Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Secretary of Transportation Leslie Richards joined National Park Service and other federal, state and local officials for a late-summer opening of the $9.2-million Sullivan’s Bridge. The 14-ft. wide, 604-ft. long bicycle and pedestrian trail structure spans the Schuylkill River in Valley Forge National Historical Park, near Philadelphia.
Denver, Penn.-based High Concrete Group played a key role in creating a “gravity defying” 92,000-sq.-ft., four-story office building in the heart of Philadelphia’s Navy Yard Corporate Center. World-class architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), based in Copenhagen and New York, designed the $34 million 1200 Intrepid to mimic the curves of the adjacent Central Green park. Challenged with this unique design opportunity, High Concrete Group’s engineering team developed a precast component system necessary to execute the curved façade.
