Signature Bridges

HEB's structural engineers have been designing unique signature bridges for clients throughout northern New England since 1974. Our bridges incorporate our clients' desire for a showcase structure, reflecting a particular area, theme, or need. We utilize existing site features, client and community input, and budgetary considerations to create a project which will enhance the area and meet the needs of the community.


Signature bridges can improve the visual and aesthetic quality of a downtown area and create stunning gateways to a nature setting. Each of our bridges complements the site while providing a much-needed pathway for pedestrians or vehicular traffic.


Our signature bridge clients are often committee-led organizations, and include people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. HEB gathers input and synthesizes it into a variety of schematic designs which explore bridge types, construction cost options and possible additional funding opportunities. Feedback from our clients and local communities is critical to determining the final design selection which will then move through design, permitting and construction stages.

Let HEB design a showcase bridge for your community!
