Pedestrian Bridges

At HHO, we are committed to developing infrastructure in communities which will improve the quality of life for all. We understand that pedestrian bridges play an important role in the social fabric of communities and bringing people together safely.

We have extensive experience in designing award-winning, creative and aesthetically pleasing pedestrian bridges that fulfil a functional need while becoming landmarks in their own right. We work closely with architects, developers and clients to produce a wellthought-out solution where special attention is paid to form and function. Our design and analysis capabilities typically consider, inter alia, accessibility requirements, vibration and dynamic responses, durability, constructability and aesthetics.
