While the science and methods of modern engineering are becoming increasingly intricate and specialized, building a 215-foot pedestrian bridge isn’t really all that different than the kinds of Lego© constructions we all made as children. The scale is larger, but the fundamentals are the same: find (or make) the pieces you’ll need and fit them together step-by-step.
That’s what we took away from this footage, provided by SRM Development, of the pedestrian bridge at Google’s Kirkland campus. The bridge connects the current campus to the second phase, a 484,000-sf, two-story office complex, which is currently under construction. The footage was shot with an aerial drone, which provides a unique point of view as crews erect the steel framing and place concrete slabs. Enjoy!
