Atlantic Bridge & Engineering was founded as a small union steel erector by Victoria Kolenda. At that time, Victoria’s goal was to address the need of building and bridge contractors throughout New England for high-value installation of complex structural steel and precast.
Not long after the company’s founding, ABE was awarded several contracts on the Central Artery/tunnel Project (known as the “Big Dig”) in Boston, MA.
ABE diversified by opening a steel fabrication facility in Amesbury, MA, specializing in the fabrication of miscellaneous metals and structural steel for buildings and bridges.
ABE joined a select group of New England companies to earn the exclusive designation of the American Institute of Steel Construction’s (AISC) Advanced Certified Steel Erector and Certified Steel Erector.
Due to increased industry demand, ABE relocated its fabrication business to Candia, NH. This move allowed the firm to maximize its capabilities and fabricate structural steel in addition to miscellaneous metals.
During that year, ABE successfully completed the AISC Audit Program and met the quality certification requirements to become an AISC Certified Fabricator of Structural Steel Buildings and Simple Bridges.
