Building Bridges: Harbor Technologies Challenges the Supremacy of Steel and Concrete Beams
Harbor Technologies and Kenway Corporation both employ HBC (or Hillman Composite Beam) technology in improving aging infrastructure, such as bridges. The composite beams are installed the same as traditional steel beams but last longer and require less maintenance. The upfront cost is higher, which can preclude department of transportation departments from using them. Many industries already use composites (boats, sporting good equipment, aerospace and auto manufacturing) and it is believed the transportation industry will soon follow. Includes a text block, with images, of six Harbor Technology bridge projects. [images]
