BRIDGING THE GAP

BRIDGING THE GAP

 

Innovation is sometimes as simple as bringing big ideas from large projects to smaller towns with big needs. In Las Cruces, New Mexico, a town of around 100,000 residents. In Las Cruces, New Mexico, a community of around 100,000, the city’s oldest high school complex needed to remain an educational foundation, but also a cornerstone to connect the community socially and safely. When the footprint for a major renovation and expansion of the high school stretched across a major road, school officials needed to bridge the gap – literally and figuratively – and they needed to do so without disruption. Sundt and a joint venture partner built the bridging structure on a nearby site and then installed it in a single day.

 

The innovative approach took months of planning but, as a result, one of the busiest roadways in Las Cruces was closed for less than 24 hours while the new structure was carefully installed with specialized equipment.
