Scaffolding Engineering Case Study

Custom Manufactured Bridge Stair Towers, Bridge Tower Scaffolding and Custom Platforms

Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC contracted Universal Manufacturing Corp. to design, engineer and manufacture bridge stair towers, stair lifting rigs and custom platforms to accommodate required heights and base cap placement on 68 individual bridge piers for the New NY Bridge.

Universal also engineered and manufactured a bridge tower scaffolding "Stair Lifting Rig" which allows for a maximum 50' high Universal bridge stair tower section to be safely lifted and transported into place. In addition, Universal engineered and manufactured custom platforms, known as the Grout & Pre-Cast Platforms, which are fabricated custom platforms to allow for safe working conditions on pre-cast caps. "Lifting Units" were also manufactured by Universal Manufacturing to allow for safe transport and placement for each of the custom platforms.

The New NY Bridge is a 3.1- mile twin span cable-stayed bridge over one of the widest points of the Hudson River. This makes it the largest bridge construction project in New York's History. The bridge is being constructed next to the existing Govenor Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Toll Bridge, connecting Westchester County with Rockland County NY in the Lower Hudson Valley. The bridge construction completion date is 2018.
