Building Bridges is an extraordinary team building activity requiring teams to engage in clever project management and group collaboration to construct a bridge to specific client specifications. The bridge needs to be built with enough structural integrity to allow a remote-controlled vehicle to safely navigate the bridge and all the custom features integrated by the teams!

Bridges can be creatively designed, decorated and custom branded by each team. Awards will be given for various categories such as creatively engineered design, branding and the most efficient use of available resources.

At the end of the event, the bridges will be disassembled, and the non perishable food products used in the construction will be donated to a local charity.

Here’s how it works…

  • 1Your build a bridge team building event will start with an opening speech and ice breaker by your Event Facilitator welcoming the group and delivering instructions on how the day will unfold! Your group will be divided into teams of 6 to 8 participants per team and will get ready to start building bridges with one another!
  • 2Each team will be responsible for constructing and engineering a bridge out of cardboard, wooden sticks, disposable food products and various craft supplies. Teams will need to collaborate with each other with the limited resources available to accomplish this task.
  • 3The final part of the program will see each teams bridge connected and installed together creating one massive company bridge. This is an exhilarating finale which will see teams navigate the entire bridge structure using a remote-controlled vehicle.

The Perfect Activity for Groups Who Are:

Hands On

Your team loves to build, construct and learns through experiences rather than from a book. Experiential learning is integral to your company culture and growth!


Giving back to your community and those in need is important to your group, and they’re excited by the idea of taking part in a philanthropic activity as a team.


Giving back is part of your team’s mantra and an important element of any group activity. The opportunity to give back excites your team! Competitive team building activities have taken a back seat to collaborative give back opportunities!

Grupo Events’ charitable bridge building team activity inspires participants to form strong and lasting business relations during their time in Mexico and at the office. Staff will enjoy creatively collaborating with one another to build a bridge that meets the client’s specifications while giving back to the local community.


“We are an Australian based conference and incentive manager with over 20 years experience in designing and delivering events all over the world. In June this year we had a high end group in the Riviera Maya for eight nights. These were well traveled guests we have been spoiling for many years with the unimagined and unexpected – definitely not your average group and one which is tough to keep engaged.

Jordan and Estefania put their hearts and souls into finding innovative solutions to our rather unusual requests and helped us deliver yet, another “best event ever”. If you are looking for a team in Mexico to work with you, rather than for you, your search is over “
