Roads and Bridges
Chantiers Chibougamau offers a range of turnkey services covering all the steps of road and wood bridge design and construction.
Working with large scale logistics chains where every extra day—or hour—can make all the difference is our bread and butter, Chantiers Chibougamau oversees the construction of dozens of kilometers of new roads, as well as winter maintenance on hundreds of others, and the installation of dozens of bridges every year.
The culture, experience, and expertise of our team set Chantiers Chibougamau apart as a company able to meet the highest standards of quality and performance.
As Stornoway Diamond Mining Company president Matt Manson put it, Chantiers Chibougamau can deliver results that make a difference for the customer.
“We’ve been able to take advantage of the down cycle:
equipment was cheaper and took less time to get to us,”
he said to LesAffaires.com.
“We ordered a bridge from Chantiers Chibougamau
and 10 days later it was already up!”
– Matt Manson, president, Stornoway Diamonds
For wooden bridges 25 meters or less, the first vehicles can start crossing less than a month after the order is placed.
Chantiers Chibougamau’s customers have one thing in common: they all operate in a ruthless competitive environment. For them, every dollar and every day counts. They choose our integrated approach because it allows them to meet their most ambitious goals.
Our hardwood and metal parts manufacturing plant is fitted with digital equipment that delivers a level of precision to within 0.1 mm. This allows us to deliver flawless products to our construction sites.
The versatility and effectiveness of Chantiers Chibougamau’s structural solutions make them ideal for the simplest to the most complex of projects. Although most often used in bridges with a clear span of up to 68 meters and able to support loads of up to 180 tons, Nordic hardwood has also been used for major structures on public roads (e.g., a four-span bridge with a clear span of 160 meters).
Today’s infrastructures have to be integrated seamlessly into ecosystems that serve many purposes, and Chantiers Chibougamau’s structural solutions offer unparalleled esthetic and practical appeal.
Well-designed wooden bridges (i.e., where structural components have no direct contact with water) are built to last—as evidenced by the many covered bridges still in operation today after more than a century of use.
Since hardwood is a carbon-negative material and Chantiers Chibougamau’s products are the result of rigorous environmental practices, our bridges actually help improve the carbon balance of customers who choose them.
