Museum of Flight


Apex built a 360′ long pedestrian bridge that connects the Museum of Flight Buildings and spans East Marginal Way in Seattle. It is an eye catching icon in the industrial area where the museum is located. The bridge was erected in two sections with minimum clearance between buildings and beneath live high voltage power lines. Erection and AESS compliant welds were complete in one 20 hour shift in order to accommodate the City of Seattle’s road closure and lighting constraints. This project was awarded an AISC IDEAS award, recognizing projects for Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel.
