Aerial / Ropeway Transportation
In steep terrain and dense urban settings, the use of cable-propelled transit (think gondolas!) is on the rise. This technology moves people in motor-less, engine-less vehicles that are propelled by a steel cable, commonly called a ropeway. SCJ is at the forefront of bringing this efficient and cost-effective solution to communities. Whether you’re looking for expert advice during planning, design and procurement of a new ropeway system, or your existing aerial system needs inspection, modification or repair, we’ve got you covered.
Amusement Rides and Specialty Structures
When do you want the “dizzy” in dizzying heights? When is it a good thing to feel the earth move under your feet? Who helps a hill withstand a landslide and a person slip down a waterslide? Be confident we’ll bring to your project an appreciation for the importance of both the structural demands, as well as the heavy use and harsh conditions the sturcture may endure throughout its life cycle. We provide planning, design, forensics and construction support for unique structures from project initiation through PS&E, construction and testing.
Our tower specialists have worked with clients from coast to coast, providing engineering and planning services to the municipal communication, cellular and fiber optic transmission industries. We understand the nuances of tough, mountaintop sites as well as dense urban settings and design not only for current demands, but also plan for the unknowns of the next 50 years.
Complex telecommunications infrastructure projects are often daunting for municipalities because agencies may go years without a similar project. But we frequently work in this world – from early feasibility studies and planning to engineering and procurement all the way through implementation, audits and inspections.
