Neptune's Way Glasgow

Bridge construction animation.

The engineering and timing challenges of a process as complex as building a bridge are difficult to communicate on paper.

We were asked to join Balfour Beatty's engineering team to animate the virtual construction of the bridge and walk through the logistics of this engineering process. The preparatory work involved on the banks and in the river was dwarfed by the huge arch components arriving by sea from Italy on lifting barges and the manoeuvering of large deck sections in the confined space at this busy part of the river.

Our film analysed how each stage in the construction of this Richard Rogers and WS Atkins design would come together to create this unique bridge curving over the Clyde.
