A&A Consultants, Inc. (A&A) provided structural and civil engineering and construction coordination for a public pedestrian riverwalk, aligned and integrated with the Station Square Bessemer Court development complex.
This paved and well-lit river walkway provides connection to miles of multi-river trail development. A&A also provided structural design for the substructure along the Monongahela River at Station Square. The tower is supported on deep foundations consisting of concrete-filled steel pipe piles that support a two span pedestrian bridge, connecting the tower to Bessemer Court.
A&A’s specific tasks included the study of various alternatives for bridge types,
length and location and the design of the pedestrian bridge. A&A’s innovative design,
incorporated an elevator into the abutment, allowed accessibility, saved money and
improved the bridge’s aesthetics.
