 10 days, 4 days ahead of schedule, resulting in a 30% labor reduction and significant onsite savings to the contractor.
