Fall River Bridge
Fall River, MA United States | 1996
With the Epic Campus being located in Wisconsin, it meant the structure would be constantly exposed to the elements. The coating durability of hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) could stand the test of time through the snow and ice season. The addition of paint on top of the galvanizing will not only extend the service life of the galvanized structure but also allows the owner to maintain a color scheme that blends with the scenery, including the cedar railing and decking. HDG was extremely easy to specify with only minor fabrication changes to create vent holes for proper drainage. The initial cost of HDG has been proven to be competitive with other coating systems. HDG was chosen due to sustainability and life-cycle costs with little or no maintenance expected for many years.

The architect and fabricator both try to incorporate sustainable concepts in all of their projects. The galvanizer was notified in advance that this would be a duplex system and necessary measures were taken to ensure a quality product was delivered. With Epic being on the leading edge of medical software, they understand how sustainability and long lasting quality creates value to future generations. Turnaround time from the galvanizer exceeded customer expectations. The paint over HDG looks terrific and blends well with the surrounding environment.
