"The team was outstanding in collaborating to come up with a suitable method to install the bridge. Site constraints and the rail corridor environment was the key challenge. [...] The Metcalf team knew their cranes capabilities back to front which was essential in mitigating major risks and to set the project up for success.
David Chuong, Western Program Alliance
Senior Project Engineer
