M&M Attends Movable Bridge Symposium

TAMPA, FL – M&M will attend the Heavy Movable Structures, Inc. (HMS) 16th Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium, September 19-22 in Tampa, FL. The conference will include educational programming around the six industry disciplines: electrical/electronic systems, ownership/public use/management, performance/construction/maintenance, fluid power systems, machinery/mechanisms, and structural elements.

“As the movable bridge industry continues to evolve, it is important to exchange ideas and information,” said Michael Britt, PE, senior vice president and director of business development. “The HMS Symposium is a unique opportunity for owners, agencies, designers, contractors, suppliers and other groups to come together.”

Modjeski and Masters designed its first movable bridge over the Mississippi River in 1893. Since then, the firm has played a lead role in the industry with a unique blend of careful analysis and integrated structural, electrical and mechanical engineering expertise.

“We look forward to the opportunity to discuss scientific principles and practices, engineering disciplines, current technologies and state-of-the-art crafts with other industry professionals,” Britt continued. “In turn, we hope that the information exchanged will benefit the public through improved safety and reliability, more cost-effective utilization of public fund through improved design and maintenance practices, and increased awareness and conformance with environmental issues.”
