Jacobs’ Clyde Footbridge

Jacob’s Clyde Footbridge:

This project is one of our newer projects which can be delivered over 5 days. It is the result of the ExpLearn Scotland’s development of a current Masters program where students were asked to look at a concept design for a Footbridge over the Clyde. Jacob Consultant Engineers then further designed this concept as a project.
The participants create a  3 dimensional structure from 2 dimensional drawings by taking on functional roles within their construction company to deliver a 
12m Footbridge with an impressive access ramp. Piled foundations are initially sunk with the pile caps also forming the foundations which are cast in concrete. 2 structural steel beams are located onto bolts prior to the composite deck being installed and concrete poured.
Pre Site work:
  • Health and Safety briefings
  • Risk Assessments
  • Method Statements
  • Daily Activity Briefings
  • Tool Box Talks
  • Cost Control
  • Estimating
  • Quality Control
  • Planning
This project involves:
  • Site investigation work
  • Design work
  • Setting out
  • Excavation
  • Piling
  • Levelling
  • Trenching
  • Steel fixing
  • Formwork manufacturing
  • Concrete
  • Composite Deck Fabrication
  • Working at Height
All our projects ensure that the participants further develop their transversal skills throughout the experiential learning activity in which they not only turn their theory into practice they enhance their own employability skills
