The end of 2015 saw the completion of two beautiful bridges that span the White River in the White River County Park in Walworth County.  The funds for the bridges were provided by three Walworth County families through their family foundations.  PSG was engaged as their representative to oversee the project and maximize the impact of their generous gift.  This included coordinating efforts with Walworth County, the Geneva Lake Conservancy, and the Friends of the White River County Park.  Following initial contact by the donors to Peter Scherrer, PSG conducted a design-bid process, investigated existing similar installations, structured the funding mechanism, processed purchase orders, facilitated DNR approval, and monitored the construction process.
