Bridge award

PORT HENRY — Kevin Buch, field engineer with Flatiron Construction, recently accepted the 2012 Jeffrey J. Zogg Build NY Award for Flatiron’s work on the Lake Champlain Bridge that connects Essex County, N.Y., and Addison County, Vt. The award was presented at the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of New York State 26th annual statewide Construction Industry Conference held in Saratoga Springs.

The new bridge, with a signature network tied arch design, both preserves the historic integrity and aesthetic quality of the original bridge, while incorporating features that will contribute to a 75- to 100-year design life. The bridge’s main span is comprised of a steel-tied arch 402 feet long and 80 feet tall supported on fixed frames.

The arch provides a 75-foot navigational clearance and 300-foot-wide channel below. The new bridge has wider lanes to accommodate farm equipment, as well as sidewalks for pedestrians and wide shoulders for cyclists. The project also included construction of a 1,029-foot approach on the New York side and a 769-foot approach on the Vermont side and demolition of temporary causeways and ferry docks.

The Build New York Award winners are selected based on outstanding managing skills, imagination, overcoming challenging and unusual circumstances, scheduling accomplishments and project innovation by the contractor/manager and the entire project team including the project owner, architect, subcontractors and suppliers. All project entries were reviewed and judged by a 12-member jury of industry peers.

The AGC of New York State represents more than 600 members, 250 of which are general contractors engaged in public and private construction throughout New York State, and is the New York Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America. The AGC of America represents more than 7,000 general contractors nationwide.
