Project plans to make a sustainable house from San Francisco Bay bridge scrap | GizMag.com

Project plans to make a sustainable house from San Francisco Bay bridge scrap | GizMag.com | Bridge | Scoop.it

The eastern span of the historic San Francisco to Oakland Bay bridge is slated for demolition, following its recent replacement by a newer bridge located nearby. However, one local resident hopes to ensure that the old bridge lives on – in some form at least – and plans to reuse some of the resulting scrap metal as building material for a sustainable home in a project suitably dubbed the Bay Bridge House.


Not to be confused with the western span of the bridge that hosts the bay lights installation, the eastern span is no longer in use and its demolition is expected to take a couple of years.


The Bay Bridge House project calls for multiple parts of the scrapped bridge to be used, including steel girders, ladders, wire, and even sections of road. These materials will go toward the creation of a house with sustainable features such as a green roof, solar panels, and rainwater recycling. Other materials needed would be sourced from local companies, and the project's creator David Grieshaber also states that he will apply for LEED certification.

What a creative way to give new life to an old bridge! As they say, "one man's trash is another man's treasure".
