"Design and construction
of the Glacier Skywalk"
"Dr. Simon Brown P.Eng,
Principal, Read Jones Christoffersen Ltd."
Dr. Brown is a Principal of
the structural consulting firm Read Jones Christoffersen
Ltd., design lead and structural and glass consultants for the Glacier
Skywalk project. He is a voting member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 421 “Design of Reinforced Concrete Slabs”

When Brewster Travel Canada
requested Expressions of Interest for the Glacier Skywalk, “visceral and
gob-smacked” were the terms they used to describe their vision. This was
achieved by maximizing the inherent exposure “fear factor” offered by the
site. A glass walkway was developed using an innovative self-anchored
eccentric cable suspension system. Simon will discuss the challenges
associated with the design, construction, and environmental considerations
of this one-of-a-kind project.
