Footbridge over the Bow, Banff, Canada

Set over the Bow River in the mountain setting of Banff is a slender 113m long timber bridge both serving pedestrian traffic and providing a sensitive sanitary crossing replacement. Its minimal form was designed to blend into the natural beauty of Canada’s first national park.

Completed in June 2013, the bridge was designed and constructed by StructureCraft Builders in collaboration with Fast + Epp Structural Engineers for the Town of Banff, under a design-build contract. Key to success of the project was careful attention to detailing, mitigation of dynamic behaviour, and a high degree of pre-fabrication.
