Building Bridges

Designing, Planning & Building

Your successfully completed cardboard bridge will be strong enough to have a golf cart driven over it.  That’s the exciting finale that always elicits cheers and is a terrific ending to a day or week of meetings.

Building Bridges

We have all promised to cross that bridge when we came to it, but what do we do when that bridge comes to us, in pieces? If you’re like us, you look for the duct tape, but that alone won’t do it.  You’ll have to call on collaboration, communication, resource management, and some creative inspiration to get the job done! Building Bridges is a fun, engaging, hands on program with very powerful metaphors – where all departments of your company strive towards their own goals, but also play a vital role in the bigger picture.

In this team building activity you’ll split into teams and independently create spans of a bridge without any instructions! Each team builds their section and then everyone collaborates to attach the spans, making one solid piece. That done, it’s time to put it to the test—by driving a golf cart over it! (We originally wanted to use a tank, but our attorneys, well, ‘tanked’ the idea.)

This is a great way to challenge your group to turn a conceptual challenge into a tangible solution. Watch and be amazed at what your group accomplishes! We’ll provide the materials (and, of course, a golf cart). You provide the inspiration!
