Located in a residential area of west Los Angeles and just minutes from the Pacific Ocean, the Brentwood Country Club is home to a challenging 18-hole golf course. When the course superintendent determined that new bridges were needed to cross some ravines, their architect contacted Western Wood Structures.
WWS presented an offer to Brentwood that included: the structural design, supply, and installation of the bridges. The Brentwood Board accepted our proposal which consisted of: two bridges spanning 30’ and one which is a 3-span bridge measuring 90’ in length. WWS also designed and sub-contracted the concrete drilled piers and caps. WWS supplied and installed the bridges from the timber caps through the rail system.
To satisfy the owner’s request, the bridges were manufactured from Alaskan Yellow Cedar, a species of wood that is naturally resistant to decay. AYC will get smoother as time progresses and the bridges will turn a natural grey in color.
The Glulam bridge components were pre-fabricated in our fabrication shop which decreased time spent on site.
The bridges were installed in approximately 3 weeks.
