Golden Gate Bridge - Physical Suicide Deterrent System
San Francisco, California
Cost analysis support
Golden Gate Bridge, originally built in 1937, is internationally renowned as one of the greatest suspension span structures ever built. A national landmark, the bridge is a critical public structure, carrying over 40 million vehicles per year, as well as a prime tourist destination, with millions crossing by foot or bicycle each year.
The project scope includes the installation of a Physical Suicide Deterrent System on the east and west sides, for approximately the full length of the Golden Gate Bridge, installation of the Wind Retrofit on the west side of the main span of the Suspension bridge, and installation of the Traveler Access System and Fixed Charging Station Platforms on the Suspension Bridge. Completion of this project requires state-of-the-art structural steel fabrication and construction technology. Safety is the highest priority as the work is conducted in a harsh marine and coastal environment over the water of the Golden Gate Strait and under a canopy that accommodates millions of tourists, pedestrians, and bicyclists each year. Dabri, Inc. provided change management and cost analysis support services during the construction phase.
