28 | THE NEW POLCEVERA BRIDGE: A BIG LIFT FOR ITALY


Many cities around the world can be instantly identified by a landmark bridge, and Genoa, Italy’s Polcevera bridge was certainly among them. Te tragic 2018 collapse of the 1960’s era structure reshaped the port city visually and logistically, severing a critical transportation link. Now, less than two years later, and only through a massive and bold effort on the part of Italy’s government and by its construction industry, work is quickly wrapping up on a vastly superior replacement structure.


32 | THAT’S RIGGIN’ AWESOME! AN INFORMAL LOOK INSIDE THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY


Late last year, two construction industry veterans launched a video podcast with the hope of serving as ambassadors to their industry. Trough twenty-plus episodes to date, the hosts have explored the tools trades that make the industry work through informal and entertaining conversations with a remarkably broad range of guests. We wanted to learn more about their goals for the program, and they invited us on to ask them about it. Here we share what co-host Pat Clark told us about Tat’s Riggin’ Awesome!

ON THE COVER: View from the operator’s seat up the boom of a Manitowoc MLC650 Lattice Boom Crawler (with VPC MaxTM). With the right training and skill, this could be your office – it’s a great view and the scenery can change dramatically from time to time – and it comes with great rewards and great responsibilities. In our Second Feature, we speak with Pat Clark about how he and his That’s Riggin’ Awesome co-host Mike Walsh are trying to provide a younger audience with an entertaining and honest introduction to the construction industry, and the skilled trades that make it work.
