Indiana University Hillside Hall Pedestrian Bridge

Bloomington, Indiana

The architect presented design solutions with associated costs to complete a cost-effective pedestrian bridge on a condensed schedule. American Structurepoint created a feasibility report with conceptual designs that presented ideas and costs for the replacement of the pedestrian bridge at Hillside Hall. The project included demolition of the existing structure and coordination of power and data connections along the underside of the bridge. Once a cost-effective design was reached, the architecture team worked on a fast-track schedule to ensure construction would be substantially complete prior to summer semester classes. Maintaining the schedule was critical to the project’s success, since the bridge is vital to pedestrian circulation and access to Hillside Hall by students and faculty.
