The Amramp Boston team just completed installation of a temporary walkway at Wellesley College in that is almost 500 feet long!
The walkway will be used by students, staff and visitors to navigate a detour on the Wellesley, Massachusetts campus during renovations. The 48” wide walkway is ADA compliant and will also accommodate wheelchairs and bicycles.
The landscape architects directing this renovation were concerned about placing asphalt or other solid walkways over the beautiful trees along this route. The solid surfaces can block rain from reaching the roots which may cause the trees to die and change the appearance of this beautiful campus. Amramp’s open mesh surface will allow moisture to pass through to the tree roots and not upset the delicate balance of nature while providing a safe, sturdy walkway for students, staff and visitors.
The Amramp system is made in South Boston, Massachusetts from recycled and 100% recyclable steel and is cost effective, energy efficient and attractive. When the walkway is no longer needed, it will be disassembled and returned to inventory to be re-used somewhere else rather than ending up in a landfill.
