The Fabrication team have manufactured and installed what will be two of the more noticeable features from Blake’s involvement on the Queensferry Crossing.
The North Abutment enclosure structure
Working with architectural glazing specialists Glassal, Blake Group has assisted design, manufactured and installed these striking features, which provide the Abutment accesses at the North and South of the Bridge.
South Abutment entrance glazed canopy
These topside features, which extend to a little over 11m in length, 3m in width and 4m at their peak, will form a very proud reminder to all at Blakes of our significant involvement since the very first pre-construction stages of this iconic engineering project.
Tom Stewart of FCBC commented:
“Blakes have been involved in many aspects of this amazing project and the abutment glass canopies are a fine example of the precision design and execution required at the Queensferry Crossing”
