Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire

I & H Brown

In September 2011, I & H Brown’s Civil Engineering Division was commissioned to undertake a series of infrastructure works for the Copley Valley Regeneration Scheme at Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire. This design and build project comprised improvements to nearby roads (including widening and traffic signals), the construction of a new bridge over both the River Calder and the Hebble navigational canal, and the construction of an additional, double span bridge over the Calder. The total works package also included many other elements but it was with respect to the double span bridge that SUAVE was brought in to carry out a photographic survey.

The planned project duration was 33 weeks and, during this time, SUAVE made two visits – the first to capture work in progress and the second to document the bridges in their finished state. The high resolution photographs enabled the client to compile a very detailed record of the completed works and were suitable for use in the company’s promotional and reference materials.
