During a building renovation or new construction project, companies are often required to install a sidewalk bridge (also called a temporary shed) to protect pedestrians who need to walk under the contractor’s work area. The emergency installation of these bridges is also required if a building façade is unstable or a dangerous condition exists. Today, there are three main categories of bridges, including:
· Standard bridges: Often made from steel and/or wooden materials. These bridges may also feature silver cross braces and columns.
