We are excited to be back at HMS (Heavy Movable Structures) this year in Orlando, Florida on October 17-20 at booth #307! HMS is a not-for-profit technical organization of volunteers focusing on the heavy civil facilities utilized by or for the public benefit, with emphasis on, but not limited to, movable bridges.
HMS is primarily concerned with movable bridges and other large civil engineering structures.
The main mission of HMS is to provide forums for information interchange among bridge owners, government agencies, designers, contractors, suppliers, and other groups involved in movable bridges and heavy movable structures. This includes both privately owned and publicly owned bridges.
The scope or sphere of interest encompassed by HMS, has not been tightly defined by intention. At the present time, HMS is primarily concerned with movable bridges and other larger civil engineering structures such as navigation locks, dams, flap gates, flood control equipment, movable stadium roofs and other structures with large machinery in which most operational speeds are less than critical and forces are large.
As a primary provider of movable bridges, we look forward to networking with many other civil industry experts attending.
