We are delighted to be recognised in the American Institute of Steel Construction Bridge Awards. BEAM Architects were Lead Architect for the new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge in Washington DC and assisted Arup during the construction stage of the International Gateway Bridge in Long Beach California. Both structures are the winners in the Major Span category.
More information is available at the AISC website here.
BEAM has been commissioned as Specialty Bridge Architect for the design of the replacement Burnside Bridge in Portland Oregon. BEAM will work closely with Mutnomah County and local engineering partners to design a new crossing with a cohesive design that will be resilient to future earthquakes.
We are delighted that our bridge over Bracklinn Falls in Callander, designed with Cake Industries, has been awarded Gold in the Scottish Design Awards as part of the “Low Cost Project Schemes under 200k” category. The plate-girder bridge is constructed from perforated weathering steel and was assembled on site from small modular components necessitated by the lack of access to the remote beauty spot.
Another award winner! The Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge has been awarded the Figg Medal for “a single, recent outstanding achievement in bridge engineering that, through vision and innovation, provides an icon to the community for which it was designed”.
We are delighted that the Kids’ Bridge at Perth Childrens’ Hospital (Koolangka Bridge) has been presented with an award for Best Community Infrastructure by the Property Council of Western Australia.

Our bridge across the White Cart River in Paisley has been granted Planning Permission by Renfrewshire Council as part of a new road corridor linking Paisley with AMIDS, Scotland’s home of manufacturing innovation.
