A History of Heavy Metal.
For more than 30 years, Marcon has collaborated with constructors to produce complex metal components. We’ve enabled infrastructure to stand and span by engineering the details that enable dynamic movements and reinforce structural integrity.
Over the last two decades, we’ve emerged as a leading North American innovator of bridge products. Our implementations have led to new feats of innovation and have renewed the integrity of legacy structures.
Lions Gate Bridge
A fixture of the Vancouver skyline and feature of a leading motion picture group, the Lions Gate Bridge has one of the most iconic bridge profiles in North America. Over the past two decades, this 80-year-old suspension bridge has undergone significant rehabilitation with Marcon as the primary fabricator throughout.
Johnson Street Bridge
Marcon’s will to innovate is exhibited in what is now the largest bascule bridge in Canada. This drawbridge required a number of complex structural considerations to ensure swinging movement and an adjacent pedestrian walkway features an integrated LED handrail system for long-lasting functionality.
As the structural lifespan of legacy systems reach expiration, Marcon is regarded as a proven partner in rehabilitation and retrofitting. We have engineered seismic upgrades to bearings and joints and have designed protective systems that seamlessly integrate into architectural aesthetics.
