Halifax Harbour Bridges (HHB) seeks qualified contractor to help extend the life of bridge infrastructure

Halifax Harbour Bridges (HHB), owner-operator of two large cable suspension bridges in Nova Scotia, is looking for a qualified contractor to help extend the life of these two critical pieces of infrastructure.

About the Project: Their immediate goal is to find a competent general contractor to remove the existing coatings system to bare steel, identify and carry out the required steel work, and implement a corrosion protection system for the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge, to provide 25 years of coating service life.

The Steel Repairs and Coating Program includes the following bridge components:

  • Two main towers (each 99.19 meters tall)
  •  A steel pier (30 meters tall)
  • DCB-D6 Truss Spans (280m long)
  • D6 to Abutment Girder Spans (160m long)
  • Halifax Girder Spans (80m long)

The Tender Scope will include the two main towers, PierD1, and Truss Spans DCB to D3 for an expected 3 years Contract. Please see the attached General Arrangement.
