Cabot Circus Bridge

The Cabot Circus retail development is visited by thousands of shoppers every week and is served by and adjacent multi-storey car park. To provide safe access between the car park and the retail area a new feature link bridge was designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre. SH Structures were awarded the contract to supply and install the new bridge at the same time we were also working on the developments gridshell roof. The new bridge takes the form of a curved plated structure topped with an inclined portal frame glazed roof. Installation took place during night time road closures to minimise disruption. Our scope of work included the detailed design, supply, manufacture and installation of the new bridge and internal finishes including the glazed roof.
