Bridging the gap at Manchester University

Posted on by in News

North Yorkshire-based Allerton Engineering has supplied three innovative bridges for an on-going construction project at Manchester University.

The specialist steelwork contractor has been working on behalf of Elland Steel Structures for the past seven months building three pedestrian bridges which will link existing university facilities to a new building.

Fabricated and welded entirely at the company’s Northallerton workshop, the bridges range in size from 10m to 23m in length and have been shaped in a complex tubular structure, giving them a heptagonal (seven-sided) appearance.

Paul Denning, Allerton Engineering Managing Director, said: “We are widely known for our ability to fabricate steel into almost any shape or size that is transportable. Crafting these pedestrian bridges for Manchester University has allowed us to further test and develop our expertise.”
